Thanks Mark, That's how I'm leaning. I guess shims could have been added during a previous alignment. But why, when it is so much easier to adjust camber with lower adjuster?Thank you, Jim

Jim, when I did my em front end, I put all the shims back and used that as a starting point. Just know that if you replaced all the bushings and ball joints, that adjustment may no longer be accurate if an adjustment was done in the past.

Hello, I am rebuilding a lm front suspension.Upon dis assembly of the drivers side upper a arm, I found two shims between cross member and bushing shaft.Both were the same thickness. I think these were installed at the factory since front end has not been in a car since the early 70's.My guess is they were used to adjust for some manufacturing tolerance for camber.Question, should I re assemble with shims or, rely on lower arm adjustment only to adjust camber?Thanks in advance,Jim CuneoNorcal Corsa
