how is camber adjusted in p3 chassis? s80

Post by twerner » Thu Sep 19, 2019 11:10 am

Any ideas on how to adjust camber with these cars? The strut slides in a bore that is in the spindle, so no offset bolts there. lowers are fixed. Wondering how the adjustment is made?

By looking at the link below are no provisions for any other alignment adjustment except Toe. In the world of alignments it's "Set The Toe & Let It Go".

However, there is a slight play in the stock lock nuts to the strut assembly. You can make a minor adjustment to the camber. If you need more than that there is a usually a problem somewhere.

Below is a set of Camber Adjustment Bolt to help cars with slightly more Camber issues or minor problematic suspensions. It's suitable for a 2007 S80 3.2.

FINALLY: The SAI angle is the one to look at during an alignment as it will indicate whether your have a bent suspension, usually the strut assembly.
