Lotus Elan

Camber settings on a elan

I think the only way to adjust camber is if you have adjustable suspension and to adjust the ride height. There are no shims to add/remove or eccentric bolts etc, thus increasing/decreasing ride height will give a more positive/negative camber angle. But then you could screw up the corner weighting….

For rear toe in you need adjustable wishbones.

Also this…

However, the rear tyres are “scrubbing” so 2mm toe in per side is probably a better value.

Thanks for the link Mark, gives me a good point of reference.
BTW: I'm trying to get 2 front top wishbones
For an idea I have to make some adjustable front camber links. These will still use the OEM rubber inner bushes. And can be adjusted without removal.
I don't want to take my car off the road while building the links, and then there's the chance I'll F it up.
