Hi all,
First post, (Newbie). I have just purchased my first VT series 1 Commodore, Low K's 115,000 and in great nick. Been a Ford man for the last 20 years, and I'm a bit worried about the rear wheel camber. It has been lowered with Pedders suspension and munroe shocks. It sits on 17" wheels and the camber seems off a fair bit.
The question I have is:
Will this effect the handling and damage the rear end at all. I have noticed some VT's on the road with the same problem, so should I fit a camber Kit? ( $400 or so), or should'nt I worry about it. Thanks for your help.
By the way, my car is heaps more powerful than the old EA.

yes get a camber kit
if you dont youll oly scrub out your tyres and over 5 yrs you will end up paying way more for tyres than the camber kit
i did mine 5 yrs ago (was under 100 bux then) and best thing i ever did
ive never had a tyres scrub out
peders did mine

Yes, get the Camber/Toe kit done as it does wear the inside of the tyres out fairly quickly (as mentioned previously by daron.)

Also you will find that you have a little less traction when trying to take off. This traction problem is exaggerated in the wet.

Its normally referred to as inner and outer kits. Pedders don't normally like doing both as there is issues with diff and CV's wearing. The additional wear is due to incorrect adjustment. You use the inner kit for Toe and outer for Caster I believe (it could be the other way round so check) and If your getting it done, do both. I have had both installed and while it has helped it would benefit from more adjustment which I can't get.
