Hi guys does anyone know the amount of camber built into the upper A arm please? I've fitted a complete front end and need to set it up. Cheers

Stock camber spec is 0 to +1*. Usually takes a minimal amount of shims.

Stock caster spec is 0 +/-1/2*.

On some cars it will be difficult to get either because you run out of shims to remove. In that case you either need to pull the frame back into shape or purchase some offset upper control arm shafts.

With power steering you need more caster. There are several ways to get that but the usual fix is aftermarket upper control arms which have the ball joint mount moved rearward. It would be good for manual steering too but the steering effort increases too much.

Rick-L thanks for the reply, however that was my question, I have fitted Ridetech strong arms and wondered what the camber was they built in to them.

Hey Rodney, are these redesigned control arms or can I get the same 3 degrees of camber from your control arms that I purchased 2 years ago?

Camber or caster?

Set up with 3 degrees of camber seems a lot?

You should be able to, nothing has changed since you bought those.

I'm hoping they have caster and camber confused. Typically, we run 0 to 1/2 degree negative camber.

It really depends on the car, they all very some.

Sorry for the delayed responses, the web browser that I have always used would not let me reply. I had to switch browsers.
