    The truck was in a wreck where a trailer going across the front caught one of the two hocks and bent frame about 3". Patched it up adjusted toe in and kept using it since it drove okay. Now I got bad wear on tire. Is there an camber adjustment on these Fords?

    Need some suggestions on where to start. Trying to keep it going until Jan when we got more time. I plan to put it on jacks this weekend and check for any obvious wear.

    You'll need a camber kit to adjust.

    Wouldn't it be easier/better to take it to an alignment shop?

    Most alignment shops will not work on a vehicle that has been in a wreck.

    You need an alignment shop to tell you which one you need. And after that toe will have to be adjusted. There’s a bolt through it and the sleeve pops out with an air hammer

    I bet you need ball joints. And bearings probably loose. Wouldn’t surprise me if something else is bent.

    I always avoided wrecked vechiles. Especially ones that aren’t fixed properly. I would have told customer all I’m doing is setting toe until it goes to a frame shop

    Yes those are the ones. You can change them yourself but like others said find a shop.

    I promise there's a shop out there that will do alignment no warranty though
