Default Camber / roll center

at first - sorry for my English (i saw some guys are really sensitive about it)

I got few problems with my beast.
After i did install the powerflex and raised a car a bit, my max camber is -1.5 in rear and same in front. (only in one side) I could do a bigger camber in the other. I did got a contact last year to drivers side front wheel.
But all problems is on the passenger side cambers.. The control arms doesn't look like they've got bent or something like that...

any ideas what to do to have at least -3 camber all around? is there custom upper control arms is the only solution?

maybe miata's has very weak/soft metal around the control arms fixing points?

I am running on 16x9 et10

Also any ideas how to lower the roll center?
the problem is that when i lowered my car a bit, my front lower control arms, drag links, are not in horizontal position. That means a swaybar is not working properly.

I wouldn't be surprised if you bent the unibody.

<p>you raised the car. that could be&nbsp;most of the reason you cant have all the cambers.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>the fix for the sway bar is adjustable end links, not to&nbsp;lift the car</p>

My guess is that you have bent the control arms and/or the subframes. Miata's were not built to take a lot of impact on the control arms. I've torn a few part that had minor contact only to find arms and subframes bent.
