Camber Plate/Shock Mount

Recommended Posts

I had an annoying squeak start front drivers side when turning the steering wheel to the left. This squeak was shortly followed by a squeak developing over bump.  I read the forums and tried the suggestions of grease this and that ... check this and that. ... until I finally bit the bullet and pulled the shock out and found the Camber Plate/Shock Mount bushing was shot.


Easy DIY if you have the tools. After going to the dealership to find they do not stock Camber Plate/Shock Mounts for MY2001 C4 which amazes me since it crosses multiple years of 911's.  But I digress  ...


After lifting car remove front carriage tray


Remove wheels


Disconnect sway bar both sides


Remove brake caliper from side/sides you are working on and tie off


Disconnect CV Joint from side/sides you are working on


Loosen Camber Plate/Shock Mount and let drop slowly


Swing strut out


Remove strut bolt and slide strut out


Use spring clamps to compress spring and impact wrench to remove shock nut


Pull Camber Plate/Shock Mount


Separate from bearing ( good time to clean and re-grease bearing)


Re- assemble in reverse order ...


Just under 3 hours cuz it was my first time ...


More fun than an oil change!!!
