Proper way - Camber Shims

Ghetto way - Washers Wink

Need to remove the rear stub axle and space out the lower edge using the shims/washers.

On the front you need adjust it using the strut to hub mounting bolts. Not sure how it is on the Mk2 but on the Mk1 you have a cam bolt to adjust it.

Say goodbye to the inside of your tyres Laughing

on the front of a mk2 you replace the top 19mm head strut bolt with special ones that are 18mm an narrower than original to give a bit of movement..

The bolts are genuine parts, dont know what they cost but cant be that much for 2 bolts

Cymro them are some mean shims lol, where you get them? Custom made?

for the rear jus do what BigGR5 sed an use some washers behind the bottom of the stub axle, easy, very cheap to do an if done properly not unsafe either.

Threadlock always helps make sure bolts dont come loose which is the only real worry with it.

Front bolts if yours hasnt already got em are genuine only i think. Both are nice an cheap to do Very Happy
