Wheels bowing inward (Alignment Issues)

Hey, so my wheels on my truck are bowing in and giving me uneven tire wear. My alignment seems fine, everything is straight. Im running an icon, total chaos mid travel set up with maxtrac spindles and 1.5 wheel spacers. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Thanks, Brandon

There's no such thing as my alignment seems fine . It is or it isn't . It looks like a bent spindle possibly .

Or is your lower control arm about to break ? Hmmm looks flimsy as hell down there

"... alignment is fine..."

No it's not. Too much negative camber.

An alignment is more than just steering and toe.

i jumped it a few weeks ago so i think the negative camber could of possibly came from that or i broke something by doing so? if i cranked my shock up to give it more height would you think that could help, its at the lowest point right now

You don't fix your alinement by cranking your coil overs I say let some pre-load out and go get it alined. You may have bent the LCA or your frame rails but I doubt it unless you MEGA-HUCKED it

Was that before or after you started having this problem? I can tell you from the pics this can be at least slightly corrected by your alinement cams
