PostSubject: Shortening OEM rear camber arm things..   Thu 13 Oct 2011, 11:44 pm

would anyone object to me chopping and shortening my current standard rear camber arm things? is theres anything highly stupid/dangerous in doing so?
it'll be done properly so they're strong etc, im just on a poverty driven mindset atm!
I was gonna just buy some camber arms but for 60+ pound id rather not if i don't have to..
I've never heard of anyone ever doing it but i cant see why it'd be a problem if done good.

Wont be shorten them majorly, my wheels currently sit flush'ish with the arch, unrolled, so we're talking maybe an inch? not too sure but not that much i wouldnt of thought.

not really.....
I was obviously joking up there ^
I wouldn't do it if I knew it wasn't going to be safe, im not an idiot. Hence why i'm asking on here before I do it, and even when I do i'll make sure its safe, I've got two spare arms anyway if i'm not happy with the strength and durability of them when they're done, its worth a try.. there's no reason why it wont work as far as i can see, enlighten me if i'm wrong...

i was going to space them out where they mount to the car (washers and longer bolts) to correct my camber when i slammed my ek, which would of been safe obviously.

but you want to shorten them? if you can explain how your going to 'shorten' them, i'd like the hear it. if you have'nt got enough camber already, go lower Razz

Im sure the arm does go shorter when you dial in more negative camber? as thats what happened with my eibach ones when i maxed them out (negative wise).

Because my wheels arent going to tuck from just lowering, and if i dont have to fork out for camber arms id rather not thats all Razz.

Just a little experiment i thinks worth a try. as i said i wont need to shorten them by much for them to tuck. if it don't work/isnt safe i'll just put on the spare arms ive got, I'll get pics up when i do it Smile
