Just noticed that the camber on the front looks deceivingly incorrect to the eye. Is it just my bad eyesight?

I bet you need ball joints. Jack it up and see if the wheel moves when you push and pull on the top. I had to replace the driver side ball joints in my Daughters before I drove it home from FL. It was doing the same. They can also induce death wobble.

If its not the ball joints, you might want to get a laser on the axle, it could be bent, but I agree it is probably the ball joints.

If it drives straight, and doesn't get bad vibrations or death wobble then just run it. It's cool nowadays to have messed up camber anyways.

If this is true (hope it's not) I've got another d30 with 3.73s and fresh ball joints for sale

Vibes went away after I installed the transfer case lowering kit. Drives straight with no wobble. I think I am just ADD about the visual Very Happy

Agree, Looks to me like the toe is pointing in.... Set each wheel individually to straight ahead and see if the camber still looks crazy...

Camber cannot be adjusted. It fixed at the steering knuckle. If itís out of spec then worn ball joints, bent knuckle or bent axle.
