Lightbulb Camber

Just a thought...

First I am aware of abnormal tyre wear that too much camber will cause, my steering will be wonkey etc etc etc...

Comparing a HGT and standard wishbone, they are the same dimensions except the HGT wishbone is slightly longer. Any implications if I were to install one on my 1.2? If it fits that is

And for the rears, can't seem to find any camber shims for Fiats, are there any other ways of fiddlin' wit the camber on the rears?

Its just a thought...

Re: Camber

there longer to have a wider track and allow for the tyres to be further out.

you cant camber the rears at all on fiats other than natural camber from lowring.

for the fronts you can get camber bolts though

Re: Camber

Hmmm... So no shims available for the rears and no possible way to adjust the camber atall?

CRAP my old Impreza had a set of those bolts and I didnt realise it

Re: Camber

the hgt has wider wings, so wheels may rub, and drive shafts may fall out

Re: Camber

as above....

Think also it would give you a massive amount of negative camber (eg, coupe turbo stock has -0.5 and is usually increased for road use between -1 and even upto -1.5,
massive negative would loose straight line stability and wear tyres pretty quickly.

I have a Marea front so that isnt a problem but never thought of the driveshafts falling out...

That was the plan, an abnormal amount of camber but looking at the work involved to keep that right plus drivability being practically diminished, I think thats that idea out the window...

What would be the recomended camber adjustment I could go to be?
