the camber in the rear is really bad...it ate up ALL the tread on my rear tires in just 9 months. wtf. i'm going to invest in something to fix that nasty camber, but i was wondering what's the difference between camber bolts and plates. i heard the plates are better. which do you all recommend. any hints where i can order them for a decent price? thanks

camber plates USUALLY allow for more adjustment than bolts

Stillen has camber bolts for around $50. I had them but never on. They adjust 2 degrees. Camber plates give the more adjustments.

so you're saying that if my rear tires are wearing evenly i dont need a camber kit at all? my front tires look brand new and there's no negative camber

I say why mess with a good thing. If the back is the only bad part, just fix that. The bolts come in pairs, so you can just get the 2 for the back.

Ask Alex, that's where I got mine.




You might want to go and get a good alignment and have the toe checked. As Rick will vouch for, you toe in/out being too far off can really eat up tires.

Toe in, toe out. If the wheels are pointing exactly straight, you have 0 degrees of toe in. If they both are pointed in, you have some degrees of toe in. This is toe in, the bottom is the back of the car, / \

Toe out is the wheels pointing outward, \ / , again, the bottom being the back.

The toe can be adjusted when you get it aligned, well, anytime, but they should check and adjust your toe in when getting it aligned.
