A real good example of a different way to adjust camber is this '50 Chevy Pickup we're working on here. We've built a modern pickup chassis for this based on a 2004 Chevy 4x. But I can show you on the front suspension, this is how they work on modern vehicles. So the hot rod that I just showed you there that we--are going to adjust by moving, you know--this assembly in the front suspension. A modern vehicle, you know, there's another 50 years of evolution here, the--we loosen this nut and you move this washer, and this pin stay still. As you turn the washer, it moves the front of the control arm in and out. There's washers like that at both front and rear control arm-control arm mounting points, you can see this would be much easier to adjust.
