Does anyone have any experience with these? Would the work necessary to make them useful be worth it? Would they even be useful or is the camber adjustable enough in stock form to make these a waste of time?

Just a guess but A) I don't think those would have much effect on the camber as the adjustment point is so far away from the axis. And B) even if it does some how offer reasonable adjustment, the only reason to have that would be for easier access if you felt the need to change it frequently (without the benefit of being able to tell what the actual camber is). As it is, the rear adjustment is pretty easy to do. If I were gonna throw a hundred buck at something for my car, that probably wouldn't be it.

I only see these being of benefit on the 88's. They would allow you to drive your car to the autocross track, add a fixed amount of negative camber, race for the day, then return the camber back to near stock before leaving. The reason I limit this to the 88's, they are the only year where rear camber doesn't effect rear toe. On the 84-87s once you added more negative camber, you would have to readjust the toe as the rear tierods would cause a severe toe in condition when the top of the struts are pulled in.

To use this kit, you will have to enlarge the hole in the top of the strut to gain access to the adjusting bolts as well as the make room for the strut shaft to move.

On my 88, I relocated the top strut mount 1" further inboard using some relatively simple mods, but didn't want it to be an adjustable amount like the one above.

Don't plan on buying a set since I don't adjust my camber very often, but for the continuation of learning, would a set of these on a pre '88 car with the bump steer fix where the tie rod is moved to the control arm have a similar effect as an '88 car?
