[TR] Ehat is the proper rear camber setting for the TR4A?

They changed the camber settings over the course of production, and the TR6 settings are different from the 4A, and there were two or three TR6 specs.  That I why there are three sets of brackets available, you can either mess around with brackets or get the Goodparts adjustables, I got the adjustable ones (you get 4) and put two on the car, on one each side of course, and ebayed off the other two as I am a cheap bastard and you can adjust with only one on each side.

As in many cases, Buckeye Triumphs has an article on this, which includes theoretical camber settings with the various bracket combinations.  Good stuff.

I just borrowed a real camber measurement device and it says it is 1.75 positive on both sides unladen.  When I had the measurement with me sitting in it, I went to +1.0.  I weigh more than 150 lbs.  When two people are in it, it will most likely STILL be +0.5.  

So, I will let things settle more for now.  It only has maybe 10 miles on it after the suspension mods.  Then it seems likely I will need to get the Goodparts adjustable brackets.  I think I need to lose at least 0.75 degrees on both sides.

FWIW, the spec in the TR6 workshop manual is -1 degree, +/- 0.5 degrees in "2 up condition".  Which I take to mean laden with
passenger and driver.
