Planning on taking the plunge and machining my control arms. Looking for the best source for camber shims as I only have the ABS sensor shims on my car. Did a search but didn't come up with anything.

Thanks!
Tom

Lots of us have extras! Send me your address by PM and I'll mail you a few this weekend. Ask several people to mail you a few of their extra shims and you'll be all set.
Thanks,
Joe

Wow! Thanks chococar! I really appreciate that and I'll PM you my address. Can I give you something for them?

Thanks Dave and fpitas for the link...looks like a valuable resource. If I come up short, I'll buy some from there.

Anyone else have shims they don't mind parting with?? Happy to cover shipping!!

Hi Tom,

Don't bother with $$ for shipping -- they will just go into a USPS envelope and be cheap. Do a favor for another Lotus owner instead :)

Thanks,

Joe

purist, how many mm's are you taking off and are you milling the arms or the hub carrier? i've seen threads with either side being done, with good arguments accompanying.

Ace, I was planning on removing 5mm from the steering arm. Open to other ideas, though.
