Hey fellas, does anyone have a shop recommendation in the Los Angeles area that can install a set of rear camber/toe adjusters on a 510?  Appreciate the help.

Have you looked at having the rear cross member slotted when lowering? This will move the lower control mounting points higher? and correct that camber/toe caused by lowering.

Thanks Mike, that's an option as well.  Currently the camber isn't terrible, but I'm pretty sure toe is bad.  Problem is i don't know of any shop/garage that is familiar with slotting the rear cross member or installing a set of adjusters.

Why do people do this?

A $100 tow bill is never as much as the extra damage you cause by trying to "limp the car home".

 

Don't be that person !

I'm sure Brad at the Hoseshop (Uptown Whittier) would take this on.
