Collect the set they say. Added this to the quiver of torque tools. I previously borrowed one of these mainly for the CV nut, no more borrowing...

Sure looks that way, I expected prices to really soften, and they did right at first as evidenced by a lot of RNM's, but since thing things seem to have firmed up again considerably.

No Minis on BaT right now, but I'm sort of surprised the site is chugging along as usual during this pandemic.  I guess there is no person to person contact like a regular car auction so that makes is more desirable?  And perhaps some people need money and have to sell? Or perhaps others don't have any money issues at all and are bargain hunting?

So the way I do it is I took the plates I use for measuring toe, and I have one with a steel plate bolted to the face. The gauge mounts by magnets. Then I position the plate on the wheel face centered up to the hub and take my measurements.

I have the MiniSport version.
According to the KAD site:
"Each serration on the plate is worth 1/2 a degree of camber and toe is adjustable."
I wonder if this is true for the MiniSport version as well.

Without removing them I cannot tell how much I would have to grind.

The Joe's gauge would be handy, it seems. No problem getting it to attach to both front and rear hubs?

Can second the mini sport version. Very easy.  The others I tried were from mini spares.  Way over complicated

I created a new thread on the camber brackets.

I always buy the Mini sports, which are a KAD knockoff but 1/3 the price, and I have had to make the holes longer to get the toe right on my cars in the past, but I prefer that design to the MiniSpares, I've used both.

If you need a set of camber brackets I have an extra set, NIB.

I am trying to figure out if a Dremel or a new set is the better option.
The MiniSport knockoffs I have appear to have less metal to grind on.
