I have a std 80 series and after a trip last year to central aust, it suffered quite bad wear on the outer side of the left front tyre. Prior to the trip the vehicle had a new set of ARB springs installed which gave the vehicle about a 40mm lift. Before this, this type of tyre wear was present, but not to this extent. The caster and camber have been measured as:

Caster: Left +3/4, Right +3/4
Camber: Left +1/4, Right +3/8
Toe in 0.5mm.

I have been told that the eccentric bearing of the cast-o-line can correct this problem. Has anybody used this product and is there anything I should be aware of?

Thanks

The castoline might correct it but they can and do fail due to having smaller bearings to allow for the eccentric cone. bigger tyres and heavy loads will hasten the problem.
I've seen two vehicles lose a knuckle/wheel when they fail, both fortunately at slow speeds.
