Just installed some Vmaxx coilovers and had the miata aligned.
Tech said "maxed out no more adjustment"
The front camber bolt is indeed maxed out, whats up?
I requested
Front camber: -2* (or as close as you can get to it)
Caster: +3.75 to +4.25*
Front total toe: 0

Rear camber : -1.8*
Rear total toe: 0

lol more caster = less camber.
take that **** back get like 4 degrees of caster. that'll put you at a range of 2.5 degrees - 3 degrees of camber.

caster bolts are closest to the bumper.
camber bolts are closest to the fire wall.

they are adjusted together.
try 4 degrees of caster and -2.5 camber.

the tech was probably like wtf is double wish bone ****...

Ok, thanks. So the caster bolt being maxed out is the issue here. Why the tech cannot adjust the camber correctly? Just making sure I understand it.

wait i have it backwards. front bolt is camber. rear bolt is caster.
i'm fuckin up.

your problem is you have way too much caster and not enough camber.
camber and caster need to meet in a nice place.
think of it this way.
if you have 6 degrees of caster you get 0 degrees of camber.
if you have 0 degrees of caster you get 6 degrees of camber.
