Default Alignment and camber adjustments

Hi. I just put on h&r lowering springs on my np. I noticed that the tires are out of alignment and camber especially at the rear. I went to different shops but to no good results. They said that some bushings are already stuck up.
Can anyone give tips on how to properly align the tires? Thanks

normally when you lower the susspension from stock the wheels will get a negative camber just like having 6 big guys in the back of car , you have the bottom of wheels sticking out and the tops in. the pajero does have adjustable camber bolts to set correct camber also castor adjustmens.
how much lower is this now ?

Its about 2" lower now. They're saying that the bolts and bushings are stuck up that's why they can't adjust it. Is there any remedy to this?

Just out of curiosity mate, why would you want to lower your Pajero?
cheers

It's not unusual for the adjusters to seize. Lots of penetrating oil and a big spanner are the usual remedy. Some have had to drill them out. Take it to a good engineering workshop for advice.

You will need new bushes.

Yes, but it may not be enough. Soak it, then soak it again, then soak it again...

you might need to have heat applied to these seized [ stuck up ] bolts if the WD-40 don,t work. maybe you should take the car to a good mechanical place that has oxy gear / rattle gun plus a wheel alignment specialist.
just be very very carefull working under this type of car as there not light and can kill if something gives .

Penetrene used to be the go years ago, these days I use Inox, Aussie made and superior to WD40.
