I'm not seeing indication of it being too low ...

I only see evidence of hard cornering.
Go do some very hard corners then take tire surface temps from the outter edge to the inner. You'll see the outer edge will be significantly higher than the rest.
That is where negative camber becomes beneficial to tire life. If you can spread the load/heat you can actually corner harder W/O the tire overheating and loosing traction.

If you run a little more negative you'll save your tires.

my finger is pointing at cuts in the tire and it rubs. So yes, it is too low, but thanks for the unneeded lesson.

no he's on to it, most people don't have trouble with lowering it a little. Those wheels are sticking out further than they usually do, are you still using the wheel spacers? Maybe the offest is wrong on the rims you got? I would look at that otherwise your going to need to flare them

just buy a new car and start over again, you can send that one up north to me (for free/minimal cost) and I'll look after it. nice build, but now I'm itching to do something (if I could find one not rusted out around here) even though I told the wife when I joined here that I wouldn't be looking for ideas, just repair info. I got a little carried away when I joined the Durango forum
