Im looking into a caster/camber kit for my EF. Had a wheel alignment done last week and the guy recommended having one fitted because the car has excessive negative camber on the front right. Anyone else had one fitted? What they cost? Was it worth while getting. Do repco etc. have them or would i have to go to Pedders or somewhere like that.

It is a must to fit a camber/castor kit to the falcons.(lowered is a must)
It is the only way to get the front allignment spot on.Not close enough but spot on!
I have a pedder kit that is a shim type.
There is also a ratchet style available but I like the idea of shims.Once shimmed up and tight should not move!
Give Pedders a call for a correct price.
I am tipping there are probably other branded shim type kits available.
Someone else may know exact brand.

Nolothane do a shim kit part # 45146, you will need two kits. Have used in my old EB and the EF and have had no problems.
