Question camber issues on 89 ford ttb

pretty new to the ttb setup. i have a 6in lift on it and now the camber and alignment is going crazy. when i go in reverse the tires toe in drastically. driving forward causes them to toe out. bushings and everything look good. any ideas??"??

Drop pitman arm and set your toe. If you already have the drop pitman then have your toe set.

Your steering angles are forcing your toe to lift/pull down on your suspension. The steering linkage needs to be as horizontal as possible.

My pitman arm has a 4in drop. It would need to be another 3in lower for the linkage to be horizontal and match the pivot points and front axles. Should I just try n find a larger drop pitman or should I change the front linkage? I'm pretty new to the camber and toe issues.

The ttb is gonna do that a little bit anyway but it should'nt be to the extreme. I have a 4 inch lift on my 96 and i have had everything replaced and still cant get it to stop.
