I took my car to get aligned at toyota, and they were within toyota specs
actually the maximum negative camber allowed for the car

service guy suggested I look for a camber kit just to save some of the tires.

The front camber is adjustable through bolts. If you look in the factory service manual in the front strut section, you'll see that it shows how they can put different sized bolts in to adjust the camber. As for the rears, i think those in the link above should work.

thanks for the replies~

I called Eibach and they dont have any official camber kits for the car. BUT I suspect that the gen1.5 solara camber kit is the same.

Eibach did refer me to spcperformance.com and they offer a camber kit for the 92-2009 solaras. Guy over the phone said its the same part for both of them ..

and should anyone want to get them the cheapest place was to order from
http://www.autoexp.com/ about $30/set

both front and rear will have +/- 1.75

Im still debating on getting them since Im at odds with do I really need them? These are the TRD springs on the car which should be within factory
specs and adjustments? maybe it expect too much!?

Old thread I know, but did the camber kit fix the problem?

My 2004 Solara has camber wear on all 4 tires. I run the stock 17inch tires at the stock height. Anyone?

Have you gotten an alignment done recently? Since you're not lowered you shouldn't need the camber kit.

I have Firestone's lifetime alignment and get it checked every oil change. I'll post the specs when the misses comes home, but they claim everything is within spec. They said the same thing the last time my tires wore down to the thread as well.
