Hi all,

Iv recently put my rear wheels on 1.5 negative camber using camber shims. However as we all know these cant be used for the front...

Any ideas or experience in how to get the front wheels on camber?

Cheers
Andy

Why would you want more camber? It will just wear the inner edges of the tyres down and make the car handle worse in the wet.

If you really want to do it, take the ball joints out of the lower arms and file out the holes towards the edge of the arm, and/or ball joint.

For the rear camber i bought some Eibach Alignment shims off a company called venom.. They were about £20 i think. Got them ages ago
