    Question Are camber bolts normally required of the front of a lowered Vec?

    During my holiday next week I will be replacing my inner track rods and track rod ends. I'll then be going to get the car 4 wheel aligned so should I buy some eibach camber bolts just incase?

    The car is only lowered 30mm (15mm as it's an sri)

    Other question is I have 4 new tyres to fit, should I fit them before the alignment or after? Reason being that I have an 80 mile trek to the alignment place and I wouldn't want to ruin the new tyres within a day of fitting

    Fit tyres after so you know everything is ok first

    I would get the tyres fitted at the alignment centre, best if set up with the new ones.

    80 miles wouldnt wreck new tyres, you will have a nice square, flat tyre for them to work from.

    I don't think they have tyre fitting services there. All they do is 4 wheel alignment

    Also I want my usual tyre fitter to fit them as he looks after my wheels

    I've never had tyre wear or droning on the fronts so I'd imagine not and mines on a 40mm drop...

    The rears on the other hand...
