What did you do about the set screws, did you enlarge the hole to allow for them to be set.<b>Carmen</b>

simply, did a Dan Law trick....

the one rear bolt....put some loctite medium on it...tightened it barely tight, and then backed it off 1/4 a turn

the two front ones....tightened those down....that way, you don't have to mess up your caster to change camber..

ultimately, cutting/enlarging the hole in the strut tower/but welding a plate in its place would be best...till then...the dan law trick works.

and i do not like that whatsoever. have asked all the 'experts' and they all agree - two tight on one side is asking for trouble. The castor is maxed out anyway - far better to bring the bolt into play and tighten it properly then shove the strut all the way back. i shoved for all it is worth and got 7 degrees on fl and 6.75 on the front left and called it a day. i asked the guy at champion, asked todd, asked carlos, all opinions identical - cut it out or tighten at least one of the 2 on the othewr side - opposing forces going to cause twist and issues. maybe not but that's my 2 cents on the matter. At the forces we push to and the speeds we drive i would not be comfortable any other way. Mine are cut out of course but please reconsider that solution - it is not a good one imo.
