Re: New Swift uprights - Camber issue

OK so coilovers went in today. Set the camber tops to Max camber (which should be more than enough). The front wheels still have 1 degree of positive camber... I'm stumped as apparently no one else has this issue?? Next step is to try camber bolts as well. Can anyone shed any light on this problem?
