6. Adjust new camber kit to roughly the same size as OEM kit. It helps when putting new kit on. You can adjust after the car is back on the ground.

7. You'll notice when you put the bolt that screws into the brake assembly/rotor it has nothing to lock it in place. The OEM kit has threads on it. The new SPC comes with a brand new 17mm bolt that locks on the end.
(see pic)

8. When bolting back on the ABS bracket (10 mm socket) snip off the tab to give it a better fitment. (see pic)
9. Finished product...(see pic)

just inspired me to do it myself.... great write up

Forgot something.

You need to take the two nuts and snug them up or your center adjuster will turn causing dammage to the ABS line and the cause some some camber problems.

I was wondering if anyone had pictures of this install. The op's original pictures no longer show up for me. Thanks.

Since no one else has pictures, I took some while I was doing my install. I purchased the Eibach Camber kit from Showstoppers for $135, and did the install this past weekend following the instructions that came with it. (Eibach = SPC, it even says SPC on it)

1. Here you can see the camber kit installed on the car.
2. Here's a shot where you can see the bolt that holds on the ABS line, and the nut you use since the kit isn't threaded.
3. This is the original camber link

I installed the same kit. there is a creak from the passenger side on sharp turns. i feel like i am forgetting some detail after installing them causing this creak. any clue?:drama:

got a question, i was putting the camber kit in, got one side done and then i went to the other side, started taking everything off and the bolt that i highlighted, BROKE!! but it broke inside, like it just spins now pretty freely. and i can't pull it out. How am i gonna get it out, or is there any access to the top of the bolt where it goes in the chassis?

Any Ideas?

It spins freely?

I'm confused as to why it spins freely but maybe using a dremel, grind/cut a line into it, so you can fit a beastly flat-head and screw it out?

Or jb weld a tool to it, then rip it out?
