Thanks for the help once again Steve top man!!!!! And now for part 2 of the on going fun and game's with Henry my SA 2.5, finely got the rack recond and all lovely and good, but after getting the rack back on I took it strait to the wheel alignment centre but when they got it up on the ramp they done the tracking fine but the camber was off on the driver's front wheel, the inside of the tyre was gone and both back wheel's were off as well and they said they couldn't do any thing about it as there was no adjuster for it, is this true and if so dose this mean some thing is bent or will it mean a lot of wiggerling and jiggerling to get this right? 
 I really wont this sorted if some one tell's me some thing is wrong but I can't do any thing about it I just have to fix it no matter what, any help will be of grate help!!!!!

Thanks once again for all the help alrady!!!!!!

Camber on the front is adjusted by the top wishbone bushes - they are off centre and turning them adjusts the camber.

Rear is a bit trickier - there is a bit of adjustment in the main bolts.  Baxter is just making some camber shims to bring the camber back into line when a van's been lowered - is yours lowered?

to be honest if you're lowering it you'll have to set the camber again...

there's loads of threads about it on here...
