    HelP please

    Hi people, just to start of I have just signed up am Mark, got my gsi a few month back from a guy on aon. Any ways my problem I have is I have just put some raceland coilovers on, they are not lowered all the way still got some distance to go but my camber is unreal. Just had it checked today and it's -4 and the camber bolts I had in only took it to -3.24 how can I bring this closer to at least -1. Cheers in advance

    Mark

    they shockers are camber adjustable aint they?
    loose both bolts on the shocker where it bolts to the hub and you should be able to move the hub in the vertical axis to achieve the camber you need.

    What do you mean mate, I have camber bolts but they don't adjust enough, is the raceland shocker designed with camber adjust in them?

    Cheers for your reply.

    Camber bolt should be in the top hole in each shocker.

    Assuming these are the Eibach bolts, if you don't have the washer positioned correctly then you won't get full adjustment.

    For some shocks, the top holes are oval/enlarged which means they can be moved away from/closer to the car chassis to adjust the camber.
