i just got back from hamms, had some camber taken out of the rear and it was free since i was in the 90 days.

as long as you can get onto the lift, you're good to go.

I need an alignment soon... I might have to go there Raza, thanks. I'd been looking around for one close. I went to Javi for my last alignment and I would go again except Plano might as well be on the other side of the world, such a long drive haha

Anthony, we're both running on ST Variant 1 Coilovers... Is that the least negative camber that they could take out of the rear and the front for that matter...

For the Rear I can get to 0 if I wanted too...The front will need Camber Plate...Which, is what I'm about to order in a month or so...

How can you get 0? I thought that the stock control arms couldnt be adjusted that far... Ive already blown out a tire because of the negative camber Im pushing back there... And I'm running on 17"s... Are you sure you could go to 0?

Yes, I can go to Zero. I do not have Stock Camber Arms. I have SPC/EiBach Camber Rear Arms. I am probably go back in a month to get -1.0 or -1.5 Rear Camber and run 275 rear tires. $65 out the Door. Much better then Dealer Pricing $200 Bones...

Oh yea for sure, i have a good indy like 2 blocks away and he wanted $220... Well that answers my question, I've been needing to buy rear camber arms for a while. Darn I thought you found a way out of it, I think eibach has their arms at about $150... know anywhere to get them cheaper?

And it kinda pisses me off that the ST V1s didnt come with front camber plates, wish it did
