i thought the springs set the camber which should be zero camber, ( had to do that few weeks ago by cutting springs down , yes was nervous but all panned out ok,.) phew.. and also had to do my own alighnment  which should also i believe be zero toe in or out.... all runs true for me now .. cheers skippy

had that checked an only bit bent was where was shimmed ,.. all else checked out ok i was led to believe..  ::) . scored the lwb front end ,
 in adelaide but on closer inspection  realised it also had copped  :o a belt  :o somewhere down the track, so just used springs out of it ,..    had a wheel align done in adelaide before left for north , asian guy muttered something about "camber".. but i didnt understand him, guess i do now lol ...  see if i can get old ones sent from sa if chop isnt " to my advantage" , just a thought, if they  did go over a tad ,i summise i could space them in the wishbone to regain the camber?? ??
