Default Instant intense wobble- camber off??

Did a lift on my 2wd ranger that requires adjustable camber bolts to get a proper alignment. My dumb ass ordered two bolts- forgetting that EACH side needs two bolts. So right now one side has adjustable, one side has stock. Drove it down the block and it's wobbling BAD. I just stopped and parked it- didn't even go any further.
Could this be because the camber is uneven and the alignment is that bad? I can't think of what else would have instantly happened while replacing those bolts.
Going to put the stock back in that one side until the other adjustable shows up.

By adding the bolts you might have messed up the toe as well on the side with the adjustable. Good idea of taking them out and replacing them. That's all I can guess. You could also check to make sure everything is tightened down...just in case.

Just one more reason to NOT lift a truck. Put it back stock. It will be much safer and more reliable.

Toe has to be off from one side to another. As the tires are rotating they are fighting each other...

I woulda left it with the stock camber adjusters and at least it would have been even.

How much suspension lift you got? If it is 2 inches just adjust the toe.... It will have some negative camber but not that bad maybe maybe might need the cam bolts each truck is different... 3 inch suspension definetely will need the camber adjusters...

----------

What lift !!!!
