Offset camber plates - yes or no with Adj TC rods

Post by cartel » 27 Jan 2019 20:50

i will be doing Adj TC rods and wasnt sure if there would be any benefit for the Offset camber plates on top of that-

I dont really care if im cutting the top of the tower so thats not a concern- as all the original Tilton style plates required cutting - ( i like the look better anyway)

and almost certain i will get the JB rack setup once new motor is in..

If I may.
Will the "camber" plates you mention give you anything else but camber adjustment? If not, then the adjustable TC rods will give you adjustable "caster".
But if the new camber plates you mention also give you adjustable caster, then the adjustable TC rods may not be needed.

We recommend both with our rack setup. The bump is designed with 6.5 degress of caster.

I’m rebuilding my camber plates to allow about 1” rearward movement of the top hats. The spotted mounting holes in my Ground Control camber plates don’t provide enough movement at all. And they make it a huge pain to remove and install since the bolts aren’t captive in the upper plate.
