What topscrt said. I took mine to three shops and a finally one shop called around and found someone about 1.5 hours away from me that can do it. I have to fix my column first before I can get it done. If you can find a classic car/truck shop they will likely know someone that can do it.

1961mike - They are not located in Hillsborough, unfortunately (for me anyway). They are in Kernersville. The name of the place is Beck's and here is a link from Google with all of the pertinent info.

Good luck!

Hello. I live in Acworth and just got my 66 f100 last week. Let me know if you find a place. I will let you know if I find one. I am going to call some classic car places near by.

I am just going to say,,, In all the years I have had my old Fords, and I have had A LOT of them, I have never, not once ever had to have the camber adjusted,,, now, if you have bent them for lowering purposes, ok,, but from normal everyday thrashing on mine, especially as a young stupid Jarhead, launching it over tank traps, never have I bent one,,,

Did you add a coil lift, or what is your reason for needing camber adjusted?

Ibeam adjustment

If you look at the front of my truck there is too much positive camber on the driver side it is going to wear the tires out need to adjust that in the shop manual from Ford it shows you must bend the I-beams in order to fix the positive camber

Haven't seen the front of your truck,,, did you replace springs?
Have you tried switching springs from side to side? Not trying to knock you or disagree,,, I know the only way to adjust camber is by bending beams, I am just saying, that in all of the Ford 2wd trucks I have owned, I have NEVER had to have the camber adjusted, i.e. bend the I-beams. My 66 F250 I had, I put different coils on it, and it had a slight positive camber. Just personally, I would look at other options before you have them bent.
