I'm not sure but my right rear tire is bent slightly in and rubbing on the one arm. Not good. I think you need adjustable struts for this.

Slot the struts. Very easy task. You can also buy eccentric bolts.

Given that messing up with my car would involve a trip to the USA, I think I'll leave the struts alone ;)

You can use the camber bolts, but you sacrafice some bolt strength. Slotting the struts isn't hard, a dremel, or metal cutting burr on an air tool, and some patience is all it takes.

are there not rear lower adjustable control arms for 1gns like there are for 2gn's? i saw LilSparkPlug on 2gn got a set of these for her SRT and they allow for rear camber adjustment? would there be something like that for our 1gn's too? (her's are through Mopar...)

My replacement Sensatracs had the upper hole sloted, so it all depends on the manufacture of the strut.
