Hey guys!

I took my car in to WA Suspensions a while back to get them to check it out. They gave me a big list of everything that needs replacing/adding on.


One of these things was a Camber Kit.

A mate of mine, and myself have all the gear to change the springs, shocks, all that guff, but is a Camber kit the sort of thing you can do with a backyard job? I figure I can save a truckload on labor doing it myself, and if I can, I will.

Is it a relatively simple, straightforward job, or is it something better left to the pros?

My old man and i fitted my camber kit on the el.. Um what i think it was straight forward.. easy... with 2 people it was easy as pie and the proper tools needed is like a rachet/spanner/shifter amoungst other things that i can't rememeber, if anyone likes list them on.. um and as everyone should know, the camber kit needs to be properly adjust from a wheel alignment machine or dude.

Yeah, I figured I'd pay for a wheel alignment, rather than doing it by eye :wink:

Use the shim type and put in shims to same thickness as the original pivot.
Then get it wheelaligned.
