Mount fixed chamber plates


Recommended Posts

If the "rivets" are threaded, they might be used to mounting. Everything mounts from the inner (bottom) of the fenderwell. First, the camber plates bolt up using the existing holes in the fender and then the strut bearings mount to the camber plates (which should have three threaded holes) using some very short bolts (about 7mm or so--nothing longer than the thickness of the camber plates). The strut bearings cover up access to camber plate bolts, so it is wise to install each item separately. The strut is then installed using the correct sequence of washers and spacers. Think of the camber plates as a big "washer" that mounts between the strut bearing and the fender and you should get the idea.

And locktite the short bolts securing the stock upper strut mount to the camber plate. If you'll unbolt the swaybar end link you can gain some extra downward clearance to work with. When I installed mine I left the weight on the wheel and removed the three 13mm nuts from one strut mount . I then knocked them out of the upper mount with a sharp blow with a punch and hammer. I then jacked up the car and mounted the camber plate atop the stock strut mount. I lowered the car back down and fastened the new camber plate through the strut tower using the three 13mm nuts removed in step one. It's really dead simple.
