Looking good.
But is that the ride height?
If so the camber is off a little.

Thankyou, the ride hight will be 1/2" lower so it should bring the camber where it needs to be.

I lowered the ride hight about 3/8 inch. It brought the camber back close to where it needs to be, I may take these arms apart and bend them for a little more negitive camber.
I remember my first car was an 86 F1504x4, sitting still I remember seeing positive camber. So I may leave a little pos camber.

I picked up a flapper wheel for my grinder yesterday, and wow what a differance. It is much easier to round corners in the aluminum and it looks better to.

Also landed a sales job yesterday.

Thanks, the plan is as soon as it is a roller to take it to an old thrashed 1/8scale out door track and really test the suspension.

Hopefully I can convince my wife to shoot some video for me.
