Front Camber

Who's got 1.5 deg (or more) negative camber at the front of their 914.?...without going to camber plates.
How did you do it?
How's about a pic.

Had mine done last week and ended up with 1.44 at front on a stock setup. Not quite 1.5 but pretty close.

From what I've seen, 1.4 to 1.5 negative is about the most you can get without using the camber plates or replacing the top of strut mounts. I think it has to do with the available area underneath where the strut attaches to the sheetmetal.

Thumbs up re: front camber

I was able to get more than two degrees.

Here's how: remove the top adjuster bracket. Take out the rubber insert. With a hole saw, carefully cut out the center. Open up the hole, so the center can be TIG welded in an offset position. Replace the rubber insert with a Camberball or other spherical assembly. Eliminate the metal sleeve that protects the shock shaft. Reassemble.
Additionally it may be necessary to remove a small amount of material from the inner edge of the chassis opening, where the adjuster plate comes through, to achieve maximum negative camber.

The alternative is to bandsaw away the inner edge of the adjuster bracket, and slot the hell out of the bolt holes in the chassis.
