I was taking a look at the the rear suspension on the Laurel last night, looking to remove some of the camber in an effort to get more traction.
I removed the spring and disconnected the shock and jacked the suspension up until it bottomed. I always wondered what hit first when it would bottom out while driving.

Looks like its hitting the fender flares on the lip of the rim.

I pulled the inner bolt out of the trailing arm and pushed it up to remove the camber. Unfortunately, it pushes the wheel/tire out and will no longer clear the fender flare.
I have been thinking about selling the wheels... maybe its time?

Maybe... but even if I can get 2deg. of camber out I would still be at an inner tire shredding 3.5deg.

It's really hard to know what they are worth in this market.
I would like to get $1900 out of them if possible.
Considering how much new 9" MKI's are and the fact that 11" wide are no longer available I think that is a fair price.
