All I did was install shorter springs. No drop spindles or anything special. With the 4" drop in the front, I've got a really noticeable amount of camber that's affecting my steering a little.

So when I lengthen the slots, would I lengthen towards the inside of the frame or would I lengthen it to the outside frame?

Towards the tire.

First thing is to loosen the camber bolts & pull the tire (a-arm) out as much as you can, & then see how much more you need toooo.

check out the tread I made about the way I fixed mine.

Tire lean after drop

Great write up man. Love the pictures. You have a third generation though. Does that apply to 2nd Gen too?

Enough to take about 5/16 or so. Maybe not that much.

What do you want to see? The camber angle of my tires, or the pivot bolt slots?
