    hey uhh well today was a total let down. my dad and i worked on the cc plates alll day today! we didnt manage to finish either side because of the cc plates. we were pretty confused at the point where you had to make it positive or negative camber and how tall to make the strut shaft stick above the shock tower.. if im using sportline springs (claimed 2" drop up front) do we need to make the strut shaft 2" higher than stock? because that is a hugeeeee difference! and is it 2" from the shock tower or 2 inches from the top of the bearing plate?

    after lookin at these instruction right now, it looks like its a little easier than what it was. maybe because we were frustrated? pretty hot out today too idk. someone please help though! my car is sittin tonight and tomorrow so i dont get to drive her and i want it good to go tomorrow!

    well i got some mm c/c plates i need to put on my stang too which i will pry do next weekend. The previous owner put on bbk gripp springs and i noticed the camber was off and when i replaced the old tires you could definately see that it was not right. I am not completely sure of how to do it as i havent tried but according to my instructions you need to measure how it is stock by laying a straight edge across the fender and measure down to the top of the strut shaft then when you put it all together you put the spacers so it is 2" higher, in your case, than it was. Then after its all buttoned up get it to an alignment shop asap.

    Ya, sometimes you get burned out & gotta walk away and think about something else for a while,
    when you come back, it usually lines up.
