Damn camber kits! HELP!

Has anyone ever had this issue with the Ingalls camber kit?



If you don't see the issue... Here's a clearer pic...



The wide spacers are suppose to be on one, and the short spacers on the other. As you can see, I got two left handed short spacers and two right handed wide spacers.

I'm planning on returning this kit. It was only the one kit that had the issue. The other kit is good and on the car.


Anyhow, lemme know if anyone has had this issue...

Yes, Thien and I actually had that problem... what we did was just take them all out from scratch and did it over again until it fit... but the key thing to know is that each bar has ONE silver end and the other has ONE black end...

Btw, the longer pole replaces the one closest to the rear of your car, I believe that is the camber..and the shorter one goes to the one closest to the front of the car, that should be the toe... unless I mixed them up, which is possible ... But Im sure of the order..

This is why Ingalls need to assemble the kits before shipping them out so they know if they're making any mistakes.

I got mine a few days ago and installed with no problems thought.

Unfortunately looks like you'll have to return that one.

Yup that is the case unfortunetly. I e-mailed the ebay company that I bought them though, hopefully they send me one out ASAP!

Damn Ingalls! (Although don't get me wrong... AWESOME PRODUCT!)


BTW, I'm without a car til this kit comes int...

UPDATE!

I called over at Ingalls Engineering and they are taking care of me 100%. Although I am paying for expedited shipping for the shipping of the good parts back to me.

Just wanted to let you guys know, if you need help with this, call Todd over at Ingalls @
1-800-641-9795

They are good people, and will get you all taken care of.

i got a question, do you have to install the camber kit along with the lowering springs or is it optional?

It's required unless you wanna go through like 4 sets of tires a year

You NEED the rears, I was still within specs on the front. Plus, I like a little camber in the front

You are correct. But instead of me having the wide ends on one side and the "not so wide" ends are on the other, I had them mix matched.

If you installed it the way you stated, you are correct. The long bar is closest to the rear, the short bar is closest to the front of the car.

Here are a couple of pics that might help... Im pretty sure when we took all of the screws apart, we had one wide and one short for each side...

>>DRIVER REAR<<


Notice both have ONE black and ONE silver end.

It is confirmed the longer one is the "toe" or the one closest to the back, this is the pic of the camber, which is the one closer to the front.


>>PASSANGER REAR <<

Each arm takes 1 black and 1 silver. But each takes the same size spacers (1 arm with wide spacers and 1 arm with short spacers). I think you're mixing this a bit.

Here is the diagram from the installation manual:

i know this thread is about a year old; however... by looking at the pictures, it looks like there is a total of four bars. the kit i purchased came with two bars. does this mean i need to order it again to get two more bars?

^ I believe one is for camber adjustment and the other is for toe adjustment.

Wow the 7th gen Ingalls camber kits are so much easier to work with compared to the 6th gens'. I'm jealous...

The kit should have come with 4 links, two per side, if it did not then yes you are short a set.

Thread from the dead.

I'll be installing this kit and debating having a shop do it. It looks easy, just don't want my wheels falling off on my way to get an alignment.

Any advice?

Your wheels won't fall out, but you will feel the car wandering all over the road, so just take it slow and have them adjust them correctly, but IMO it's a very easy install to do yourself.

the install is fairly simple. Go to EliteCM.net (sorry V6P members ); they have a really good write up on how to install...

Yes. I suggest using the stock bolts and camber arms (while off the car, of course) to try and match the camber arm lengths. It will still be off just a little. And like Accordian said, you'll car will drift/slide all over the place. After I had mines installed, the tires squealed and the rear end had a slight "fish tail"... take it slow no doubt. After the alignment, should be like butter . GL!!

I did this myself and my cam eccentric bolts were actually seized in the rubber of the stock arms. I ended up getting new bolts from Honda and had to cut the stock ones out. You'll be fine to get to the alignment shop, but as you mentioned and HEcreated487 suggested, definitely try to line up the arms to stock

+1,

Those Effing camber bolts... mine are seized in the bushings too!!! I got the HFP suspension in and did the center lower links, but could not for the life of me do the rears... looks like i'm going to have to cut them off and buy new ones too!!!
