Nice posts, Brian i still have that set of eibach bolts, they should work on the xB right? (i'm debating about putting on the tanabe's)

If i just put my wheels on for now i shouldn't need to use the bolts right? The stock settings should still be there? Thx

Thanks Scifly, I can always count on a detailed and understandable explanation from you. If I do it, it would be for handling as well.

Thanks! I'm not more than a part-time conductor here.
We need more experienced inputs than come from noob- myself.
Especially want tips from practical men like Brian Sorenson and all others.

am out of facts at the moment....so....
Fun now.
See, all instruction and no play makes for a dull thread.










There are good ways and there are bad ways to achieve negative camber


My photo, my neighbor. My neighbor HAD a ficus tree before last month. Tons of wood crushed down on his three cars

Yes, he got his cars all fixed up pronto. This was from the tropical storm we got in Miami before Katrina.
His tree was big news then. It was covered on all the local media.
A month later, after Katrina, you could see this scene five hundred times-over in Coral Gables and Coconut Grove.

Katrina drifted on to the Big Easy. And all this tree flack we had here becomes -like nothing-.

The homeowner lives one block up my street. In context of what it was/is, it's OK to laugh.
No one got hurt.... almost no one... but for one tree.


help! I've fallen and can't get up! (Sci standing far right)

thanks SF, i understand about camber and all, just going the other way. i used camber bolts before and they work great, but again going the other way, take a look.

so this is a bit of 'reverse' learning for me. again, thanks.

Nice ride ruggedized but I'm wading though popups and slow page loads from webshots. Not seeing what you want to show.

1,256 it would help me if you post your salient picture right there. You can use imagshack.us very easy for hosting, OR scionlife's image gallery or just use the IMG button in your comp. box after highlighting the actual location of your picture.

cheers,

Incredible!



I am not disinterested in these Cuscos, except that for some perverse reason (probably cost) they are made with aluminum instead of steel plates.

For this reason I prefer the super-bulletproof security of the OEM rubber bushed ball bearing plates.

Steel here is what makes me comfortable.
I can get plenty of neg. camber by dropping as I have already. More, if wanted, I can get from the camber bolts seen on prior page.

Im wondering if there is a ratio of toe out vs neg degrees of camber. Im in proccess of building up my suspension currently (airbags/camberplates/shims) And want to make sure i compensate correctly. Have you found any info on exactly how much to compensate? Ty for a VERY informative post. -Mikey

how much rear camber does the OTG spacers give, also how much do they space it out compared to the non camber spacer (9.5mm)? thanks.
