Default Camber adjustment on 94 LS400

Hi Lexus members,

Is there a camber adjustment on 94 LS 400? both front and rear? How aggressive I could go? look for negative camber.

Thank You!

yes you have camber adjustment front and rear but it's very limited. i say most you can get is -2deg, and that is at full slammage. rear gets more camber than front. you will need aftermarket arms and negative RCAS for more.

Thanks a lot for info! I'm not sure how much 2 degree is but I don't need much to clear my front wheel. I'm currently rubbing the little rivet in the wheel well, running 40's series tires. 245 40 19 up front and my rear is the same without issue but I did roll both rear fenders. I'm not sure if I could roll the lip up front or camber adjustment. The reason for caber adjustment because I do need a alignment any ways!

Thank You!

That 245 is probably rubbing the fender liner. As least it does in my 98.

You have to basically cut the liner in certain areas or remove it altogether. I cut out most of the front but I can now see it ribs in the back of the tire also.

So you don't think a negative camber will fix the issue, I'm trying not to roll the front fender.

if it's rubbing very lightly on your fender, you should be able to camber in the tire to clear. if it's straight up resting on the tire, you'll need more than just camber adjustment.

Thank You Timmy! I will post pic tomorrow. I have an appointment with alignment shop on Monday. I only rub if I hit a big bump and don't see any evidence on the tire and is rubbing the plastic rivet in the fender wheel.
