Hey guys,

I'm about to put in a set of shelby superlow sprinds with ultima lowered shocks and i've been told i need a camber kit to reduce tyre wear so i had a quick search on ebay and came up with this.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FORD-FALCON-EA-t ... .m20.l1116
My question is do I just need to buy two sets of these and do i need anything for the rear of the car?

Cheers,

Pat

well its the shim type, so its supposed to be more reliable than the thread type. I assume you will need to buy 2 of them kits. Might pay to ask the seller to be sure

you dont need anything else for the rear, apart from suitable short body shocks which you already have :)

isn't the factory setup shim type anyway ? my ea's got a camber kit but it's very similar to the stock bf setup, never paid much attention to other box cars but i'm sure they wouldn't be much unalike.

when i done the nolathane conversion and went for a wheel allignment it took the guy most of saturday to do it because it was all so far out. cambers only a matter of changing the shims. toe is achieved by difference in the two on one side ? if that makes sense.

ef_paddy that is a dam good price to pay. 18 nonths ago, I paid $150 for them, so go ahead. My EB only required one each side, but check. Change over took me 30minutes a side, and the alignment about the same a side, mind you my aligner is from the old school--no computers, all manual,and checked twice over 18 months with no movement.

The kit is only to do 1 side so you will need 2 kits plus postage so its not that gooder deal. Also some shim type kits dont have enough adjustment to suit lowered vehicles. I had the same issue when i purchased a shim type kite almost identical to the ones posted. I ended up installing Nolathane Evolution "worm" type kits in my EL. These had plenty of adjustment and have not budged in almost 2 years. They can be purchased from Repco. I paid $170 for both sides.
