Default Alignment/Camber issues

My cart has some negative camber issues as you can see by the pic and have developed some uneven tire wear.

So far I've tried to wiggle the tires back and forth to see if there is any play in the tie rod or bushings. Doesn't appear to be. Anything else I need to check prior to making adjustments?

As far as adjustments, I haven't found anything specifc for ezgo rxv, but I did find this for club car. Do you think its about the same?

Not sure about the RXV, but for the TXT the procedure is to first align the axle (pic 1). Then align the wheels (pic 2). Could very well be the same.

Looks strange, the camber angle is not adjustable as far as I know.
Maybe someone else slammed the front end hard and bent something.
If thats not it you have some worn out pivot points, jack up the front off the ground then try to shake the tire.

No ezgo is not the same as club car front ends. There is no camber adjustment on the ezgo. only tow in out adjustment. It would have to be a bent axle , worn kingpins, or bad bearings

Maybe you need some wheelie bars to keep the front tires on the ground so thay don't hit hard after your jackrabbit launches

Seriously, there is no adjustment. If your front spindles are not bent, you may need to weld and redrill your spindle mount holes to get rid of excessive wear, or replace your hub or spindle bushings if they are worn. E-Z-GO went to plastic bushings and they don't last as long as the metal ones. I bought some real bronze bushings for mine.

sltintexas,

It says on the install instructions you posted that you may have to also purchase their camber adjustment kit...

If the front strut assembly is worn out, it can cause this. I have seen it on a few lifted Rxv & lots of abused G22 Yamahas (they have very similar front suspension style).

I put it on jack stands. there was no play in the wheels when I tried to rock them back and forth. I don't know how to tell if something is bent since the spindles aren't straight to begin with.

I did notice the tires were super low so i filled them. this could account for some tire wear, but I suspect there is more to it.
