Im about to buy a used 4" AA lift. I was wondering how people have fixed the camber issues this lift kit produces. It seems to me if i hack the strut spacers shift them over x amount of inches it should fix the problem. I know people have done it and it worked fine. I guess im trying to get a # in inches to shift the parts then reweld.

Thanks
Orion

I have lifted all of my subarus past and present the same way that sjr does and never had any serious camber issues or much tire wear so I never really saw the need to alter the strut block:-\

Ive heard of a few people stating that the 4" AA lift produces camber issues. I havent heard it for the SJR lifts. No bit deal, i just want to starighten them out if possible. I dont really like increasing tire wear on 500 bucks in tires.

the strut block should sit at a 12 degree angle , so on a 4" lift the hole difference from top to bottom should be 27/32 inch . set the block on the table and take a square to it and measure in and thats what the difference should be from top hole to bottom hole Scott
