Toe'd in would cause the same issue. Get an alignment done and they should be able to find the issue.
Search youtube, you'll get the idea. Not complicated. I agree I doubt it's a camber issue, if it were only one side I would consider it a possibility.I can't see it being camber as it's non adjustable on my solid kingpin front axle. Shainer suggested i could measure toe in myself, how is that done?
Yeah i seen those tube vids. I'm just gonna take it in have it done accurately. It's allready on stands, i could measure it just to see.Just because camber is not adjustable doesn't mean it can't be the problem. Think about where it's wearing and picture the tire on the ground.
Yes, you can sort of adjust toe in yourself, but you can't get anywhere near the accuracy that you should have. If the toe is that far off that it's scrubbing only one side (that would have to be a helluva lot) it's probably because someone adjusted the toe themselves without the use of proper equipment. Spec is -.05 to .45 of one degree with .20 preferred. Can you get that accurate with your tape measure?
Treat the old buggy to a proper alignment. That will tell you where exactly your camber is. It can be that far off if something is bent. If it's all within spec they will adjust the toe to exactly where it should be.
I've been a journeyman for almost 40 years and there's few things I don't do myself. Alignment is one of them. It's one of those things that without the proper equipment, you might get close,but close is not good enough when it comes to expensive tires, nice handling and good fuel economy.
Bent axle tubes change camber. Put it on a front end rack and let them tell you what the problem is. A lazor 4 wheel rack can tell if you have any bend in axles.I can't see it being camber as it's non adjustable on my solid kingpin front axle.

I'm not sure what a front end rack is. Do most alignment shops have those? It could very well be a bent tube, they don't look bent.Bent axle tubes change camber. Put it on a front end rack and let them tell you what the problem is. A lazor 4 wheel rack can tell if you have any bend in axles.
BTDT a couple of times.
I had the fronts flipped so the less worn side was on the outside and now that side is worn and they look like motorbike tires lol.Do you rotate your tires regularly?
The only thing i noticed that was touched was new leaves and u bolts. Everything else is covered in rust. Unable to upload pics of tires. It doesn't look like the threads on the tie rods have been adjusted ever.Alignment "rack". My money is on toe but without seeing a pic of the tread I couldn't say in or out.
Does it look like it has had a tie rod or 2 replaced?
Don't automatically think it can't be the kingpins on the D60. I had a similar issue and tried the alignment route before I figured it was the king pins that were worn. I replaced them and it has been good to go since then. Jack up the front end and see if there is play in them. Mine were worn so bad that when I jacked up the front end I could see the tires actually move inward just as the tires came off the ground.
