Got my full '05 FSM today, and book 1 section 3 page 17 has what we've been looking for - this is for you Scottbert and all the other autocrossers here... :)

Thanks to all4glh for hosting the image, which was too big to attach. PDF format, so have Acrobat, scanner would only take the big ass book one way so you'll need to rotate the image to view onscreen - but just print it out to avoid pesky protests whe you show up in a stock class with -3* front camber, LOL. :)

I got them beat up and well used but not trashed for $60 shipped from a guy on ss.net. They're hard as **** to find, since most dealers threw them away when everything went online (and the much needed page somehow went away). Maybe there's a source for them out there that I don't know of. :shrug:

Besides - I have them, so you don't need them. :)

So how much adjustment is possible after filing the hole to the stamped ring?

Varies a little car to car, but between -2.5 and -3.1 degrees. And that is a LOT more than you're going to need (with heavy autocross use I get roughly even tire temps at -2.5*, stock suspension with Koni Yellows).

Why isn't this factory? A Dod.ge Car.avan has this, with a nice slotted hole and an eccentric nut/bolt so the adjustment isn't just a 'friction fit; which will change on the first bump! Mark it so you can re-set the camber any time...
