    Hey guys,

    I know this has probably been asked 100 times but i cant seem to find a thread on it at the moment. Can i use 86 cambertops in a ke70 im pretty sure the stud patterns the same but is the hole in the middle the right size for the adjusters to do their job??

    Cheers, Greene

    Do you have to put a spacer inbetween the camber top and the spring hats?

    When running 86 tops in a 70 it reduces your caster considerably..

    No easy way to fix it other than getting a new top plate machined that places the top of the strut back in the right location...

    Or do what i did and wait until you can find some added caster tops for ae86.

    They will be within 2 mm of perfect for a ke70 or ae71.

    Cusco make them, I think mine are Teins. Cheers for the tops, Seamus.

    No, but there is plenty of adjusment in the stock castor rods.
