    Ridetech front end and camber adjust mod

    Hey guys,
    I am installing ridetech coil-overs for the front
    end on my 03 Marauder.
    With the kit came hardware to increase the ( positive?)
    camber adjustment. This is done by widening the
    hole that the camber adjust eccentric bolt passes through.
    I was wondering if anyone could tell me why the install
    of the ridetech coil-overs drives the need to increase camber
    adust.
    thanks

    When you lower the car there isn’t enough adjustment in the factory bolt. The camber kit easily puts everything into check. Super simple to oval out the hole with a die grinder bit.

    The coilovers lower the car from stock..as justbob said, need them or you will wear out the inside edge of your tires pretty quickly

    Very Good and I understand. I've got the passenger side grinded out, front and back. SPC has a nice video...it has the oval extended toward the center of the car in order to give more positive adjustment room (this is what I think the narrator in the video says). Is it true that the camber adjustment needed after the coil overs are in is the positive direction?
    Thank you gentlemen. Much appreciated.

    Just google “carfixers alignment specs” and have them follow it.

    Make sure you torque that bolt properly as well.
