What do you need me to clarify?

I know in the front you use adjustable strut tops, but what can be used in the back to adjust camber? I need to get a fair bit of negative camber in the back in order for my wheels to clear the guard.

You ninja edited your post! Have you tried rolling you fenders and running stretched tires first? Excessive negative camber will wear through tires quickly.

Hehe, thought Aussie slang might get a few people confused.

Have got rolled fenders (although I suspect the putty was not removed prior) and have 235 on 9.5 inch rears. Do have 5 mm spacers but don't want to get rid of them. Don't really care too much if it chews through tires so long as I can have it slammed :)

adjustable arms at the back of course

you can get adjustable rear camber arms but when u adjust them negative itll start rubbing on the inside of the fender well, not the outside.

lol, yup you will rub on the inner, remove the spacers

BreakMyWallet 10-14-2008 05:47 PM

well if you remove the spacers, you will rub more. you acutally need to play around with different spacers depending on how much camber you have.. go to your car and stick your hand through the wheel and see how close it already is to the inner well in the rear.

It turns out its all good. Lowering the car more gave the required amount of camber so it doesn't rub too much. Cheers.
