Front wheels

1993 f350 7.3 IDI 5spd std. 4dr long w/b dually steel flat bed.

I don't have a heavy bumper on front

Question, how do I fix my front tires more straight up and down
They are in some at top. There is some adjustment in spindles
But with the twin I beam I am not sure, I am used to A frame
Front ends. Would like to get as close to 0 as possible.

Thanks

Are you sure you have king pins? Pretty certain 93's had ball joints by then. If so, there are eccentric bushings available for the top ball joint. These can be rotated to offset both caster and camber. Also the axle inner pivot bushings are subject to wear. Best to remove axle from truck and press them out although it can be done on the truck.

The question I seek an answer for is simply; why, or why not?

Yes, you have upper and lower ball joints at the ends of the axle beams attaching the spindles.

From the sounds of it your inner pivot bushings are worn which is common. These are the point the axle pivots upon. I'd bet radius arm bushings could use attention also as they are a very high wear item.

I see what u r saying, but also the heights of the body up or down controls wheel standing. It could be weak springs who knows. I'll let the wheel align tech tell me when I go,

Thanks
