Gday everyone, just wondering if someone can answer a quick Q for me:

I just bought a lowered car, i want to raise it an inch, it seems the camber cannot be properly adjusted with how low it is.

Whats the cheapest, legal way to do this, i am taking it for a rwc asap.

Thanks
Matt

GAS-MAN-
Fit one inch longer springs and check the range of your shocks, they may need replacing too. Then sell your removed suspension on to some naive optimist who thinks he can make it work. There are plenty of them in loose Slammit Land.

Gday, this is all on a 97mdl EL fairmont.
The camber kit is an idea i was pondering, but i dont know much about them and i dont want to need to rotate the tyres every 6months.

Thanks for the ideas gentlemen, i might buy a set of spring tensioners and fit those spacers which will give me 10mm :)

Hopefully thats enough :)
Matt

All a camber kit is is the factory upper arm mounts with longer bolts, so you can fit more shims.
They actually come from factory with a shim tack welded onto the mount.
If you take it to a good wheel aligner there is no reason he cannot get the wheels aligned to stock settings.
