    Any ideas, problem with M1GST

    been to see my car today and its now very apparent the o/s/f (Drivers side front) wheel has a really bad camber on it yet the n/s/f hasnt (looks perfect), we tightened up all bolts today and checked the wheel was sitting correctly on the hub etc.

    Any ideas what it could be? Also the camber kits from regal how much extra movement do they give?

    Cheers for any info..

    camber adjustment is done by the bolts on the strut just above the disk, are both sides the same ?.

    no its just the o/s/f n/s/f is fine spot on in fact. I am talking about nearly an 1 inch if differance. The bottom of the wheel sits further out than the top.

    you can get camber tie arms can you not for the mk4, and maybe a lower strut brace for white line may help

    as pearson said, i'd make sure that you can't push the camber out more by loosening the bolts, pulling the camber into positiont hen re-tightening them.

    otherwise sounds like the new sus leg might be out of whack, tolerance wise.

    dont forget the getting it looking right and lazer tested right can be really different,
    mine looked stright,and the camber looked ok,
    on the ramp it was about 30mm out and the camber was all over the show..
    OEM+ + more smoothing..
