When you rebuild your front end, this is not what you want to see. Note the excessive positive camber. Something is very wrong. Since we have had two clients call with this issue that past month, I wanted to share these photos to help future builders avoid the same frustration.
Notice the shock arm to trunnion connection above, circled in red. When it’s 180 degrees out of phase, you end up with extreme positive camber and steering arms that won’t reach. Below the issue is corrected with the trunnions on the right way round.
Note the threads showing next to the tie rod end in both photos. When the camber is this far off, the tie rods are almost completely unscrewed from the steering rack ends…
Doing a disk brake conversion? These photos will help. And you can buy our disk conversion kit by clicking here. You can also see our adjustable camber control arms in these photos… they help add negative camber for better performance, but of course you have to start with the correct geometry as shown here. The silver shims on the lower control arm change the camber as needed.
