I am refreshing my 99 SPEC Miata suspension from end to end. I have several of every piece needed (control arms, subframes etc...) I also have the Advance Autosports jigs. I chose the best of each part and reassembled the car, then using the Setup Guide I started along the path to adjusting the cams and camber etc... The issue is in the front: the LF I can max at 3.7 camber, the right I only max at 2.6 degrees.
Considering I 'jigged' each part against several others along w/ the subframe I am at a loss as to where the issue is and where to start looking before I disassemble the suspension (again).
Based upon angles and such, I would think the lower arm or subframe would be bent in (but I checked them) and I doubt the upper arm would have 'stretched' resulting in less camber. The spindles were also checked, could the ball joints or anything like that be bent or did I just totally miss something?
The car is on leveled pads and I have not changed the spring perches on the shocks since disassembly and the suspension was set-up. Prior to corner weighting I want to at least get the suspension close to the final numbers.
I know I can get the eccentric bushings or EBJ's but that's not really my goal at this time (it might be later though).
At this time I will be going through each piece but is there anything anyone feels I should concentrate on?
