    hi after recently doing a 325 conversion on my 318, i changed the complete rear axle including diff subframe and rear trailing arms in order to upgrade from hubs to rear discs..

    at the same time i lowered it by 60mm which has given me a fair bit of negative camber, to the point where my car almost always spins when setting off in the wet..

    at first it wasnt bothering me much but seeing as tho winter is only around the corner i would rather have it setupright as it should be

    can anyone advise me on the best way to set this up?

    thanks

    You should be able to get them adjusted at an alignment centre..
    The bolts under the rear hub are offset. Those are the rear camber adjustment bolts. Just check that the tire will not rub the wheel arch after adjustment...
