One place has told me $400 gets me a 2 point camber kit and wheel alignment, someone else suggested that a VZ rear end is the better option however i have no idea where to find one, let alone the cost that will be involved.

The issue is the camber is seriously eating my wheels and needs to be resolved soon.

Anyone got any suggestions?

I can do you a 4 point camber kit for $175 plus postage.

The VY or VZ will do as they have adjustment, but if it is out of the range of adjustment in them you will still need a 2 point kit.

Whats the kit comprised of? Curiosity only! I replaced my left rear carrier and the replacement had an adjustable tie rod, but theres nowhere to bolt the inner end to on my VT?

Camber kit replaces the standard (soft) trailing arm bushes with firmer and adjustable ones. There are two bushes per trailing arm.

series 1 vt, no matter what i do be it a 2 point or 4 point kit ill have to pay a place to put them in.
Can anyone tell me what the difference between a 2 point and 4 point is? Im guessing that one is a better reducer of camber wear then the other?

The brand is Super Pro.
They consist of four adjustable bushes that replace the inner control arm bushes on the rear suspension. They give you toe and camber adjustment. It's not really hard to fit them, just time consuming, as you have to remove the lower control arms to fit them.
