So as a few of you know I've lowered my 2i now which looks pretty smart

........BUT...............


My bloodywheels are sitting inwards and it eating my tyres !!

I've been to a few garges today and they all say the same thing that I need camber adjuster
Or something like that lol

Apparently they sit in the top mounts and look offset so it pulls the wheels inwards
one fella even said that mk1 xr2's have these adjusters standard so would I be able to take a set off of a mk1 ?? And fit my mk3 ??

camber adjustable bottom wishbones is the general way to go

the mounts on MK1 fiestas are totally different to a mk3. iirc the top part is held on with a 2 bolt plate... im pretty sure it is. however to make the top mount adjustable on a mk 3 or a 3.5 you'll need to cut the top of the strut off..have some plates machined and weld them on.(see shot below) this gives rise to another problem..which is that to run them youll need coilovers as the std strut and spring is too fat to have clearance i anything other than the central postion.

camber adjustable wishbones are a cheaper and easier option definately.

hope that helps slightly.
