Alignment problems!!!!

So I lowered my car about five months ago. I used the eibach anti-roll kit, the eibach pro kit with tokico d-spec shocks and struts and caster camber plates. I went to have it aligned and told the service writer and the tech what I had. I just realized my front tires are wearing on the inside of the tire.

Re: Alignment problems!!!!

I would assume, after a certain height, the camber can only be adjusted be so much since it squats. I would think that you can still adjust it enough to reduce, not completely eliminate, uneven wear some more.

Yea I was just thinking that I got it aligned right after I lowered it, now that the springs have settled I'll have to take it back : /. But with the caster/camber plates it's supposed to zero out.

Wut size tire u running? I know wen I got my new wheels the guy at discount tire told me not to go wot the 245/35/18 I wanted. Instead he recommended me a 255/40/18 tire in the front. Told me that if I did go wit wut I wanted to weight of the engine would cause the tire to wear on the inside. So I went wit wut he said.

I have a 255-35-20. I think it's the lack of ability and comprehension of English between me and the "tech" that did it the first time.

When they aligned your car did they give you a print out? There is a possibility your springs settled more since the alignment and you gained some excessive negative camber. Most shops guarantee their work for 6 months and will fix it for free.
