    torsion bar question

    when you do the torsion bar tck, why do you flip the keys upside down? and also, where is the rotary camber disk?

    I answered in the PM about the key....
    Rotary Camber Disk?? Sounds like a camber adjustment, which doesn't exist on a S10.

    Ovel shapped bolts??? If you are talking about that riveted on pad, that's the upper ball joint cover plate. You can go ahead and drill out the the rivets and screw around with that thing for awhile, maybe you will gain a degree of + camber:D

    i will try

    but these bolst can adjust caster too well to an extent
    ummmmm
    on a convetional strut
    it mounts at the top right three bolts
    well were is connect at the bottom
    ex( on a caravan FWD)
    there are two blots that hold it to the spindle
    one of those has a lop sided head to contol camber and other aligment components

    that shap of blot is what i have on the upper control arm
    on mine it will adjust the camber alittle
    it is hard to explain and i di\unno if i can get a pic
    even if i do i dunno how to post it:confused:

    You are talking about a S10 Blazer 4x4, right?
    If you can get a pic on to your computer, I will show you how to post it.
