Hey guys having issues solving my rear camber problems :( right now I’m getting about 70% tire wear. Of course I want 100% but I can not find eccentric bolts for the rear to have adjustability. I’m sure every x7 owner has had this problem before CE35584B-B3F6-4CAF-8431-D67485BEBF8C.thumb.jpeg.e21b151b2cc064e56bbc3e544d76dd83.jpeg

The quest to have the most retarded x7 possible still continues.  On this months edition: Hopefully ACTUAL camber and toe corrected rear geometry.

Subframe isn't done but you can see they moved the outer mounts (ones that more largely affect camber) down and the inner ones up to compensate for binding that occurs when you only move the outer mount down (which is what most people try and do.) Getting excited to see what life will be like with less than -3-4 degrees in the back hah

In v8 world we thought we burned out both fans last event.  But it turns out one of the fan's housing busted and caused the blades to collide with it and those broken blades went into the other fan and broke all those blades haha. 

I really wanted to hit JZ meeting, but at the rare it's going I'm probably gonna have to miss it.  But should be good for our yearly event with special guest @jzxseven 😍😍😍

Question from a 'no X7 experience what so ever' guy:

Why can't you just heat, and bend the bearing/stub axle end of the swing arm to correct camber ?
I've seen it done on Datsun 510 swing arms.

Thats probably a valid way, as well a solution that probably would have worked for me: was for them to weld the adapter plates at an angle to correct it when they were welding them, which I wish I did.  I was worried about adding complexity but clearly these guys know what they are doing haha

My Ra65 has the same rear suspension design and issues, and there has been several different approaches to correcting the geometry when lowered.. This looks like one of the more thought out options I've seen out there..

Who makes this? Or was this a custom deal?

Its a fab shop that is local to me.  I did see on the celica supra FB group that some shop had designed tubular control arms which accepted much stronger hubs basically what I had done to my arms but nicer.  I think he was talking about producing them once they where tested or something.  But those arms didn't address the camber problem.
