I've always wondered...

Jonathan, can you adjust ride, camber and track on those arms?
The factory ones have the height and camber with the two eccentrics by the bush end, the toe's by the slotted 3 holes using another eccentric to fine set the toe.
How do you set the camber on the aftermarket ones?

The arms provide easy ride height adjustment, the camber and toe is done on the eccentrics bolting the spring plate to the suspension arm, just the same as a standard one-piece unit.
