Leaning front tires

I have a 98 tacoma with a 6 inch trailmaster lift and the front tires are leaning in at the top. Does anyone know what could cause this? I have called P.A.G. and they want to sell me a bunch more junk because they dont know what it is either. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thank-you

You kinda need the UCA's. That's why they are leaning in. What kit is it? I cannot find a Trailmaster 6" for a first gen?

It is a discontinued kit from trail master you can call 928-636-7080 if you want to ask them. I think it was a stupid idea to do away with them, but thats the way the kit was designed
