Default 740 / 940 camber for track

I have BNE adjustable strut mounts and have maxed what I can for camber on the lower control arm. I get a little more than 1 degree. I am eating the outside edge of the tires on track. The 240 teams extend the lower control arm to get about 3 degrees. The only way I can see to extend the 740 arm is to cut it on the outside and weld in a piece of solid bar stock.

Any examples of what others have done to get more camber out of the 7/9 series?

Do you run a standard diameter front spring?

No. I am running BNE 2.5" coilovers with shortened struts and QSRCs.

You should be able to get a bit more than that.

Post some pics of how your strut mounts are installed.

Not very good pictures... Car is in storage until the weekend.




Basically as far as I could get them towards the engine.

I should also mention, some previous owner cut the inside ends of the strut rods and control arms and replaced with spherical rod ends. I tried lengthening the control arm at the spherical rod end, but it causes the strut rod to be out of alignment with the mount point.

Check if its touching the sheet metal. You can usually misalign the 2 mount studs a bit to get it over if its not.

The other model strut mount we offer moves the bearing below the sheet metal, that could give you more upper adjustment if you require.

Thanks. I'll explore drilling a new holes and trimming the sheet metal a bit to see how much camber I can get.

You probably don't need to drill but if you do clearance the sheet metal that will get you over more.
