Default Help with negative camber

I bought my ranger listed below for $600, thought it was a good deal. Just needed to level out the front end. Here is the story on the truck as I was told. The guy that I got it from got ahold of the truck about 7 years ago, it had a 3 inch lift done on it, He pulled a block from the leaf springs and replaced the front coils with "stock" coils pulled from a wrecking yard. After doing this the front tires has a bad negative camber problem. He decided not to mess with it and so the truck sat a 4 years. Since then he lost all the parts and equipment. Since I bought the truck I have changed the radius arms with "stock" arms pulled from a 94 Ranger. So far this hasn't fixed anything. I just want to get the camber issue fixed, I was wondering if putting coils from an F150 or V8 Explorer would help to lift the front end and fix the camber problem? I am new with suspensions and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Default Re: Help with negative camber

So I figured out what was done to my ranger to lift it, now I need to figure out how to lower it stock again. The Ibeams were bent, I have looked through out the threads but have found nothing to answer this, what years can I take ibeams from for my 96 listed in my signature?
Can I pull any pre 96 ranger, or do i need to stick with the Gen II?

All 2wd rangers til 97 should work but I would just pull em from a 2nd gen to make sure.
