Front end help.

Post by Tom77 on Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:49 am

Changing out front suspension and steering. Forgot about shims in the upper A arms. Can anyone tell me how many shims they have in there passenger side front? I know this isnt the same on all cars but want to get close for the drive to the aligment shop. The drivers side had two on the front and 5 on the rear bolt. On the passenger side a total of eight shims fell out. affraid Thanks in advance for the help guys!

Yeah, just split the difference, as long as your shop is local you should be ok. All the new front end parts wont have the slop your old ones did so your camber/caster/toe are gonna be all out of whack anyway. Try to get your toe adj. as close as possible..toe adjustment will affect tire wear much much faster than camber. But again, as long as your shop is close you should be a-ok.
