Hi guys
I´ve got the problem, that the camber on the rear wheels are extreme negative (pic). Measured was in normal standing, without driver 3,8 deg, fully sprung about 6 (!!). Is it correctable anyway?? I only found about 0,5 deg with shims, or do I have to build a new axle??

Thanks
Benny

Hi Benny,
It can be corrected with shims, people have done this ob the Tiger search the Internet, there was a Merkur (non european name for the Siera) website detailing the mod. Looking at your photo it will make yours stick out even further on the rear wheel arches.
Not done it myself the shims go between the mounting face of the trailing arm and the shaft bearing carrier. I did think an alternative would be to machine the trailing arm but you would need to work out how much to take of and the angle, not forgetting this mounting surface also sets the rear wheel toe in.

Hi, 

I got a set of 'camber correction' plates from ebay.

I haven't fitted them yet, but they look like they'll do the job.

Thanks for the link, but, as I said, I had to correct almost 4 degrees [wink]
