Default Having camber trouble.

I included the link to the miata.net post, basically I can't get the camber in just one wheel on my car to go to in more than -3.4 degrees, while all the others are fine. Car is on Tein Flex, more info in thread.


Should I just order those bushings that were linked in my thread there or perhaps there's an easier solution? Ty..

I'm stuck at 2.7 in the rears with Tein Flex. The bushings look to be the only option.

I couldn't get the rear camber to go less than -2.7 until I raised the ride height 1/4", then I was able to dial in -1.8.

I don't like those bushings. It relies on the camber bolt to keep the offset drilled sleeve from rotating, and if I know one thing about Miata suspensions - the camber bolts are hard to keep tight. The right way to do it, is offset drill the bushing material, install a set/stopper screw with the bushing installed where you want and use a normal "bearing" sleeve. I've used offset drilled bushings like this on more than one race car and they worked fine- NEVER moving. I've used the "wrong" design and could not keep them from rotating.

Here's the correct offset bushing design.
