    Can't gain any camber on front passenger side??

    Got my s14 in the road now and it has coilovers with adjustable topmounts set to max neg camber yet the passages side give zero camber and the drivers around 3deg.

    What's up with this I'm boggled

    Sorry this is the best picture I have at to moment


    Only adjustable arms at the moment are tension rods.
    I don't know what it is as the drivers side adjusts fine.

    Will check the lower arms not bent.
    My toe is out so will be doing that next week.

    Are the camber bolts worth fitting. Says they gain 1.75'

    I'm also thinking about fitting some hsd monopros

    There's some adjustment between the upright and coil over. I'd also check your lower arms, bushes, ball joints.

    First off I'd measure both lower arms to make sure they are the same size.

    Yeah something isn't right there as you should be seeing a fair bit or neg camber with the way it's set

    Caster will be set unevenly I expect (it also affects the amount of camber)
