I'm tearing apart the new project--- motor and trans are out and nose is off. The car has alot of negative camber with no weight on the front end and there are already a fair amount of shims on the upper control arms. I'm concerned that it will be worse after the weight is put back on. There is also some bad metal/bondo repair on the tops of the inner fender/shock tower area. I've read that negative camber can be the result of the shock towers leaning outward. I'm concerned that maybe the bad metal repair has solidified a bad alignment scenario. What's a fair distance between the shock towers (shock top to shock top)? Also, what is the best/safest method of removing the coil springs on this car?
