    Been stupid and only realised

    I have the forge rear tie arms only my Techy put them on the wrong way "i.e. on the bottom not the top" in his defense he's not an after market parts guy.

    I don't have the OEM ones anymore.

    Can I swap the top with the bottom? are they the same size?

    I think Woody might be talking about the Forge adjustables...

    ohh right

    but when on the bottom i can't get the camber right, the bottom of the wheels stick out. "uneven tyre wear".

    you can really see the angle on the wheels. i have adjusted as far as it goes.

    i think they need to be swaped, so i can push the top of the wheel out not pull the bottom in.

    Both standard arms are the same, it is wiser putting them on the top link anyway as less stress on the driveshafts...
    How much adjustment to forge give? mine are about 40mm either way.....

    im sure my top and bottom arms were slightly different but I had to fit the adjustable arms to the bottom to get the tracking settings to come in line
