    Is -1.7 of front camber too much for a daily?

    It sounds ridiculously high, but that's what I'm running.

    I installed 034 adjustable uppers and had a shop align it and the printout says final specs were -1.7 of camber on each side and I think 0.05 of toe-in per side.

    I can see the marks on the cam sprocket easily. But previous owner put an intercooler pipe right underneath the snub mount, so there's no way I get get a wrench in the gap and onto the crank bolt. :(
    And I really don't want to touch that pipe as it popped off the turbo side on me twice in the past year. But I guess I'll have to, huh?
    A simple job and there's always something that makes it last 10x longer.

    I think you just stumbled upon the Audi service training slogan.

    Question for everyone... going to replace the bushings on the lower control since the toe bolts are seized and figured, "while I'm in there" (famous last words).

    Has anyone had to replace the rear track arms?



    I was looking at the rear track rods and was considering replacing them since I can't seem to find just the bushings.

    FWIW, I've done a number of CCT's without putting the engine at TDC. However, I do use white out or a paint pen to mark the chains and cam caps just to make sure nothing goes out of time. The OCD side of me would prefer to put the engine at TDC, but it's a pain in the ass to get a socket on the crank bolt without moving the rad support.

    Thanks.
    Yes, I would certainly be marking everything (chain, cam sprockets, cam caps) before disassembling. So, I should be OK, right?
    If the chain stays in the same place on the same teeth on the cam sprockets, all is well, right?

    To your point, I changed my timing belt without engine at TDC by simply marking the old belt and marking the new belt at the same place and putting it on without issues.

    This would also save me from having to take out spark plugs to rotate the engine easily.

    Yep, I mark the cam sprockets too, and count the 16 rollers about a hundred times, lol. So yeah, you should be fine!
