How do you correct a serious positive camber. Parts are all new, originally done by some one else

Can only think that the springs are too long or too high a rate (or both), or that too thick spring saddles are being used.

You might also check that the trailing arm brackets weren’t installed upside down or something. If they’re the adjustable brackets, you should be able to readjust them to spec, unless it has the wrong springs.

Ralph --- Several causes and cures for this. All do-able for the enthusiast. You'll want to visit the buckeye triumph web site on "rear Suspension Adjustments".

Are we talking front or rear suspension?
Rear: Adjusting rear camber.

Good point, HK. The picture shows Nelson taking the measurements at the rear wheel rims. I just assumed Ralph was asking about the rears!

Still looking for info on REAR suspension. Top of wheels bowed out 3 to 4 in.

Ralph:

Can you upload a photo please?

It strikes me that whoever overhauled this particular IRS did such a poor job that you're going to have to do it all over again. With any luck, that won't entail purchasing more parts… but something's dreadfully wrong. Heck, I'd say as much if you had just a little positive camber, as many cars that were set up "normally" had significant NEGATIVE camber. So even a little positive camber doesn't seem right.

A photo of the car as it sits would be helpful, but also if you could get it up on stands with the rear wheels removed and take a few shots back there, that would be very interesting indeed.

Good luck.

Thanks Ken, I´m not often at the forum since my 6 was sold, but feel from time to time, I should add my 2 cents.
