    jamex shocks and springs camber issues or no

    looking at a set of jamex 40mm lower shocks and springs
    has anyone fitted them and had camber issues, ie they put a huge elongated hole in the hub mount and you can never get it right yourself or are they ok for this as my racelands are a nitemare and theres no laser alignment near me

    i would suggest getting it set up properly tbh anyway..

    easyest way to do it urself as a temp fix is change suspension and tighten up etc,..

    once car on ground ( best on a ramp for this tho ) undo the adjustment bolt slightly and manually try get the wheel sitting correct with the cars weight on it.. it stakes a bit o fannying about but can be done..
    The coupe...ITS ALIVE & back from the dead....again!

    Mine needed Eibach camber bolts put in to set the correctly, however I'm having to pay for this to be done in the end. I bought a Trakrite Camber Gauge which could work if you have a reference car to get the correct setting from and then park your car in the same place and set yours...
