Hi, I would like to make the front spacers, but I can not do without a drawing that would be right to weld the upper part of the spacer to the bottom, in the right ratio. As in the photo above. 2 " Forester sg5. If someone can help me, I will be very grateful.

Hello everybody!
I would like to have such spacers with camber and caster offsets, but I can not order it from my country. However, I think I'm able to make it myself if I had some drawings or camber/caster offset parameters. Please help me, can't find any good info about that.

just take normal straight spacers diagram and then shift top plate to one side. i couldnt find that myself so i just made it as i thought and camber was fixed. just shift it as much as you can i could about 70mm to one side from original bolts and that was enough to fix camber .

70mm ??? You probably wanted to write 7mm....

Caster is important too, so a few mm towards the back is also to be considered.

Exactly, I want to fix caster. So I just need to move one of the plates towards the back and outside? It seems it is necessary to rotate a little bit also..

I have'nt done any lift blocks on my Forester but I know the principle of the geometry !

To fix caster, you need to weld the lower plate towards the rear of the car. To fix camber, you need to weld the lower plate towards the middle (inside) of the car. If you go for 1" lift, all this is not necessary but it is for a 2" lift.

Not sure you need to rotate anything though as I can't see any reason for it (or maybe just to gain a few mm of camber because the lower plate comes too close to the inside of the wheel arch)

Yes 7mm. That all i could move more would be even better. I just visualised its its my head and moved
And you need fix camber here not caster , caster its fine there did aligment and all just fine. How could you change caster by rotation anyway? But yes i saw that they rotate them on newer models.
Generally just move them like this
