hard to make, and even harder to find a picture of on the web. seems to corect camber, just like it should. its a 4 inch lift. had to bash the inner fender pretty good.
tires sit like they should, this is my first try at it... i have ideas for better ones, but im runin this one for now.
straight custom!

thanks for posting that, never seen an ea81 one up close. that byb one is pretty much like mine, cept i did the bottom differently, cuz my ban saw broke, after i made the top two plates :drunk:

my dad swears you dont need it, he thinks longer shocks will work, but he dont get it. i told him he could try it on his rig, but not mine.

Thats was the worst part for me too. I had to replace the struts a while back and had to grid every thing all overe again to get it all back together. It sucked

i believe its 7mm of ofset per inch of lift.. or 20-22 degrees for a 4 inch lift. i'll have to look at my notes to be sure though... im very bad at remembering numbers... a spark plug is gapped at .4 right :drunk: jk
