J Power camber kit

hey everyone, earlier today, I installed my $44 camber kit from ebay and wow! it actually corrected my camber! i believe my car is running @ 3" drop..going by my previous allignment readout. my ride height is currently 23" from the ground in all four corners of the car..

im gonna drop the car down to 22.5" ride height sometime before i get my new allignment this week and hopefully i can get some pics!

i kno expensive kits come with a certain part to correct the rear, but the kit i bought corrects the rear camber.. kinda ghetto by using washers on the rear upper control arm! and dont know if any of you already kno that..it sounds ghetto..but it seriously corrects the camber! im not too concerned about the rear, theres not enough weight back there to eat up tires, but my car is not a rear engined Ferrari with negative camber in the rear, and positive in the front! so i want all my tires to look corrected!

You still feel the same way about this kit? Any problems with it since u bought it? Cuz I just bought one... I figure anything is better than what I have (nothing) and I have serious camber problems, mainly the front... Dont wanna wear my new tires out too soon... And any old alignment shop will know how to adjust these right?

Yo buddy, this is a very old post! hahaha! Well, its a camber correction kit, so its non adjustable. But I can tell you this..Im now running a 2" drop, and I'm sitting on Falken Azenis, and the inner lining of my tires have great tread. The car has seen 2 allignments since the installation of the camber kit. first allign, was when the camber kit was installed, and then the 2nd allignment-about 2 months ago when I switched from those poo coilovers to the Progress springs, Here's some old pics of my camber correction kit. Fromt then rear... and installation was a walk in the park! I'll help you thru this one mang, just keep me posted! Roughly, you'll be running about -1.5 degrees of camber, which is said to be great for the street. And its great on your tires too! ..Before the camber kit, i was running -2.5 degrees

Yup, just bolt it on! When you get the allignment done, they may ask you, "Do you have a camber kit?"...simply tell them its a "CAMBER CORRECTION KIT, DO NOT FU** WITH IT"..
