Camber is ruining one tire

My front right tire is showing threads after about 3 months on brand new tires so I took it in and found that i have a -3 degree camber on that tire, I was told I need new ball joints to adjust the camber back to normal but I was wondering if this would be a good opportunity to just upgrade my suspension. my question is, do I replace my currently broken ATTS and just get the ball joints or redo the suspension and forget the ATTS until I have the money for it?

Re: Camber is ruining one tire

make sure no components are bent either. if it is only happening to one wheel there might be something a little more serious.

inspect your car before making any financial decisions.
best of luck

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Camber is ruining one tire

ball joints will **** your life up, one of mine was bad and i kept driving on it, busted my tire, rim, and damaged my wheel bearing, so i stopped driving due to a flat tire, ordered a moog ball joint, rented the ball joint press tool from autozone for free, and did it myself. bought a set of rims and tires for $50 2 of them useable, got the 2 rear wheel bearings, and installed them myself (hub assemblys) so all together i paid around $190 to do all this myself (including wheels) and got the experience doing it, instead of paying a shop over $600 (no quote, just my guess) to do it for me...

dont wait, i could have replaced the ball joint sooner, but ended up causing myself more damage in the long run...
