Shim type is best. Ratcheting ones dont cut it for me.

I have the ratcheting type from K-Mac (like just about everything under my car) I cant complain it works, my EA has the shim type and it also works.

Noobe question time: where do you adjust the camber from? i have looked under my EF and it has Nolothane bushes from the front to the rear which sorta dissapointed me as i was hoping to get it done so i could notice the difference.

basically the upper suspension arm has 4 bolts
these bolt the arm to the chassis
the bolts are then undone and the gap between the arm and the chassis is shimmed up or shimmed down ( depending on the movememnt required )
then tightned back up

this allows for camber and cast to be adjusted

toe in/out is done via the tie rod ends
