Camber is the "tilt" of the tires. Top of the tire leaning out or in. No way to change that on a solid axle. As stated above, You need an adjustable panhard bar to adjust the left, right position of the rear axle. You can either remove the bumpstops or cut them for clearance when you lower your car that much. Its going to ride like hell though because you will have NO suspenion travel. G

Not completely accurate. I know of a Pontiac that ran in the original Trans Am series with a couple or more degrees of camber on its rear solid axle. What they did was to bolt/chain the pumpkin section to the ground and jack up the ends until they stayed the way they wanted. There was enough slop in the tolerances that no other changes were necessary. Seems to me it would be "Herb Adams" for research.

I mentioned this to a friend whose son is chief mechanic on a LeMans-winning team. The friend said his son had learned where to create a weld-heat hot spot on the solid axles of race trucks (he was crew chief there too) to accomplish the same thing.

If you need it, it's out there.
