With the adjustable struts NOT adjusted all the way up (maybe half way, for fine tuning)?

however, my 86 ea82 wagon when i originally put it together with the stock adjustable struts i drilled out the strut bearing plate so i could put longer grade 8 bolts in and used rancho shock mount bushings which we're 1 1/2" long. i then took a die grinder with a burr grinding bit and elongated the holes in the strut towers in towards the engine so i could kick the top of the struts in. this took out alot of the positive camber can't remember how much but i think when i did the alignment it was down to about 1/2-1 degree positive. i have since replaced the struts with kyb's they we're to worn out, so i still need to put spacers under the springs to make up for the non adjustment. as far as axles go, i do eat them but don't care doesn't cost me that much and i haven't really got to investigating anything else at the moment but will someday i will.
don't know if this helps or answers any questions, but i like my sooby this way. alot of my friends that run jeeps, samuris and toyotas are envious of my ground clearance and are quite impressed with what i have been able to do with it when i go wheelin with them and i have gone on some pretty narly trails that they tried to wave me around. i know that this setup is kinda backyard/getto like and i had planned on doing something more permanent but it works so right now it stays the way it is.
