Camber correction?
 
This past summer after I had my car lowered I took it to a shop in Cincinnati (Performance Alignment) for a four wheel alignment. This is a very reputable shop that comes highly recommended from my tech.

The shop did the alignment and afterwards suggested that I get front and rear camber correction kits because they could not get the camber and toe adjusted exactly right.

I was going to get camber kits this summer when I get my new shocks (they cost 530 for front and rear) but, I haven't seen anyone on either UB.c or BF.c that has them.

So here is my question...

Do you think the kits will be necessary w/ just H&R sports, Bilstein sports, and wider tires?

Every thing points to no, except these damn professionals! :wtf

Thanks in advance for the help,
Matt

So is there a need for these camber correction kits?

Storamin 01-11-2006 06:18 PM

Yes, when you're planning to track the car and want to dial in extra camber. Other than that, not really. You might need one if you drop the car too much to fix it back to BMW spec, though.

yea there from the rear, the fronts wear down fine.
My rears eat up from the inner side of the tire, too much negative camber. After the H&R's the stock " Arms ill call um just are doing it no more. So ive been looking all over and it seems like the adjustable ones are the way to go.
