DIY camber adjustment (new method)
I know there are a lot of methods out there for doing this, but I thought of something and wanted to see if anyone knowledgeable would chime in...
My thought was that the stock camber bolts on the WRX (atleast on my 05) have little notches on the flange of the bolt, presumably to be able to keep track of the bolt's position while adjusting camber, and these, along with a simple bubble level, could be used to set a fairly accurate camber.
Here's my thought.....first, loosen the camber bolt and the one below it. Next, lay the level vertically along the spokes of your wheel, or the rim on the inside of the wheel if the level is the perfect length. Then turn the camber bolt until you get the bubble perfectly in the center. This should put your wheel at 0 camber, right?
Here's the part I'm wondering about....if there was someone out there that happened to know if each groove on the camber bolt corresponds to some degree of camber (say 1 notch equalls 1 degree), then it would be simple to set camber. If 1 notch DID equal 1 degree (I have no idea if this is true, but probably not) then you would be able to level the wheel to 0 camber and then turn your camber bolt by 2 grooves (for example) in the appropriate direction and voila! you have 2 degrees of negative camber.
This seems easier than the other methods I've read about, so please let me know if there are any serious flaws in my thinking. And if anyone did happen to know whether the grooves in the camber bolt corresponded to some increment of adjustment that would be great.
Just throwing it out there. Thanks.
