    Default Is the GSi supposed to have loads of camber out on the rear wheels ?

    because mine has. I picked my GSi up last night, but in the drive this morning just noticed that therer is loads of camber angle on the rear wheels. I'm aware tha the Vectra C is known to scrub the inner edge of the rear tyres to to the design of the suspension setup, but how bad is it supposed to be.
    I'll try to get some pictures up later so you can judge for yourselves.

    There is a noticeable bit of camber angle on the Vec C / Signum - especially on models with lower suspension. Mine was more noticeable after my Irmscher suspension was fitted which lowered it 30mm.

    Pics would certainly help to see if yours looks 'normal'

    Ah yes, that's where I remember the name from - you being on VS. That was fun wasn't it?!! Hairing down that short runway to get to a max speed and then stomping on the brakes to stop in time before the runway ran out and the grass started!!

    Edit: Yours was the estate with NOS then?

    Well remembered. There's a chance that I'll NOS the new GSi too, unless the chipped 3.2 guys on here can convince me otherwise.

    Ideally I'd love to got for a chip AND NOS, but you can't run both together as NOS relys on the manufacturers ECU map as being the safest, but I could still probably ft NOS in a single day (but not until the warranty runs out though).

    My Standard SRi runs quite a noticeable bit of negative camber on the rears, so I guess it's just the way it is.

    Any idea if it's been lowered? The camber gets more extreme the lower you go.
