Camber

Arnold

You can just make out mine in these photos and should see that they differ a lot but the camber as measured by laser alignment is the same;





There's fitting instructions that come with the meisters showing which way round the plates should be and I'm sure it shows them with the socket head cap screws sitting towards the rear the way you have them but you should check that - if you still have the instructions!
Thanks for that. I don't think I have the instructions anymore :(

I can't see very clearly on the picture, but i have a feeling that the top mount is installed incorrectly.

If you look at Arnold car, you can see the 2 camber adjustment bolt are further back toward the firewall.
Where Wallace one are further front.
It could just be the angle of the picture, but I'll check that out first.

If it is incorrect, the top mount need to be rotated 180 degrees so it looks like Arnold car, that is the correct installation position.

Duuno if itl help but when i aligned mine i set the camber to -1.7* based on weight etc. and Toe to 0.00 .... Personally it handles a dream! even in the wet on shit tyres it still finds grip!

Yeah I found the original instruction from yourselves and as you say the camber plates should sit with the adjustment bolts to the rear of the car as Arnold has them. Mine are that way too - there's nothing wrong with the way my car handles :D

Mine are set quite differently one side to the other and are definitely fitted the right way round - on one side the socket head screws are fitted on the inner holes at the other side their on the outer. Mine were set up by a company that do alignment for track cars too, so you may be worrying about nothing. :)
Mine are also a few lines different on each side. Car has never been in a wreck. Suppose the chassis may flex over time as the torque is only really planting on the right side.
