I have another noob question.. Do I really need caster camber bolts? Cuz it was only a 1.5" drop. The wheel looks completely straight and when I got it aligned, the toe, caster, and camber were perfect.
I did everything all at once so I only had to tear into the suspension once. I can say at 1.5", you'll want the camber plates, adjustable panhard bar, non-adjustable lower control arms, and the relocation brackets. I still never went and got an adjustable UCA and I haven't had any issues. I don't think I'll swap the UCA unless the car goes into a shop for something like Cams, the UCA is a pain in the ass to get to and replace.
Same as what they said, get relocation brackets, 1.5 drop def needs panhard, stand at the back on your car and look at your left rear wheel, its closer to the fender than the right rear wheel, the panhard will adjust the lateral geometry of your suspension.
at the moment your stock LCA are down with the axles. you need to keep them in the middle/horizontal for DD, drags racers tend to keep them down with the axles to get more push into rear wheels. The relocation brackets will help you deciding which hole/angle you want to place your LCA at.
Make sure you plan on having good geometry when fixing all those above, specially if you used adj LCA and UCA.
I bought camber bolts and never put them in. I like the extra negative camber. I run about -1.75* on the left front and 2.125 on the right. It seems to help on initial turn in and I like it. There is a tire wear issue but I flip my front tires from side to side about every 6 months to extend the life of my tires but it still falls a bit short on mileage.
If your alignment is within spec I wouldn't worry about them.
Ok thanks for the help everyone! I did notice the rear wheels seeming a little asymetrical. So I'll try not to drive it much until I get the panhard bar and LCA and re-los. I haven't seen any strange tire wear or anything. Could just be the fact that I only put about 1500 miles on it in the last 5 months, since I bought it. But I will get the caster camber bolts or plates because I don't want any issues. I would've bought it all together but unfortunately I don't make very much money lol.
