wheel camber

I cut my coils today and was expecting a big change in camber after reashering what should be used IE: Dream Beams,Drop Spindels ect. I got 3" inches by cutting 2 coils out and only a 1/2 inch in camber change,so I'm thinking I could just shim out the upper coil bucket out a 1/2" and be verticly level .

Geez es criminy... if you want to be vertically level get off the cheap whiskey and start drinking Woodford Reserve.

I found it !

As I said befor I only lost a 1/2" of camber doing 1 side today I did the other and found that I have 2" of negative camber vary drastic but doable with out "Dream Beams" mostlikly cost me $20 in steel to shim out the upper coil spring mount. Will need to whatch for rub of tier wall on fender.
So,I will not have to spend $500 for a drop beam. Use your head guy's, a litte surgery and "Old Blue" will be looking good for less........
