you dont need any camber or toe adjusters for the rear..... you can shim out the upper control arm with washers and the front of the trailing arm is adjustable from the factory, granted there are tolerances but if your not more than 3in lower than stock the rear should be totally adjustable from the factory. how modified is your suspesion?

its in the front that the camber is not adjustable from the factory.

The factory toe adjuster bushings always sieze up though. I guess I don't NEED them, but I do want them. The car never really breaks down so I've got to keep busy somehow! The toe adjusters on my car are pretty much stuck. Last alignment I did was all in the green, but I had to say every bad word in the book to get it to line up. I want it to go nice and smooth. I never thought about using washers to change the camber - I'll give that a shot next time it's on the alignment rack. The suspension is slightly lowered, but not much. I've never measured, but I've got Tokico HPs and Tokico lowering springs ment for a four door. I'd guess I'm an inch lower than stock. Like I said, i don't really need them but now I've got the free time to get all nerdy about little stuff.

Hey, you guys from NJ - I've wondered this for a while: how come you can't pump yor own gas there? I've never spent much time in the Garden state but I've been through once or twice.

It's illegal. I think it's health/environment/theft/jobs that has caused such a thing.

I've heard it has more to do with jobs/economy.
