Hotchkis Rear Camber Links - Install (Short)

How To Install Hotchkis Control Arms (Rear Camber Links)
By Tronix, Team Celica Garage @ teamcelica.com

TOOLS REQUIRED
- 14mm Wrench
- 17mm Wrench
- 5mm Allen Wrench
- Socket Wrench
- Socket Extension
- 19mm Socket
- 17mm Socket
- Floor Jack
- Jack Stands
- Hammer and block of wood

--------------------------------------------------

1) Using a floor jack, Jack up your Celica using the rear center jack point (the one near the muffler). Use Jack stands on the side jack points in front of the wheels. You will be up underneath the car quite a bit, so this is highly recommended.

2) Remove the Rear Wheels.

3) Using a 14mm Wrench and a 5mm Allen Wrench Remove the bottom nut and disconnect the endlink (shown below).

--------------------------------------------------
4) Using a 17mm Socket and Wrench remove the bolt and nut from the Control Bar Spindle (shown below). Then Detach Spindle pulling towards you.

--------------------------------------------------
5) Using a 17mm socket with Extension, and a 19mm Wrench, Unbolt the Upper Control Arm Bolt (shown below), and Remove.

--------------------------------------------------
6) The Arms are set at stock length when shipped, you will need to adjust them in to decrease camber, or adjust them out to add camber (most likely). With mine, I have a 2" drop, and it takes about 6 turns to even them out. However everyones will be a little different. I suggest getting it close, then taking your car in and having an alignment done, they will adjust it accordingly. See comparison below.

7) Grease the spindles of the new Control Arm (grease provided).

8) Install Control Arm in reverse order of removal. You may need a hammer and a block to get the Lower spindle arm back in place, however the upper goes in easy with a little wiggling.

Any questions email tronix@teamcelica.com
