Everything I've read says the camber is aligned by adjusting the lower control arm, but the lower a-arm doesn't look like it can be adjusted, and the guy at the alignment shop that has been aligning cars for 20 years said the camber can't be adjusted???....any pics to help me out/show him what to do?!

we loosened the bolts on my arms, used a ratchet strap to pull them in and tightened the bolts back down. we do this on f150's all the time too.

So are the bolts in somewhat of a slot and not just a hole? Bc at first glance it doesn't look like the bolt can move unless it's in a small slot

the hole is a little bigger, you can get some adjustment but not a ton.

I got my 9012 HIR bulbs in and the 3000k HIDs in the fogs. I love the combo (until I have money to get HIDs in the headlights with new housings)! Here's a quick before and after pic. You can't really tell the light difference until your actually driving it down the road. I gained at least 50ft of white light (no yellow tinge) and the fogs work miracles on clarity.

Picked up some weather tech floor liners and put them in today..give them a 8/10. Nice material though and not at all slippery with the wet stuff

The front is a single bolt that is in a slot and the rear is a two bolt mount that is also slotted. There is at least a good inch of movement in the lower arms.

Looks great bro! So is it the cheap and worth while upgrade you were looking for? I know you want to eventually do the HID projector lows, but for now this should let you see a little better.

You'll love them. Had mine for about 4 years. Best floor mats going! Enjoy!

Oil change, lube, tire balance/rotation, greased up the caliper slides (good thing too, they were bone dry) brake service, replaced spark plugs and plug wires, gave her a nice cleaning

I haven't looked but I thought I read somewhere that our jeeps don't have grease fittings? What did you do to lube it?

Replaced both my hood support and lift gate supports with StrongArm supports. Boy what a difference, it's actually hard getting that lift gate to close now. Very happy with the results.
