is it worth putting camber kit into vr?

Is it worth the money for what it does?

I've heard allot of bad news about the camber kits yet I've heard a couple good to.
the nays i hear are from suspension places and tyre places. they say it just stuffs the pushes in the arse end and doesn't make a good enough difference for the money spent?

if its stupidly low, its gonna **** ur CV's, bushes, IRS cradle, and tyres regardless of camber kit, but yes a camber kit does help and ur tyres will last longer, and most importantly u will have maximum contact of rubber to bituman. the way i see it, its either$300 spent once on a camber kit, or $500 every 6-12 months on tyres..

they are only roughly $150 depending where u get it from, and not hard to install yourself, or prolly another $150 to get installed from somewhere.

have you spoken to a professional suspension joint at all?

What ephect said... Yes, it's worth it. Unless you're selling the car in the next 10-14 days.

ive asked 2 tyre places and 2 suspension places they both said nay. but everyone with em in there cars said they are good. thats why i put a poll up. it isnt that low anymore i got it raised today tyre just sits about inline with the guards now maybe a touch lower so guard just sits over the top of the wheels. gotta wait for springs to settle.

the reason why it was sitting to low was the half-wit that used to own cut the irs springs in the back in half SO STUPID DONT EVER ANY ONE DO IT if. so dam dangerous one of them was about 10 bumps from falling out.

sounds like ur running superlows now which is a good height for looks and u wont be scraping everywhere. go 4 point kit it'll give u the most amount of adjustment to ensure perfect alignment.
