MGV101 Posted May 10, 2010 Share Posted May 10, 2010 Why does no body in the US or Australia (whiteline) produces an adjustable upper link for camber adjustment? Most of the camber adjustment solution I have seen includes just the adjustable front lower links. These kit works by extending the front lower links which pushes the base of the wheel outwards generating more caber. By doing do, toe will also be effected but it can be corrected by the adjusting bolt on the trailing rear lower link. How much camber you can adjust is limited by the adjusting bolt at the rear link. Recently whiteline had come out with a new kit with replaces both the lower links with an adjustable version which made more sense as you now extend both lower links at the same time without having to mess with the toe adjustment bolt. However, by adjusting camber at the base of the wheel, you are still going to change the wheel base. If adjustment is made using the upper link, impact on the wheel base will be minimized as you are just moving the top of the wheel and you only need to adjust the length of a single link making adjustment much easier. So why does no body make such a kit? I have actually found an adjustable upper link from a Taiwan manufacturer but is a little hesitant getting a set due to the fact that no one else is making one. Are there some inherent flaws on adjusting camber via the upper link? Is there a reason why no one else is making one? Here is the adjustable upper link that I have found: http://www.hardrace.com/products.asp?strClass1=9&strClass2=66&strClass3=122 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
