Does any one know what the distance(length) from the centers of the mounting points of the 190 2.6 rear camber struts are and what size mounting hardeware Dia. and length for the same part is. I need to machine an adjustable part to set my camber as there is no factory adjustment to compesate for a lowered suspension. My last is to buy a factory one and reverse engineer th part I need.

!By the way what kind of numers could I expect from a 3.6L swap with a Eaton M62 @ 1/2 bar.

I'll leave the suspension tweaks the MB DOC, he is the resident suspension guru.

As for the 3.6 swap....Impressive gains to say the least. We have another Shop Forum member who is in the process of building something similar. He is taking a 2.6 I6 and taking it out to 3.6 with low compression pistons and turbos. His name/handle is Krahe. You two should really talk... I'd recommend you go with turbos vs a kompressor. It is a bit tougher to do right but the gains are worth it.

Best of luck in your project and let us know how it turns out...Lee

The best way to return rear camber to a reasonable level is to slot the subframe where the lower control arm mounts. You will have to shorten a front camber/caster bolt & rethread it so that rear camber can be adjusted. Take time to study how much material to remove & where to remove it!!
