WTB Camaro offset UCA bushings

Postby rsmith350 » Fri May 02, 2014 12:46 pm

Looking to source offset UCA bushing for a fourth gen Camaro. These seem to be unobtanium now. Any ideas?

I emailed Alan Blaine, Strano discontinued them awhile back and the only sets out there are mostly on cars unless they've gone to fully adjustable tubular s.

There's a reply in the AI/CMC Texas site, but to restate, since we can now lengthen the slots in the lower control arms, we can get the alignments we want/need.

I have always run stock uppper mounts and get get close to -3 camber if I want it.

But i'm not as fast as Ross...

The trick with the uppers is you're not stuck with whatever casteryour desired camber gives by adjusting with lowers alone.

If you slot the lowers enough, you will be able to get more camber and caster than you can use.
No need to really mess w/ the uppers at all.
Mine are stock.

I guess if you adjusted both ends on the bottom, you could get that, but just venturing a guess on the ideal scrub radius you'd want to get as close to max track width as possible without spacers which requires one of the 2 lowers to be all the way out leaving only one for adjustment. This is, of course, a personal preference and no, I haven't yet measured my caster to see where I am. I don't want to rely solely on spacers to achieve max track width, but there's one nugget I'm missing: Where is stock for the lower bolt holes? Is it generally the most inside? Is only the front adjustable from the factory and the rear fixed? Just trying to get a guesstimate on the change in scrub without having yet measured it.

Overthinking it a bit man.

Set camber, set caster, set toe, adjust track and be done w/ it.

Which is totally where I'm at now: 2 degrees camber, 1/8" toe out, and drive the damn car. I'm just thinking down the road when the smaller things begin to count more.

That is way smaller than anyone thinks as far as I know.
