    Default whos lowered and bothered fitting camber kit?

    Im noticing since lowering 35mm the inners of my tyre wear quicker! From what i gather its the camber, but you can but an eibatch camber kit for around 20 pound that allows for this lower setting... has people bothered fitting this when lowered or will it entail alot to fit now the car is already lowered? Big job?

    Some of the Vecs have camber adjusters already front and rear, but apparently not all. Mine did too but the guy that did it was surprised as he didnt expect it to have.

    Demon Tweeks fitted the Eibachs to my Siggy, they did the set up afterwards. Not had any issues

    I have KW Coilovers on the VXR but never used the camber kits in the end.

    No need to unless your tyre walls are same level or below the wheel arches

    Just get it 4 wheel aligned with camber adjustment

    I had to fit front camber bolts, simply to put 1 deg neg on the front, the rear camber bolts were already on my car. The rear and thrust has to be done on a 4wheel laser rig about£70

    Defo get it done, makes tyres last longer and steering feel a lot nicer as youll have more tyre in contact with the road!
