Susp: Installing front SPC Balljoint camber kit

Well i finally got around to installing my camber kit last night.. Pretty straight forward affair. Very High quality parts for being made in china
But considering this is the best camber kit for the front of our cars

Tools needed:

10mm, 17mm, Needle Nose, Hammer, and a Vise or press


Upper Arm Removal Process
Step 1:


Step 2:


Step 3:


Step 4:

Useing the nut from your old ball joint (flipped upside down for better strength) Hit the nut with a hammer until she pops loose
Alt Method: Use a pickle fork or other form of balljoint seperator


Step 5:
Remove the upper arm nuts in the engine bay

Like this..

And pull your old arm out

Like so!
Now the fun begins

Now i had removed the balljoints from my extra arms a few days previously so i had time to prep and paint them..

To remove the balljoint;
Scrap all the crud and dirt off it.. And find/remove the snap-ring keeping it from coming out.

Using the triangular hole in a jackstand (NOT the ones holding up your car!!!) I had that to hold the arm while i pounded the balljoint out with a hammer.. A socket about the size of te Bj eases removal

I already have poly bushing so i transfered my anchors from the old arms to the new ones



Installing camber plate
So heres your arms. Bare!


And heres your camber plate


Step 1:
Line the slot in the camber plate up straight with the hashmark/notch in the control arm


Step 2:
Put it in a vice and clamp her down as straight as you can


Step 3:
Remove arm and insure that the plate was pressed down properly/straight.


Step 4:
Put the Rest of the camber kit together

Note: Be sure to recognize which way the balljoints are facing, One way is for positive camber and the other is for negative




So here it is side by side with the old one



So now just reverse of removal! Toque the baljoint bold to spec, of in my case German Specs- GootanTight

And heres your final product!



Now go get an alignment!

I recomment STRAIT ALIGNMENT in Port Angeles, WA!!! =]
