Re: Caster camber help?

stock there is pretty much no adjustment, you need aftermarket caster/camber plates in order to gain some adjustment. I recommend MaximumMotorsports brand over the others for many reason.

There's plenty stock, if it's not enough just elongate the holes or get smaller bolts,

Re: Caster camber help?

The issue with the stock plates is that there's no way to adjust caster. The slots are only there for camber. That's why you need aftermarket plates to adjust both caster and camber.

If you're lowering the car .75"-1.25" you can probably get away with adjusting the stock plates for camber alone. Either way you'll want to get an alignment after any drop. That's when the alignment shop can adjust the camber and make sure your geometry is in spec.

Yes I have an alignment machine at class. So to adjust caster and camber I'm going to need to buy those plates? Oh well I'll get them after I lower it
