alignment issues

Okay so I recently installed my H&R super sport spring without any iso's along with the maximum motorsports caster camber plates but when I took the cart to get it align they said that they could not do better than a negative 2% camber. Does anyone else have his problem.?

no with C&C plates they should be able to get you to 0 camber is you so wish..although i will say i have mine set for almost 2 degrees off so i can get better traction in corners.

Do you have a photo of the CC plates as installed in your car?

The Maximum Motorsports CC plates can be assembled with the bearing plates oriented in two ways. One provides a "positive" camber range, the other a "negative" range. It may be necessary to reverse the bearing plates to get the adjustment range you want.

This is from the MM installation instructions:


-2° camber will cause excessive wear on the tires' inner tread; it will also make the car handle much better...

I don't have a pic at the moment but my plates are like the bottom picture and the slots are maxed out and the plate hits at the end

The bearing plates need to be reversed so as to be as shown in the top "positive" position diagram. The "negative" position allows a range of most negative camber adjustment; this is only needed when people want to max out the camber for autocross or other racing.

This seems to be a fairly common issue, over the years I have reversed a them on a couple cars and pointed the issue out to a half dozen or so people on the forums--IDK if MM is shipping them out in the "negative" position or if they are just ending up being installed that way?
