INSTALLATION OF THE CENTERED 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) Loosen the (3) bolts holding the stock isolator into the car and remove the strut assembly from the tower.
2) Place one of the mounting plates into the tower as shown in the diagram below. Utilizing (3) of the flat head screws provided, bolt it in place. Note: You may want to check for interferance with slider screws at this time. If you are going to run a large amount of negative camber, you will need to remove some of the raised sheet metal in the center of the tower.
3) Next install the spring perch with the thrust washers and bearing (refer to the drawing above.) onto the spring on the strut.
4) Place the slider onto the shock, install the high angle washer, and jam nuts.
5) Carefully line up the studs in the slider with the slots in the mounting plate. Lift the strut assembly so the studs go through the plate and place the heavy duty hardened flat washer and nut onto the studs. Tighten the nuts to keep the strut from moving in the tower until you are ready to set the alignment.
6) Repeat the above process on the other side of the car.
7) 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 the two nuts and move the slider to the desired location. Then tighten the nuts and recheck the camber settings.
Note: DO NOT use an impact on these bolts. The studs are knurled and pressed into the slider, and using an impact may strip the hole making it impossible to tighten the nuts.
