Default Front of my 2009 Lifted Precedent was gone wild!!

Hello Everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I took my 2009 Precedent for a stroll around the block and when I got back I noticed my passenger front tire was slightly toed out.

Because I have OCD and like things matched and straight I took it upon myself to slightly adjust the passenger tire and rim inward until both front tires matched straight with my back tires.

I installed a RedHawk rear flip seat today and then took my cart out for a stroll around the block. the front end is all over the place and to the point where it would seem like the front of the cart severely goes to one side of the road or the other. Did my simple adjustment to the camber of the front end through the entire thing out of wack?

Just for reference my 2009 Precedent does have a 5 inch lift on the front and the Rhox Lift 103 kit on the front. Please help me tame the front of my buggie!!!

it might have not been tightened enough and came loose...
you do need a little toe in on lifted cart (1/8 inch )

Installed a 6" spindle kit on a 2006 Precedent
I fixed my camber with a new kingpin set
but for some reason I cannot get the toe + or - to stay put
I fix it and it looks good and when I go drive it down the block and get back its out of whack again what could be the problem
any help would be great what can I check ???

I dont think the camber ( top and bottom ) is throwing you all over the road. Its most likely the toe (front and back). You need to adjust it like crash said with 1/8" toe in (fronts closer). Dont try to eyeball it use a tape

Not sue about yours other than to make sure the nuts on the tie rods are tight

ok I have just found what might be a big mistake and the cause of all my problems, headaches, and time spent adjusting and fixing
The tire pressure in all my tires is below 5 PSI
I wonder if that would make a huge difference with camber and toe
will have to inflate tomorrow morning as I need to leave to work until tomorrow
