Rear Camber Kit???

I have changed my winter tires to my summer yesterday and I noticed that on the rear my tires are worn due to excessive camber!!! I have lowered the car last year with Koni FSD kit (Eibach springs) and when I originally did the alignment I was just in spec. I am guessing that the springs sagged a bit over winter and now I have a camber issue. (the car is a 2002 325i Touring)

Are there any rear camber adjustment kits out there??? Any input about my options would be greatly appreciated.

You can adjust a bit of camber with factory components, otherwise you need up upgrade to an adjustable rear control arm.

Yes, that's my question, what kind and where to get them...

Can't go wrong with UUC!

The experts at UUC produce high quality parts for BMW enthusiasts. Though they are often much less expensive than many performance aftermarket parts, quality is not compromised. High performance racing parts and accessories from a company built by racing enthusiasts. With a full line of quality suspension, braking, and other parts, it's easy to customize your vehicle while giving a unique driving experience.

With a lowered car, non-adjustable original control arms cause unwanted negative camber as the tops of the rear tires angle in too much. This condition causes uneven tire wear and ill effects on handling.

These adjustable rear control arm correct this problem and can be tuned for any ride height, whether on a street car or a full-on race car. Adjustment range is in the +1.0 to -3.0 range.

Features Include:

* 4130 Chromoly center bar
* CNC machined billet aluminum end components
* High durometer sqeak free bushing at inboard end
* All installation hardware included

Click HERE for more information.


Please let us know if you have any questions! Feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

Best,
Joe
