    You might give DAP Rapid Fuse All Purpose a try. It's in the cyano-acrylic family, but more of a gel, and works a lot better than the typical "super glue". If you hold it under pressure for 30...

    My experience with camber, on this and other rack and pinion cars, is that if it is too positive there is diminished steering feel and return, which is one of the reasons I messed with it myself...

    While spec apparently allows for up to 0.6 positive camber, which might be OK if only consideration is tire wear, I've found the steering feel is definitely better with negative camber.
