exhuasted the search for a camber correction chart

Is there such a thing? I've been looking into a Tein coilover suspension and thinking about my alignment afterwards. I guess you can get a slotted upper arm for adjustment but will it hold. I would think vibration would take a toll of this and always cause you to have alignment issues.

Can anyone shed some light on this one. In the meantime I think I will try and call someone at Tein and ask them what (camber kits) are recommended for their set ups. You would think the makers of these suspensions would sell these along with it.

Re: exhuasted the search for a camber correction chart

Ive heard nothing but good things about Ingalls. They are pretty pricey at $260 for the front and rear, but well worth it IMO.

meh you should be fine. if you really worried about it goto firestond, they have a deal for like 150 for lifetime alignments. so you could get your alignment done/checked everyweek if you wanted for free. lol

but just btw where did you find upper a arm camber kits for our ludes????? cuz i could never find them? otherwsie i've got ingalls adjustable upper balljoints. supposed to be the way to go.

I didn't I talked to the technician at NTB where I got my Michelins and four wheel alignment done, He told me about a slotted upper arm that can be adjusted to correct the camber. I guess the tow and drag can still be done normally? Still have to do some research on the subject.

I was just told that if you have a coilover suspension you can never keep tires on your car.

I did pay $149 for the limited lifetime alignment (life of the tires) but he did say if I got the coilovers then it would void that warranty

ah ok. void your warranty? umm sounds like some bull shit to me.. well i would think as as long as you keep your tires all aligned it wouldnt matter. and btw camber isnt what will wera your tires down fast, toe in/out is what will do it.

Re: exhuasted the search for a camber correction chart

some people claim the spc balljoints are less likely to bump if you have a major (2+") drop... most claim they will still bump though...

I think the ingalls look about the same and I would not hesitate to try them next time if they are cheaper than spc... I don't think you will have any issues... some other people claim you are ****ing up you suspension geometry, but I haven't bought into that... my lude handles beautifully.

so far no alignment issues with the spc and I've had them for 2 years (front and rear)... I have no reason to regret getting them, and I recommend both brands...

Not sure but camber would look like this from the front

/ \ or \ /

pos. neg. ????


Now from top down (top forward)

/ \ tow in \ / Toe out

I would think either one would affect your alignment and tread wear.

Re: exhuasted the search for a camber correction chart

Holy S#!t , $237 for front and rear.

Add that to the $1600 for the Flex Tein Coilover set up.

2 grand in suspension OUCH!

Maybe the flex setup doesn't need the camber kit? Just wondering as it says it has camber adjustment. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks

from the front
/ \ or \ /
Neg POS

and as far as toe in/out you have it right

btw the also i wouldnt recomend buying camber kits, as much as its more work, but until after you get the flexs(or what what spring/coilovers you end up getting). Because once you get them set at the height you like, and have a alignment done, they will(should) print off a sheet telling you what your alignment specs are.
so for instance on my lude, with the amount of drop i did, i ended up having about 3 degrees of comber F/R so i had to go for the more extreme of the two options(+1.5 - +3.0 degrees). where as you might not need that to correct yours.

also its not something that has to be done right away, camber wont wear down your tires nearly as fast as having your toe in/out off. i know i just put camber kits on mine this week(sorry no pics for ya) and i dropped my lude over a year ago now.

no you will still need one to complete fix all the alignment. but if your not worried about the camber being off a lil bit. then dont worry about it for now.
