1994 F250 alignment issues

Okay so i have this pickup, 94 F250 XLT 4x4 7.5L extended cab.
evertime i back up, my front tires tilt in towards the truck and the front end sinks down a good 2 inches. so fromt the front my tires are like this....
/--\ and my steering wheel turns half turn to the right. I think it is the axle beam bushing. does anyone else have any idea what it could be??

You'd have to try to look under it when it happens to see what's loose. Even jacking it up andpull things around to see what moves and shouldn't. Compare both sides.

How loose is the balljoint? If it's quite loose, it can do that. It has to be pretty loose though. To check the bushings, pry the suspension around. Bushings that are that loose can usually be seen by looking at them. Make sure to use jack stands. The alignment places should check for worn parts.

Re: 1994 F250 alignment issues

its not so loose as to make the truck wobble, it moves out about .010 of an inch in and out. i have checked most everything on a lift at the college. to check that axle beam bushing, do i just put a pry bar in between the 2 beams and pry or how does that work?

Re: 1994 F250 alignment issues

You should be able to see the bushings that are bad. Maybe the track bar is loose. It's best to have someone check it before an alignment and tell them you'll replace the bad parts yourself when they tell you what it needs.
