INSTALLATION OF THE STREET PREPARED CAMBER PLATES IS RELITIVELY STRAIGHT FORWARD. IF THE SHOCKS YOU ARE USING HAVE A SHOULDER LARGER THAN 5/8" DIAMETER, YOU'LL NEED TO TURN THEM TO FIT THE SPHERICAL BEARING. IF THE SHOULDER IS SMALLER THAN 5/8" DIAMETER, DPracing CAN PROVIDE THE APPROPRIATE ADAPTER BUSHING WHEN YOU ORDER THE CAMBER PLATE KIT.
1) Remove the strut from the tower and install the threaded collar, spring, and shock you will be using.
2) We generally ship the camber plate assembly with everything installed just as it will go into the car. The front will have the needle thrust bearing and washers installed dry. You wil want to grease these before final installation in the car. Because there is no need for the rear strut to turn, there is no needle bearing, and no need to grease them.
3) Once your shocks have the correct shoulder, the camber plate can be installed as an assembly onto the shock. Slide the spherical bearing over the shock shaft, install the high angle washer or bearing adapter, install the jam nuts and tighten.
4) Raise the strut assembly into the tower. Line up the holes and place a socket head cap screw, with a flat washer into the desired hole in the slider. Place another socket head cap screw into the opposite side hole and tighten.
5) Repeat the above process on the other side of the car, and if you are doing both front and rear, do the opposite end of the car.
6) Once the installation is complete and everything else related to the alignment is done, the camber can be set. To make it easier to move, this is best done with no load on the suspension and please no hammers! Loosen both socket head cap screws, remove one, move the slider to line up the desired hole, and reinsert, but don't tighten, the screw. Repeat for the other screw, then tighten the screws and recheck the camber settings.
