I just lowered my car with H&Rs,Fe3's and whiteline poly bushings. I just got alignment and my rear wheels have 1.3 and 1.7 camber. Everything else seems to be in order. I noticed yesterday on the pedders website that the bushings need to be rest/timed before alignment.. Is this a MUST? and also do you think that 1.3 and 1.7 neg camber is to much?

Springs need to be aligned with the strut marks, (they did on my Pedders bits, not sure about the FE3).

1.3 front, 1.7 rear camber? I would think that's too much on the rear, or not enough on the front.

And it also depends if your running a square or staggered set-up.

Pedders suggests with a staggered set-up to run 1/2 to 3/4 of the front camber on the rear. I'm running 1.2 front, 0.6 rear....maxed out stock settings with front camber bolts.

I am running a staggered setup, The front is higher than the rear wheels. The only bushing I replaced was the strut bushing and bearing. everything else is stock. the car feels great and all 4 wheels have good toe. The only thing that was out is the Camber for the rear wheels, There wasnt much adjustment to get it lower, would i need a alignment kit?

Left rear was 1.7 and right rear was 1.3. In the front both wheels are .3

I the front struts are timed perfectly with the strut marks

As far as i know, Pedders are the only ones with the rear replacement bolts.
I believe the Camaro and G8 use the same, but may want to double check me.

The positioning of the eccentric to the bolt double the range of adjustment from 1 degree with the OE eccentric bolt to 2 degrees with the Pedders eccentric bolt. Pedders rear camber bolts are direct replacements of the factory eccentrics. On the alignment rack remove the OE eccentric bolt and replace it with the Pedders eccentric bolt.



If the technician is not familiar with the Camaro IRS he may not understand that the toe and camber adjustments work against each other. When setting rear camber the toe eccentric should be set to a neutral position i.e. the eccentric is not touching the 'fences'. Set the camber and then adjust the toe. Fine tune camber and toe until the desired specifications are reached
