Re: Upper a-arms for lowered jeeps

the shocks will not make a difference because the spring perch is in the same place on both thus lowering the vehichles the same.

Hahaha! i have no print out... i cambered the jeep myself!

The best camber to have even wear through out the wheel is to have zero camber. I got a leveler, attached it to a tall piece of steel rod, and placed it parallel to the jeep rim, Then i adjusted the wheel camber so that the wheel be at 90 degrees vertical to the ground. now, i have a ZERO camber. both front rims are perfectly parallel to each other.. i have zero wear issues, i have over 1000 miles on it and it drives great. thats my story

Re: Upper a-arms for lowered jeeps

hamze i have 10,000 miles on srt8 eibach springs. let me know how your tires are later down the rode. i also took a 4ft. level placed it on the face of the wheel torward the bottom of the tire.then from the top of the wheel pulled a measurement to the level when it was in bubble and was off 1/4" with the camber adjustments maxed out.also the upper ball joint is at an extreme angle just sitting still.
