a couple of questions

Hello everybody!
I'm putting on my spc rear adjustable camber arms
and have one question:
is the side where you adjust everything is up front - it seems like it has a very low clearance with a rear shock


the other question is what is this part for (located on the both sides in engine bay)


is it necessity to get rear adjustable toes too? to have a proper camber set up for the lowered car? or it is just a "toy" part?

thank you

I'm pretty sure that last part holds on the water guard for the drive belt (aka serpentine belt)...

for the SPC arms, you have them mounted the right way. You may or may not need toe arms depending on how low your drop is. but in most cases you will be fine

thanks guys

yes the last part is on the passenger side is for the water guard but there is exact the same one on the driver's side and don't see anything that attached to it
and it is weird ..

another thing that the spc arm is so close to shock .
I have a pro dumper kit from eibach and it really low
worry about if it is going to eat my tires with stock toes

Now that you have the answer to your part question. I have moved this thread to the proper section so you can get the right answer for your suspension questions.

>>>Thats the front tie down for truck transport or rollback tie down.<<<

Another great upgrade would be toe-links= makes the rear feel more positive & makes your rear toe adjustments a snap.
