    Fitting my Weitec Hicon GT's soon, might want a slight bit of camber on the rear wheels

    I'm 99% sure the Weitecs dont have camber adjustment, so how do i go about this? Just camber shims?

    You cannot adjust the camber on the A3's so you would have to use shims IMO but personally, I wouldn't - you will go through tyres! 19" tyres are not cheap!

    Very true Boydie, but camber is worth it :p

    the rear camber on the 8p is factory adjustable - there is an eccentric bolt arrangement - the factory settings is 1.5deg negative camber,


    thats probably a bit too much really - if you reduce it the top of the wheel moves out to fill the arch more.

    its the front end that doesnt have any camber adjustment unless you fit the fwd tt bottom arms and ball joints, then you get between 1.5 and 2.5 negative camber approx

    Smudge, I got mine done at a STS tyre pro garage. They had the full laser alignment kit for tracking,camber etc.

    They adjusted the rear for me. I'm sure it was about £30.

    Get your ass to a garage and let them worry about how to adjust the rear :)

    As stated previous, only the rear is adjustable. They tweaked mine by 0.5 degrees :)

    the just unlock the lockiing bolt and rotate the adjusting bolt when its attached to the alignment machine - there is one for camber and one for toe

    If i put up a picture can you mark these adjusting bolts, I have a 2007 sportback and the wheels seem to be all over the place. My local garage said this (camber and toe) couldn't be adjusted on a front wheel drive car.
