Hey guys, this past weekend I installed the SPC camber bolts for the front of my box to achieve -1.75 of camber. I also bought some custom mounts for my universal air bag in the front strut. Scion4life on SL had these made and helped me put them on. Tell me what you guys think. For people wondering, if you don't want to pay $600+ for easystreets and etc. I used my stock strut and used this custom mount to make the universal air bag a direct bolt on. NO WELDING. You do have to cut the cup where the spring used to sit.

Basically the cusco can go i think 3 degrees but chris only needed what the SPC gave him (1.75). When you go pic to pic you can really tell the difference. nice chris but soon you will have comp... you know what im talking about!! lol

ingalls also has a bolt camber set so try and look for them too.....

Hey Dajap, Is your vehicle (which is very very nice by the way) a daily driver?? If it is, about how much do you drive in a month?? And how ofter do you have to change tires due to camber wear?? Just courious, I work at a tire shop and was wondering how long it would take to wear out your new tires with that much camber.
Thanks.

Ok couple of things...yes his car is a daily driver and the camber wear hasnt been bad. He couldnt run the cuscos because the way his bag set up is it wouldnt have worked. This set up was ideal cost wise and only option really.

I dont know about camber bolts....They seem to me to make your front shocks double jointed in a way. Your shock is positioned a certain way and then the boly will camber it at the bottoom of the shock, making in double jointed. If you dont get what Im saying, here's a pic.



With a cusco camber plate your cambering it at the perch making it not double jointed. Also Cusco Camber plates increase sterring response and performance. Also its a pillow ball uppermount.

Here are some pics from my set up.
-4 Degrees in the rear


-3 Degrees in the front
