GF8 Front Camber
 
I’m looking to upgrade a few suspension components in my GF8. I’m planning on purchasing BC Coilovers, Whiteline arms in the rear, and a few other things. However, I’ve done the research and I just can’t find a reliable way to adjust your front camber without using a bolt or camber plates. Is that the only way? The coilovers I’m currently running have adjustable camber plates for the front, however they don’t do much. Anyone know any secrets? Thanks.

How much camber adjustment are you looking for? What do the current camber plates allow?

It’s on Raceland BC Ultimo Coilovers currently, which I never got properly aligned (dumb decision). But I’m guessing around -2 degrees. I was hoping to go for around 5-6.

You want to run +/- Six degrees of camber? Why? Are you dragging frame?

Not dragging frame, but yes it'll be low. All I got from that thread is that the only way to adjust camber is a bolt and that I need to get it aligned.

That's a different direction than I'm going with my car so I don't know what you'd be looking for exactly if you really want more than about 2.5* of front camber. I've definitely seen an assortment of adjustable camber plates on ebay. Really have no idea about quality, but they're cheap and you might be able to find one that gives you a bit more than your current setup.


The other thought I had is a lot more work, time and money: You could look at widening the track width with different lower arms in the front and adjustable lateral links in the rear. That's really not a quick bolt on thing though. You may need to find longer axles and/or get custom axles made. Sway bar endlink mounts may be affected, but if you want more camber than adjustable camber plates can supply you with, that might be a direction worth investigating.

Thanks for the insight man. I’ve talked to a few gf8 owners that have said pretty much the same thing, find a good fabricator. I’m just a little iffy on the eBay plates.

Iffy on eBay Camber plates but want to run 6 degrees Camber?
Adjust the stock Camber bolts to maximum then the same for the BC's tops you can probably get about 5 degrees from that
