Negative chamber wedge kit without Arning Drop?
I bought my 66 coupe with several changes/upgrades. Some of which include 620 springs (I think with 1 inch drop), a heavy front sway bar, and a negative camber wedge. HOWEVER, the Arning Drop was never completed on this car. Just the wedge installed.
I understand the purpose of the wedge kit is to avoid wreaking the ball joints with the drop, but beyond that does the wedge provide any other performance improvement? Maybe a better camber curve at 9/10th of the handling envelope? Any real gain for a street only driven car? Perhaps makes installing larger diameter tires easier?
Just as important, is there any down side to running just the wedge? (Aside of course from the improvement to the chamber curve from the Arning Drop.)
With the current wheels, tires (215/70/14), and front springs I have quite a bit of tire rub on the bottom of the leading edge of the front fender. I am afraid if I do the Drop without different wheels I will really tear up the fender.
Looking for comments from folks who have actually made the mods. (Seems every other post is about completing the Drop, or asking why it hasn't been completed yet.)
So, for now, what is the upside and downside to JUST the wedge installed.
