heyy happy new year did you figure out your camber?? what are your tire rules can you have different size tires?? how much stagger do you have accross the front of the car i used to figure it out with tire tape or a stagger gauge . my car ran great with 8 inches accross the front but we didnt have a tire rule other than no bigger than a 205 15 so from usiing my guage or tire tape the right front tire measured 78 the right rear measured 76 left rear measured 74 left front worked best with a 69 but would be ok with a measured 71/ 72 its not the size of the tire its the measured size. i used to see lots of guys with a 14 on the left and 15 on the right but when measured sometimes the 14 would be bigger so they were backwards. the other thing i did was extended my control arm 1 inch ground it nice painted it and put it in water for a week lol. worked great till someone noticed my camber gain lol. i hope you had a great season. sorry this is a little late

The reason I have 6 degrees on the LF right now is mainly so I have more adjustment later if I need it. We are allowed to modify our right fronts to gain up to 5 degrees but who's gonna notice 6? LoL.. I run a High Banked 3/8 dirt track and over the winter they have added even more banking to our track so I'm thinking I'm gonna need as much camber in the right front as I can get. I'm just scratching my head on as to why I have done the same thing to both sides of the car and I'm getting more camber on the left than I am the right. It just boggles my mind because it seems regardless of what I do it doesn't change.

to help- your right side use a new strut leaving the left old it will squat in the corners and pull you around if you have new front springs again put a used one on the left. do your rules allow you to run different size tires? using a stagger gauge i would run a 77-79 rt ft and the smallest i can get on the left front. this helps your camber as well my biggest suggestion is to get your car to squat in the corners youll be able to go in hard and come out under control.... oval pavement trick
