Just finished putting in my 330mm CEBCO kit in the wagon. when I put it onto its wheels it looked fine. Until I reverse out the driveway when it goes all supercar/drift spec on me with s**t camber.

So cebco use a ea/eb upright as per saloon cars. Is the upright the problem here or is it anything else?

Would fitting EA upper and lower arms help?

FML. I'm going to eat chicken dipped in chocolate. A friend said it just as good a prozac.

If it's using an EA upright, the toe could be out by a country mile......dunno if that's affecting it though, is it lowered? if so it may need a different caster/camber kit.

Its slightly lowered. Id say XR spec. Not sure if a camber kit will have enough adjustment. :cry: :roll:

Faaark! I thought my negative camber was a little excessive until I saw this :lol:

Something doesn't look right there. Not sure how much difference (if any) there is between EF/EL and EA-ED uprights, but the toe just looks way out. Camber kit will space out the upper arm/angling the top of the wheel outwards more, but I have doubts that it will fix that amount of camber

there is a slight difference between ea/ed to ef/el, from memory its the hole for the tie rod end is a few mm off centre but they are interchangable..

you just need a wheel alignment...

Yeah I reckon a wheel alignment will fix it.

From the photos, it looks like the toe is out a fair bit. Can you set up a string line and try to get it close before you drive it?

The pics I posted were of the car in 2 different locations. I have sourced a camber kit and will be fitting it this weekend. I will do a home toe alignment good enough to get me into town.

I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Although I thought the same thing before the camber issue. :roll:
