What kind of negative camber are you fox MM k-member guys seeing?

Hey guys, curious to see what you are all seeing for max camber? I slotted the holes on the strut tower... only seeing ~ 1.1 degrees on the passenger side. K-member has been checked to make sure it is square.

I can get -3 on one side and a little more than that on the other, MM fox K-member, standard-offset fox-lengh A-arms, '96 spindles and Koni Yellows. I can dial it back to something less than 1 degree if need be.

Have you slotted the holes in the damper? Also check degree on the spindle. With weight on the spindle(lifting up), you can increase negative camber. That is if you haven't checked this already.

I'm curious about this as well. We also need to get the car on a truly flat surface ... I'm thinking my Longacre tool is reading slightly askew even though I zeroed it out on the back wheels (respective to the side I was measuring).

-2.3' both sides, with a little bit more left on the camber plates. Holes are not elongated on the strut tower, and this is with MM k-member, fox control arms in the lower holes, 96+ spindles, HD Bilsteins, and MM C/C plates.

-6.2 on the drivers side and -6.5 on the Pass side



Sn95 offset A-arms, slotted strut towers, CC plates and crash bolts.

Yes I know it is not ideal but I wanted to see how it drove at the max. I will probably be dropping it down to -3.5 and do more testing from there. But man does it turn in like crazy.

looks almost comical! The longer SN95 arms surely make a difference, plus the crash bolts.

Same setup as mine, except Bilstiens. I am getting right around -3.5° max. I have it set to -1.5° for the street.

Strut/spindle bolts with an eccentric build in that allows axial misalignment between the strut holes and spindle holes. Also called "camber bolts", but known as "crash bolts" because body shops use them to get alignment back when the chassis is still tweaked.

Increasing another -.2 to my current -3.1, which still has rollover issues...

I've seen several cars with -0.3 or even more on the rear wheels, even though it is a solid axle. This could be skewing your reading. Still yoou are off by more than 3 tenths, so the answer probably lies elsewhere.
