I am trying to find the spacing of the 4 rear spindle studs.  I am looking to zero out the toe on the rear of my CRX and am trying to see if the shims for a Honda Fit might work.  Flat shims that allow you to adjust toe as well as camber. If anyone has a rear spindle off that they could measure I appreciate it.

Measured up an axle I have.  Rectangular shape, 45mm short side (almost vertical) and 74 mm long side (almost horizontal).  There is a rake so that the rectangle slopes down at about 17 degrees front to back - ie down towards the tube of the axle. That is measured with a protractor and aligning to the panhard rod stud on the axle tube.

This does make shims a more interesting exercise than if it was a flat attachment, particularly for toe.

Thanks that seems very small from what I remember. The Honda Fit has a spacing of 4.5 horizontally between the top or bottom studs.  Measure vertical between the studs it’s 4.25 in.  Here’s a link to what they look like.  Decades ago they made this for our cars, now it’s either washers or plastic disks.  Was hoping the spacing might be similar enough to use.
