Hi Alan, Yes, quite right, I had said rear first and front second in the first post. Sorry for confusing!! J

Its (allegedly) off a Cerbera. Here is a page of most of the bits. I'm still not sure how it works! I can only assume that the tube in the wishbone is threaded. My idea was to have a similar adjusted at the other end so you could tweak camber as well.

Now I had better vanish before the thread police start knocking.

OK, if it’s a Cerb then it’s a left hand/right hand double male threaded piece I believe. And you’re right, we’ve moved off the original thread. Nice talking to you though. Cheers.

I looked at my owners manual today. It says 22 for normal use, 28 for high speed/high load. Maybe I will stick with 28. Is it the shop manual that specs higher in the rear?

Yes, the lotus manual says 20 front, 24 rear. This is a common format for front engine/rear drive cars.
