damnit!!!.... i was doing the washer trick i did the first one fine.... i did have a lot of trouble trying to losen the bolts but other then that it was easy.... then on the next side i did the first screw fine with the washers and the second one came out and then i tried to screw in the last bolt and it somehow tore the thread of the screw and stripped it.... so now i have to get a ride to go back to home depot to get a new bolt... but other then that it has been easy and some what fun to do

Washer Trick

I've heard about this trick and I'm all for it (I want to do this too) but I wonder how this changes the loading (if any) on the upper arm.
Will it cause flexing during cornering and cause more stress on the mounting point?

I've done this on my 00 civic and its been fine after 6 months now. And I do alot of hard cornering and its all good.

How many washers should you put with TEIN S TECHS 1.9 F 1.7 Rear, i'm thinking 2 per each bolt. I am going to get an alignment but I don't want to get one do the trick and end up having to get another one.

Yeah, you'll probably only need two per bolt.

Rear camber fix aka washer trick

Yesterday I had two tires mounted and went to put them back on the bike.... Front was no problem but I am not sure about the orientation of the rear wheel spacers. I know what side each goes on just not the direction each faces. Help?
