Rear ride height adjustment, camber, toe help.

I am trying to figure out how to adjust the rear ride height, camber and toe. I now (proudly) own the P221 tool and have a camber gauge coming in the mail. I also made my own toe gauge. There are too many bolts back there and I am not sure which ones to loosen/rotate and in which order. Anyone have a picture or know where one is that can give me an idea how to make adjustments. Thanks.

Just out of curiosity, does it matter if the tank is full or empty?

Got more information for you on suspensions . See attached link.

The weight of a gallon of gas ranges from 5.8 to 6.5 lbs/gal. If you consider the tank capacity of 14 gallons, the weight ranges from 84 lbs to 91 lbs. I don't think that will make a difference. If you are worried about it, I would go with a 1/2 tank.

You should get the car realigned after you make your modifications.
