You can adjust the camber slightly. I don't have a diagram on hand, but there is a bolt that you can adjust. I believe that it is only a 1 or maybe 2 degree adjustment. But there is a little you can do.

can't you only adjust the camber in the rear. i understood that you didn't need to buy any parts for the rear camber when you lowered your car but in order to adjust the camber in the front after lowering you must buy camber plates.

It depends on the camber adjustment that you need. For most lowered cars you will not need the rear camber plates. However, for the H&R cup kit for instance, to get 0 camber you would need camber plates.

As for the front... I don't think lowering mine put any significant camber on the front.... only the back.

But yes, my appologies... only for the rear is correct. I usually think of camber problems in the rear, not the front.
