Can someone tell me exactly what needs to be done in the front and the back to make sure the wheels sit at the right angle?

I've heard there's a lot of problems with lowering the VX as far as the camber angles are concerned and I just need to know exactly what the deal is.

I have an Executive series 2 VX station wagon - it's the stock height at the moment, I was just going to lower it with King Spring lows.

You'll need a camber/castor kit for the rear,the front will be ok.However you won't completely establish a staight rear wheel without some modification to the swing arm.

Series 2 have toe adjustment.

Which is sufficient for lowering your car to the level of lows.

Anything beyond that and you'll need another 2 point kit.

No the VX Series 2 doesn't have a camber kit.

They had an extra linkage arm on the irs added.

Lowering any further than lows you will need a 2 point kit

thought the VX II control arm was good up to Super Lows?

Tho I have a VX S, would that make the difference?
