Default LS400 NRCAs

My buddy just made me some NCRAs so that I can adjust my front camber significantly more at my current height.

Pictures of the NCRAs on his UCF10. This is minimum negative camber (-4 according to his math). I'll post some pictures of max as soon as I pic up my set.

The they are made out of 6061-T6 Aluminum and the hardware used is 12.9 grade. They also lower the car 1.25 inches in addition to adding almost another inch of coil-over travel.

Hmm very interesting. I can get -5 in the rear on stock adjustments w/ my youzealand ss kit installed as well. If I ever need to go more, I might be interested in purchasing a set.

But I'm glad parts like these are finally coming out for the LS guys

this is more along the lines of the nagisa auto camber adapter from the way it looks.

what i really want is a reasonably priced rear SS kit to relocate the lower shock mount similar to what Youzealand did.

Yeah...I'm at -4.5 in the rear on natural camber....Lower your car more and tuck that tire/rim. Then get an alignment and tell us what the camber is at.

i gotta wonder why this hasn't been done before. seems like it has to have been thought of before which makes me wonder why it's not on the market. can't think of anything at the moment.

actually all you need are the center-center distances of the 2 holes for the lower ball joints, diameters of the bolts, and have him mill a steel insert sleeve.

its more of a production cost thing than a design issue. (for RCAs, NRCAs require more math/geometry to get the right camber change.)
