Can you adjust rear camber on stock suspension?
Yes, you can adjust camber with the camber bolts on the front suspension; the amount you can adjust is limited, but it can be done; however, I would recommend taking it to a shop for a proper alignment. And you are correct that the rear camber on the stock suspension cannot be adjusted.
What do adjustable camber arms do?
Extra negative camber allows the tire to lean into the vehicle, allowing it to fit into the wheel well tighter and thus allowing you to lower the vehicle. While exaggerated, see the photo below for an example of how this can work.
Can you adjust camber without camber kit?
No, a camber kit is not required; most tire wear is caused by incorrect toe settings. When you lower your car, you gain negative camber, which causes your toe settings to change as well.
Can camber be adjusted?
Depending on the vehicle and its suspension, there are a variety of ways to adjust camber: cam bolts, eccentric washer bolts, turn-buckle joints, or shim adjustments.
What causes camber misalignment?
Camber misalignment can be caused by a variety of factors, including an accident, sagging springs that cause a change in ride height, and worn or defective ball joints or other attached parts.
Will camber wear out tires?
Camber can cause a pull, but it does so by being different from side to side, not by being extremely negative or positive; however, a difference in camber from side to side will not cause tire wear; only extreme amounts of camber, negative or positive, will cause tire wear, but it will be relatively slow.
Can you camber on stock suspension?
The best bang for your buck in handling, especially with stock suspension, is an out of spec alignment. You don’t need the camber kit in the rear, but you do need it in the front with stock suspension.
Can you adjust stock suspension?
Although you can’t adjust the rebound or compression, the stock suspension performs admirably for average-sized riders who don’t abuse it.
How much camber is on a stock suspension?
On stock bolts, normal camber is around 1.2 degrees, but with additional camber bolts (top and bottom), you can get up to 2 degrees.
Do you need camber arms for lowering springs?
You don’t need the camber arms if you can live with more camber in the rear than in the front. The rears will have roughly 1.5 degrees of negative camber on the pro kit or 2 degrees on the sport line springs, while the fronts will have somewhere between 0.5-1 degrees of camber.
Is camber bad for your car?
Improper camber can cause the tire to wear on one edge and cause the vehicle to pull to the side with the most positive camber. Zero camber will result in the most uniform tire wear over time, but may reduce cornering performance.
How much does it cost to adjust camber?
Most mechanics will charge between $150 and $200 for this service, but this is not a hard and fast rule; a mechanic may charge more for particularly complicated cars or those that require specialized equipment.
