This is the Link that i pretty much followed and read over: http://www.spcperformance.com/PROD_DIR/PERF_TECH_DIR/PROJCAR1/SPCPerf_PROJCAR1E.html

It's pretty much common sense, there's not too much to this DIY but i'm sure it could be useful to some.

DIY Rear Camber Kit Install

Difficulty: 1 out of 10 (1 being the easiest)

Time required: About an hour

Hardware required: None, it's all included in the kit

Purpose of this product:
To adjust the camber of your wheels.

Tools Required:

- 19mm Socket (For lugnuts)
- 17mm Socket/Socket Wrench
- 17mm Wrench (If you'd prefer that)



The Product:



The Install:


1. Loosen your Lugnuts and take off your wheels:



2. Take your 17mm Wrench and loosen the 3 bolts on the OEM camber and remove the camber:









3. Take your OEM camber kit and compare it to your Adjustable camber kit and resize the adjustable one to the same length as your OEM one. You can go ahead and toy with it until you get your wheels aligned to your liking.

Finished product:



**After you're done installing i highly suggest you take it in for an alignment**

I don't even remember, i bought this a year ago and finally got off my ass to do it... I think they run about $80-$100 for the rear and $20-$30 for the fronts.

Its pretty good, you left out a couple steps.. lol

Before you can take the wheel off you need to jack the car up.
And on the wheel side of the OEM camber, the Nut is welded on to the bar. So you need to loosen from the non welded side.

Stock: Welded on nut.




Hardware Req: New #12 bolt and matching nut.



just a note, about hardware. the spc camber kit didnt have a welded on nut like the stockers. you either have to take the bolt to the hardware store (12x1.25) and find a matching nut. or buy a seperate bolt and nut. which is what he/we had to do. as you can see in the pics that nut and bolt is brand new shiny silver. he used locktite blue (non perm) for it, and im sure its well past the 43 lb/ft requirement. it shouldnt move. just remember if you do have to buy a nut/bolt for it thats its a #12 in size and just to get matching thread pitch. that is all.

well in that case, it prob did. his kit did sit around for a good year. so he might have lost them.

if it does come with nec hardware lol, dont mind my post. if it doesnt, all you need is #12 size bolt and matching thread pitch nut.

you might want to add that the upper camber arms have 2 different shaped holes where it bolts on to the body of the car where the bushing is. one is a oval and one is a circle, the oval hole on the arm has to be bolted on closest to the front of the car first then the circle facing the rear of the car last.

Well i just checked my ingalls kit that i have only opened once until today and mine has the nut and washer but no bolt. Also are you suppose to reuse the factory bolts where the camber arm bolt to the body of the car?So i dont know what that is about unless that is how the kit comes.
