    Default help needed again on rear cambers

    hi guys ive been having problems in my town in getting my rear cambers adjusted, ive managed to prove to them you can do it now on the ecentric bolt, but problem is evey book with the info in says you cant adjust them so there isnt any specifications,

    Is it just a matter of fact they just have to adjust it then keep checking it on the wheel aligner to check, or does someone whos had it done can get hold of any specifications please, im desperate to get this done so i dont wear put me wheels,

    Ive got the specifictions of what they are standard,

    honestly mate its been a mission for me today just to convince them you can do it , im so stressed cause of it nightmare.
    its just weird that in all the books they say its not adjustable, then after i took my car to show a good mechanic i know at vauxhall and even at first he said you cant adjust them , then when i shown him the ecentric bolt with the lines on it he realised you could,

    jeeees ive spent the day teaching mechanics LOL !!!!!!

    i do mine by eye ! there is a point at which there is no movement in the hub at all ! which means its at its most upright ! BINGO ! no tyre scrub ! this is my second vec so its no fluke !! the handling is spot on ! try it !! oh and mark the original positions with typex incase you sell and need to go back to standard !!

    so would this be right, im sorry about the questions im learning my self so i know what to tell them, so would this be right you need to measure from the centre of the wheel to the arch then what ever it is say 330mm then you need just adjust the bolt untill you get the tolorences of what it is at 330mm, if you get what im on about cheers

    i think you will find that at there most upright is going to be where they need to be mate !! its all about tyre wear ! mines 35mm lower than SRI spec and the wheels look as upright as they did before i lowered it !
