Re: camber kit

I believe Sprint & SPC make those kits for our gen' also, but i think they're required if your drop's more than 2", not sure

Re: camber kit

no kit is required... i have a 1.5 drop and i have ZERO uneven wear.. it just depends really if you NEED them or you want them to tuning reasons such as autocross and such

Re: camber kit

i have to ask, why do you need it JUST for the rear? why is the rear off and not the front? are you lowered? you're missing a LOT of info.before you even think about buying a camber kit, you should realize first off, 9 times out of 10 a camber kit is bought for the wrong reason. the point of camber kits is NOT to correct bad camber. its for fine tuning camber. some negative camber is desired. in fact most ALL (if not, all) production cars are tuned with some negative camber from the factory.

in short. you probably don't need it. even if you're lowered, a simple alignment SHOULD fix any excessive camber (unless you are more then 2.5-3 inches, which is ****in stupid if you ask anyone anyways, then you might need one). if you're lowered less than 2 inches, and an alignment doesn't get it at least CLOSE to the factory specs, you got a bigger problem on your hands. something else is causing bad camber. a camber kit is only a band aid in situations like you saying you only need it JUST FOR THE REAR... why JUST the rear? is the rear sagging? give us more info. i'd hate for you to get a camber kit and it doesn't fix the real problem.

Regardless of if you need it or why, Ingals is the way to go.

Re: camber kit

Re: camber kit

Well in that case, you might need one. Generally, 1.5" is the limit, but a lot of people can drop a bit more with no problems. You just might not be one of those.
Is it wearing more on the inside or outside?
