    Rear camber problem help needed

    Default
    Hi everyone, I got that rail over the summer for like nothing and started to finish it up. It is almost done but I am having a small problem. The rear wheels have way too much positive camber. I think the shocks needs to be changed but I don't know and don't have much cash for it and shocks are expensive. I have put straps to limit the amount but it still too much, see picture below. I tried to adjust the camber but there is no way to do it on the hubs or anywhere, I am starting to think that the rear end is not complete and it is missing a link and a camber kit? Let me know what you guys think, thank you in advance

    Swing axle, nothing you can do about it and it's normal for that type of design......

    Really, is it safe like that? I strapped it at 22inch, should I let it go further with even more camber? It stances on the ground is neutral camber. Right now I have 4 inch down and 4 inch up travel, and my rail rear lowest point, the sprocket has 6 inch clearance, so I should be good? It seams that it was setup for dual shocks, it has dual mounts on each side, should I ditch these shocks and get dual all around? And what should I get?
    Thanx in advance

    Should I use a camber compensator kit?

    That's how a swing axle works. You can limit the travel to get less Camber but you will lose travel. Ford Rangers have been jumping with crazy camber changes for years along with VW rails.

    There's really nothing you can do unless you convert the rear to A-arm setup or Trailing arms.
