Yes, after the refresh the minimum rear camber that could be achieved was -2 49' on the left and right. Front cambers are -1 16' and -1 03' with the pins still in place.

My plan is to try to get the front cambers to both about -0 45' and then use the adjustable arms to get to -1.5 on the rears with toe on low side of the allowed tolerance.

As an aside I paid £320 delivered for both sets of arms which I thought was a very good price. I guess the company realised the price was too good and they're now £420.

My US spec 2003 x5 4.6iS door jam says 32psi front and 39 psi rear for standard load / pressures on 20" staggered wheels.
