    Aww, you tried to help and I really appreciate it :)

    On a side note, driving with a bad rack and possibly a steering shaft is like trying to drive in a hurricane. *Definitely not going over 30 mph til I get this fixed!!! :eek: *

    So the cam adjusters are not worth getting? When you say you removed the eccentrics, did you reuse them with better bolts and nuts? I am getting ready to lower my X since the front end is out of alignment and I want to get this done and just make one trip to get the alignment done. I will buy the adjusters just to get the eccentrics if that is what will work. Thanks for the info.

    That's weird. I installed the adjusters and it helped me tremendously. When I lowered the first time I wore through my tires in less than two weeks. Put it back up until I could get some extra money for the adjusters. I lowered it again and installed my camber adjusters this time and it fixed my camber almsot completely. Been like 3 onths and not seeing a lot of wear.

    Just goes to show you how different one x/mounty is to another, lol.

    Yeah strange. I was wearing tires all the time and now I am at Awesome! wear is good and tracks like a champ. Think yours has to do with being bent.
    Just my 2 cents...

    Has anyone tried these type of camber adjusters?

    I am going to call Jegs to find out if you reuse your existing bolts with this type of adjuster.

    I just got off the phone with the tech from Jegs, he says the adjusters use your existing bolts for installing. Just thought I would share this with everyone. I plan on buying these for mine, I will post the install when I have it done with results.
