Ok guys,

This is something I have noted since my new torsion bars. My rear camber is a little too aggressive on the passenger side of the car. At least 8 degrees...

Problem is I can't adjust it any more. What would solve this problem?

- Jon

That's WAY out of the normal range. How are you measuring - known level surface, w/ bubble gauge? Alignment rack?

Camber will be affected by height setting, as well as toe, in the rear.

If these aren't far off, you may have a bent trailing arm.

Good luck...

you can't change camber without affecting toe, peter posted some pictures on a camber box modification. It involves mounting the torsion bar in a box arrangement with shims to allow height adjustment.
This allows independent adjustment of the camber without affecting toe in/out. Borrowed from the 935 racers.
would require a bit of effort to set up but takes just minutes to adjust.
my setup is the same i think, as i have sacrificied toe in for the right camber at the moment, something i need to get sorted out soon.
Peter posted a link for an article i sent him, do a search on camber box.
