Default CAMBER ADJUSTERS FOR GT TURBO

I anticipate lowering my 04 GT Turbo. Looking for camber adjusters is very confusing. Most venders show photos with a notation, “example, these may NOT be the adjusters for your car”. A very true statement. The price of the kits also have great variations in price. Some imply that the front adjusters are adjustable ball joints. Others say the adjusters provide adjustable control arm mounts. After much research I am convinced that the only front camber adjusters are no more than eccentric strut mounting bolts. Some kits have just upper adjustable bolts, some with upper and lower. All claim different adjustment ranges, although there is just so much the cam can adjust without elongating the mounting hole. The rear is even more confusing. Regardless of claims of various rear camber adjusters, only the shims seem applicable. Some say for rear drum brakes. None say for rear disc brakes. The GT has rear disc brakes. I need some advice. Some info from members who have gone through the installation would be appreciated.

You may be worrying about nothing. Neither my '01 or '03 GT that were lowered with Eibachs need the camber kits at all.

The kits are inexpensive. It pays to have them on hand, just in case. The strut has to be removed to install the spring. It seems good sense to put the adjusters in while its all apart.

Really, unless you are putting it in the weeds you don't need to worry about it.
