    UPR. Caster Camber Plates issues

    I installed a set of UPR caster camber plates the other day. I have the spacers on them and they still sound like metal to metal contact over every bump.
    Has anyone ever had this before? If so what’s the correction?

    Its all about the spacer placement. Depending on the strut also. Some go under the plate and some go on top of the plate.

    Coil overs?

    No coil overs. I’m running a stock shock/strut set up. I have the spacers on the top and bottom. I’ve tried changing the spacer packs around and no luck. I’m to the point where I’m going to put the stock plates back on.

    Ill try to look at mine tomorrow and see how the spacers are laid out on it. May get you close. I know its different for every strut.

    Were they new or used?

    I have always had to use a impact gun on them. No
    Matter how tight you think they have them by hand the impact will always snug them up.

    Need to make sure the top spring hat is not touching anything, use spacers to achieve proper clearance. As others said, tighten top but good. But be sure not to smash the Torrington bearing.
