Default Lift kit question

I had a rhox 3 inch lift kit installed, with 10X 20 tires.

The front wheels seem to be toeing in on the top a little, I concerned that my tires will wear uneven. Is there a way to straighten the toe issue ? I think it may be unfixable....

I will post a pic tomorrow

Thanks

Hello, the rhox drop spindle kit has no adjustment for camber (which is the toe out effect you are descrbing) However there is a way you can cheat them a little bit and the cart will handle much more stable and not so darty and will help your tires wear more even.

You need to park your cart with the steering wheel straight. Then loosen the jam nut on the steering rod ends, then loosen the steering rod bolt and make one turn out on each of them. Then reinstall the rod ends and you will see that the top of the wheel is not nearly out as much. This is because of the design of the rhox drop spindles. As you toe them out more the wheel sits flatter. So you will have to play around with it to find the happy balance between being towed out and being cambered out.

Hope that makes sense.

what is the difference between toe out and camber out ?

Is this a easy process, I don't even know what a jam nut is..

Is this something I should attempt, Im pretty mechanically inclined but new to the cart thing....

It's a very easy process, you will see where the steering rods attach to the front spindles. However with that being said if you don't feel comfortable doing it then getting someone who does would be best.

Camber is the angle your wheel is at from top to bottom, and toe in/ out is the wheel angle from front to back( best way I could think of explaining it)
