you can get a machine shop to make some eccentric bushings for the upper arm , and then fine tune with the lowers to get more camber.

^^They're pretty horrible structurally though - like the honda ones.

Was contemplating making a set with sphericals rather than rod-ends inboard, a shimmed one outboard, then using various thickness reducer bushes to play with castor - a FD shortcoming. You'd preferably have shims for the steering arms somehow too, to avoid dicking around with toe every time.

Wasn't this a stock as a rock class?
