Too much rear camber


Recommended Posts

just get an adjustable camber kit from IE.


When a 2002 is lowered the rear suspension gains camber. Often on race cars you end up with too much camber. This kit consists of 2 sets of eccentrics and slotted brackets. Brackets are welded to the inboard trailing arm pickup points and eccentrics allow you to adjust camber. Removal of rear subframe, welding and some grinding is required. We also offer similar kit for toe adjustment. Most racers will want both.

Flipping the mounts is easy (comparatively). I covered the installation of a new set in my project blog. I totally forgot to flip mine then, and have been meaning to do it for months. You'll get a degree or so back. I have -2* according to my alignment shop. And with the camber plates up front at -1*, flipping will get me square.

Often on race cars you end up with too much camber.

and sometimes you end up with too little, depending on tires.

THe probbem wit the subframe mount flip is that it changes

the pinion angle of your diff. Which makes the rear u- joint work

a lot harder than it should.

Unless you move the rear mount, too, and realign the diff.
