What kind of camber kit? If you did a DIY you can find instructions on the web on how to install the KMAC eccentric camber bolts..

It is a pretty straight forward install. Remove the standard bolts/bushings, install the new ones on the trailing arm.

I installed the BavAuto rear camber kit myself, same as yours I think.
Read my thread, I discussed how to install them.

VERY carefully......









ok ok so i was being a smart-a$$ i'm interested in how these are applied as well. i think i'm just going to get the full rear adjustable arms. they seem to look 40 times better than a couple bolts. I've read that people are having problems with those staying together, or keeping them from slipping out of place. also those are about as expensive as the full rear adjustable arms. just my 2 cents...plus i'm interested to see how these are used.

your car has a totally different rear suspension setup than ours. Unfortunately for us Ti guys, the only way for us to adjust the rear camber is by using adjustable bushings. I agree that they're waaaay too expensive but if you don't want negative camber then it's our only option. e36 coupes, sedans and verts use adjustable control arms, which aren't cheap either, but atleast you don't feel like you're getting raped by spending 200 bucks for a couple pieces of plastic.

oh wow i thought the rear suspension was the same...my bad. I guess that's what i get for thinking eh? Ya those pieces are crazy expensive for the adjustable bushings. Those arms for my car are expensive as well...it's just 3 pieces of metal with adjuster nuts on each end of the middle piece for 150 an arm. I still don't see how they can charge 200 dollars for an adjustable bushing for you guys tho.
