      Sounds like you need some negative camber.

      Also, 19"s are tough.

      Its the bolt in the picture I posted in the previous post. The one in the background you just loosen it and and push the arm out, then tighten again

      You're talking about the bolt on the left with the washer right? not the bold to the left of the blue springs?

      Bolt left of the blue spring, top bolt = camber bolt. The bolt all the way to the left, way left is the subframe bolt.

      He means that the scrub radius changes with offset changes. Valid point.
