adjustable ball joints are only camber kits what you can get into 5th gen?

Re: camber kit or adjustable ball joint

How many degrees are you +/-?

If your lowered that much, you might want to consider the Ingalls camber kit because the SPC style has a nut that sits on top that MAY hit the inside of the fender well.

Re: camber kit or adjustable ball joint

dont get ingalls, there trash. . from what iv heard. i bought my car with -4 camber in the front an the new tires were bald in 4 months so i got the spc adjustable ball joints for the front. torque spec is 120ft/lb on the top nut an absolutly no rub or knock with it an im as low if now lower. skunk2lowering springs but i actually bought the wrong kind because my camber was so bad i need the extended range ball joints but they've held up great for about the 6 months iv had em an never have come lose and iv hit some pretty wicked **** on accident and i live in wisconsin so my roads are probably worse. god damn pothole every 4 inches. but recommend spc .

I'm lowered 2.25" and I bought a set of SPC adjustable ball joints 67330 and 67360 for my 2000 base front and back.
Make sure you get alignment afterwards and you should be good.

Re: camber kit or adjustable ball joint

Sorry, I know this is random but what kind of suspension are you on and how low are you? Also are those 17 inch wheels? I want to get a feel with what I want my lude to look like! Thanks mate!

Re: camber kit or adjustable ball joint

What you need is an alignment with toes set as close to zero degree as possible. Toe is what's eating your tires. I've had mine on for a little over a year with toes aligned every 6 months. Rotated every oil change. Im running on -2 degrees camber
