    I just finished my Icon UCA and Fox install and I can visually see too much positive camber.

    Is this ok to drive to the alignment shop or are there some adjustments I should make to get it closer and have less positive camber?

    Well that’s some lean for sure. Which arms? I can’t find the photo from the other post, I wouldn’t get on the freeway or go fast enough to build too much heat in the tire resulting in wear. But if no alignment available on Sunday it gives some time to try and get it a little closer...

    Off topic what size are your tires?

    Icon UCA’s not so worried about some tire wear more so about bearings etc. I can definitely adjust the lower control arms and or tie rods but not sure what is best never adjusted them before.

    Tires are 35x12.5

    I don’t think I’d be worried about the bearings myself, same thing I’d keep it slow on the way there.

    Yeah I noticed my bolts for the LCA’s are set to the inside as well going to do some research. I’m sure it’s not rocket science I simply prefer not to ruin anything on the way there and I can take city streets and avoid the HWY if needed.

    Truck drives straight but can clearly hear the tires not enjoying the current camber.

    Wondering if I can adjust the front bolts and push them out or if I have to do front and rear to get it to move. I think the rear bolts on the LCA are for caster...

    15 miles to the alignment shop, i wouldnt worry. its not going to break anything or wear down the tire nowhere enough to cause concern.
