Default really bad camber??? HELP

I Just bought a project truck (1986 bagged and bodydropped, ranger) I can handel most of the work but, can't seem to figure out this camber problem. The truck when lifted up to drive it, gets such bad camber. The wheels are tilted out at the top.that the truck is undrivable. It's bad just going straight but drivable, its when u turn in somewhere that things go very wrong. The wheels lay over so bad that the outside of the wheel all most touchstone the ground. Completely roles the tire under.

The truck has dream beams with a made torrision bar going back to the frame. The bags are on the version bars. Any help would be great. Thanks Jason

it sound's like you need an alignment at ride height, and you don't have torsion bars you have Ibeams and radius arms. So your bags are mounted to the radius arm correct? if so you definitely need an alignment at ride height.

Thanks for the help. I decided to just rip out the crappy Ford ibeam junk. I will be replacing it with Toyota control arms and spindels. So no more problems. This is myfirst ranger build, and I think it will be my last. Good luck to u guys that play with rangers all the time, i just don't have the patients anymore.
