Thanks to all for the supportive comments, it' really does help keep me motivated.

I put the SS lines on tonight, note the adj banana bar. I set it a 0 camber, this way I have full range of adjustment with the LCA adjustment bolts

Poly swing blade bushings, not the funnist thing to install

Hope to have the front brakes on tomorrow, Brembo with SS lines

IMHO I would use the upper arm adjustment to set a slightly negative camber, then use the LCA bolts to go from 0 camber to max negative.

Would you ever really want to use positive camber?

I agree. I set to zero with the car in the air, once loaded/lowered I should pick up some neg camber, then adj to preference using LCA. It's just a baseline starting point once I get it loaded/lowered I can go from there. And no, positive camber is not desired lol.
