That link says the eccentric fits and Bus but the application chart says it does not. I wouldn't buy without getting clarification from the seller.

Thanks for catching that! I e-mailed Limebug in the UK for clarification! Shame on you

I would call these folks in the USA and verify they are in stock.

Those look exactly like the ones from Limebug, the edge of the bottom-side of the hole is about the same distance from the edge of the conical surface.

And same with all these, below, yet none of them claim it's for "lowered" situations to correct non-stock camber scenarios. So either ALL of these are offset even more than OE, or Limebug is full of beans. I'd like to see a stock OE eccentric, but mine are installed so I can't access them.
I'm beginning to think I'm stuck with slightly negative camber on my '64 Bus front end.

Mostly for the boys and girls overseas: I heard back from Limebug, the Type I eccentrics are gold, the bay Type II eccentrics are silver (at least in their case). They also stated that the product description is correct, the compatibility chart is an error.

The big question remains, as to whether they are truly offset more than OE parts to enable a bit more camber to adjust out of the negative region on lowered Bay front-ends.

spend the money and let us know. My guess is that they are the same as everyone else has. A lot of people just say whatever you want to hear to make a sale these days. I run into it all the time.
