Having recently lost a wheel bearing in my 77 RC with fulltime Dana 44 and 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern, I recently swapped out the stock components with chevy 3/4 ton stuff from the knuckles out. Everything fits great but it seems like I have too much positive camber now. Does anyone have experience with this? What camber angle is normal? Negative, positive, or zero?

The specs would be plus or minus 1 degree, but 0 is what it should be

Thanks for the info. Any idea what problems I should look out for assuming I'm too far out of spec? Is there any adjustment or fix for it?

I was wondering if it had something to do with a difference in the angles that dodge/chevy steering knuckles mount to the axle (I have my dodge version dana-44 with chevy steering knuckes, hubs, brakes, etc.) Or maybe an error on my part during install of ball-joints. Anyone have experience with this kind of swap?

Caster angle combined with incorrect toe would make the front end appear out of camber, when viewed from the front. Get the toe aligned it may solve your problem.
