I have just installed the PN lower and upper arms, upper having 1 deg of camber. Now when I put the shell on it locks the front wheels on the shell. I am running the mclaren f1 gtr yellow corn shell. Any one with any ideas how to stop this. Also 1 def offset on the front.

Do you think that it is due to camber, or ride height? Do you have spacers underneath the knuckles? If so, try moving them over the knuckles so the knuckles are down as low as they can be. From my understanding, the PN lower tower essentially lowers the chassis a little. So you may need to adjust the knuckle spacers a little, or raise the height on the body via front clip...

Ah wondered if it was maybe a hight issue instead. Will try your suggestions cheers.

So let me get this right. I need to shim the pin above the steering knuckle in order to lower the position of it and in tirn moving the wheel away from the shell ?

Correct. Shim under the knuckle to lower the chassis, above to raise while keeping the height of the upper arm the same...
