Default Cocked out front wheel!!

Well my drivers side front wheel is cocked out pretty bad. The thing is that I have already replaced both lower and upper ball joints on that side and tie rods and drag link and yet it's still cocked out! Can't figure out what it is. Somebody help!

What to you mean cocked out? !oo/ like sticking out at the top??

Do the brakes feel different at times? Did you check the hub bearing?

Has your truck been lowered?

If it's not lowered it could be a bad coil spring or the upper control arm has slipped in the adjustment slots.

I have a 95 1500 4x4 and had the same issue. I ended up relacing the ball joints and on the lower joint I put a 1 3/4 offset. I also had a bad hub assembly and replaced it with a new timkin. Now, life is good Camber problems resolved, no noise, and everything is tight
