Make sure the arms and hinge pins are free of bind and that all the shock lengths droop etc are exactly equal length. Mostly i'm fussy about the tires and engine tune.

You need some shock shaft pliers and shocks are much less of a pain,only if they make a tool like that for turn buckles and camber links
