    Have '92 f-250 4x4 When backing up the front wheels toe in and looks like the camber is way off only when backing up? Seems to be worse on passangers side. When pulling forward wheels are straight as an arrow? Had alignment checked twice and seemed to be ok said may need shime kit but is not that off? Checked balljoints and springs seem to be ok? any help would be appreciated

    TTB suspensions are a PIA!!!

    Check all the suspension bushings and the TTB arm mounting brackets under the engine crossmember. They have a tendency to crack.

    Did the shop you took it for the alignment actually check the steering and suspension components? Sounds like a tie rod or ball joint to me. Also when you drive forward and the wheels are straight is the plow down, and then up for reverse, or does it act this way regardless of plow position? The weight of the plow can make a big difference.

    sounds like a bushing or ball joints to me too. I would really take a look at the brackets too, My old boss had the mount break off the frame the last snow we had on his F-250 same body style

    You were right. Re-checked passangers side bracket where the pivot bolt is and the bracket was loose and the upper mounting bolts were cracked at the bracket

    It's common with the TTB. Glad you figured it out :drinkup:
