Hi all, When fitting a kmac camber kit do I use factory shims when bolting it up to the body or just bolt it straight up no shims required? It's for an eb I can't find any instruction on how to fit the kit anywhere. I'm thinking it would need at least 1 shim per side between the kit and body to ensure it sits flush? If anyone knows any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers

Fit the camber kit, (assume that you have fitted lowered springs) then get a wheel alignment. You won't know what shims you will need to get it right.

I would fit the same amount of shims that are there already and get it straight down for an alignment.

Thanks SWC! Not too sure what shims went where but I got 2 in the passenger and none in the drivers side, pretty sure the drivers side never had any. I almost got it driving now just need to do a backyard wheel alignment and I should be on my way! I put one of the shocks in backwards aka inside out (the abs bracket is facing towards the rear of the car not the front as it should), I couldn't get it to fit the proper way, I don't have ABS so it didn't matter but could this be a problem?

I'm going to jack it down after the alignment I guess I'll know if they can be fitted backwards soon enough!!! I fitted new springs, bearings a reco steering rack along with the camber kit :D
