I have camber kits front and back . I did not do it for the tires . It helps while cornering . 1 1/2 Deg. front and 1.0 Deg. for the rear . It will wear your tires funny .

really? I think there is a difference and I bought new
kyb strut mounts all around too. Are you at 0 or close to it?

And stringbean the whole setup is a bit more firm but not horrible personally I'd like a stiffer ride like tokico blues or something like that

I didn't get the mounts... and i don't believe i'm at zero but if I remember correctly I'm pretty darn close... close enough for it to not make tire wear issues.

I also got the alignment at the stealership... so you know if I needed it they would have been bugging me to install it so they could screw me on labor.

BadAngel, what size wheels are you running? and does offset affect the camber? I took it to the dealership too and my buddy/service writer suggested I get a camber kit

either way i ordered a set of the Eibachs F/R

here are the part numbers if anyone wants to mess with camber?

Eibach 5.81290K Fronts
Eibach 5.81270k Rears

found them for$26 each set on Amazon.

I have 18 inch rims and Im not sure if offset affects camber... i would imagine that if u have camber issues and you screw with the offset it could make the tires wear worse because they are sticking out further or less, I know my offset isn't right because i have rubbing issues with too much weight in the car...gotta roll the fenders...
