Smile Camber??

Hey guys, so I'm new to FRF and I'm pretty stoked to read what everyone has done to their trucks. So here's my first post:

I lowered my 2011 Ranger XLT about 3 weeks ago at a local shop in Hawaii and when they did the drop, I noticed a pretty mean case of camber on my front tires and my alignment was offset. I took it to another shop a couple days after doing the drop to get my exhaust done. There, I fixed my alignment, and did a cheap, easy solution to fix the small camber. I still have it, but it's not as bad as when I first did the drop.

Basically what I'm asking is, did anyone else experience the same camber issue when they dropped their truck? I know it's common for the alignment to go whack when dropping, but I was just interested.

He has coil springs, not torsion bars.

just need some adjustable camber bolts. dont know what parts stores you have in hawaii but NAPA has i think 2.5 degree bolts. Also your truck should be coils dont know why torsion bars are being mentioned.

Thanks for all the input, guys; I really appreciate it. After getting the exhaust, the mechanic recommended me getting the camber bolts like Chris said. I was just wondering if anyone else had the same thing happen and what their solution was.
