    Hey Guys,

    I read that ke70 strut tops in a ae86 give more caster,
    does that mean that ae86 camber tops in a ke70 gives me less caster?
    I am running cusco ae86 camber tops in my ke70

    Cheers
    Matt

    There are different variants of camber tops which give you different caster. I believe there are at least 2 different Cusco types for caster.

    Stock AE86 camber tops come in 2 different offsets. The 4A-C spec cars have low caster tops, and the 4A-GE spec cars have more caster. The Cusco brand strut tops for AE86 also come in 2 different offsets. Most common, are the ones that give greater caster.

    SPIN the camber plate. so that the holes line up again but your adjustment can come back as well as in. so set it up with a diagonal line. then you have adjustable caster and camber. with some adj. lower control arms your set of ridiculous camber.

    no chance nissan man.

    also the 2 versions of strut tops are not 4ac/4age.

    but power steering and non power steering type. the power steering ones have the higher caster.

    good to know
    does having more caster make steering heavier? so the power steering is used to assist the heavier steering? or that is just how it is
