Ok I have replaced my stock springs with the afco super stock which says it requires no spacers but are a inche or two shorter than stock and before the change I had the right front a fram shimmed out a lot for camber and the left front had no shims and that put the tire basically in the neutral camber zone.(another words the tire was standing up strait.) After the spring change I did not change the shims and I have like some major camber on the right front and a good bit on the left front. I think the right front can be controlled by removing shims to makeless camber but the left front has no shims and I dont want camber in it do I, so what next will shorting the lower control arm on the left front fix this problem or any other ideas. Also I was in a hurry and I raced the car like this before I relized the difference it made in camber and It drove like a dump truck plus my stagger was off but that could be why I was very disapointed with my new afco suspension vs by old stock junk. Anyone all help would be great.

I don't know how you can use these springs without a spacer or weight jacks if you want to have the car at the old ride height. If you use the springs to lower the car then you don't need spacers or weight jacks. But like you found out you need to reset your frontend. You may have to use an offset upper a-arm shaft to get it set right.

TRY it out and check your tire temps to see where on the tire you are running.
