    Hey guys

    i purchased a K-Mac camber kit for the IRS in my VP SS and was told by a mechanic that he’d need to drop the whole rear cradle out to do the job & it would take 5 plus hours to do.

    * First question do you need to take the whole cradle out to fit 4 bushes.

    * could you drop the arm out/down to remove old bushes and install the K-Mac’s

    Your comments would be appreciated

    Cheers Az

    Haven’t used the KMac kit but with Nolathane you just drop the arms…

    Don’t imagine it would be any different, maybe he’s confused and is thinking of the Subframe bushes?

    No you don’t need to take out the whole cradle, at most unbolt it to lower it a bit to gain some clearance

    The K-mac kit is excellent, they also provide a bush extraction tool which allows you to remove the old bush without removing the whole arm. Pay attention the direction you insert the bolts as it can make adjustment a bit tight if they go with the heads on a particular side.

    Thanks for your feedback guys

    i have used K-Mac suspension on a number of cars I’ve had over the years & always happy with their products hence why I went with their camber kit plus they are the only people that supply a extrusion tool.

    Cheers Az
