Post Front & Rear Camber
Hi,
Please can anyone advise as to how to achieve negative camber on my front wheels?
If anything I have slightly positive camber!
Thanks!
Ken

Hi Ken the traditional way was to cut the bottom arm and re-weld it back together after extending 1/4"
You can now buy adjustable bottom arms, MiniSpares do nice ones which I bought and fabricated copies to have similar front and rear.
pos camber will make your front end very unfriendly!!

Hi John,
Thanks very much for that. I’ll get onto Minispares for sure for the adjustable type.
Whilst I have your kind attention, I now have a problem today with the rear custom wishbone!
The rubbers have failed in the single end of the wishbone where it attaches to the subframe!
Damn! Are these standard or special to GTM?
Really appreciate all of this advice!
Cheers
Ken

I think they were an off the shelf Silentbloc bush, but at my age memory is not so good.
I modified, but ended up not using my set of GTM A frame arms, by using Minispares threaded ends off their neg camber adjustable bottom arms, this would have given me camber adjust on the A frame arms.
I ended up using adjustable Minispares copies and a locking steering arm, giving neg adjust plus toe in adjust.

Thanks very much John. I’ll try and track those bushes down.
So although I’ve just got my plates, I’ve now gone backwards and off the road again! Doh!

Just think Ken instead of scaring the pants off you and being all over the place, next drive may be enjoyable :lol:

Just a thought, it may be worth looking for a PU bush of the same size :wink:

You can get the bushes from Derek Hambly, Austin A55 I think, I did a adjustable wishbone with solid
mounted carrier, I don't like the "bearing" version, scary!

Hi John & Grizzler!
Thanks very much for that. I do agree re the bearing version bring scary!
Hopefully, new bushes will give me a more confident ride!
Thanks again for your help
Ken :)
