AUTO WHERE ARE YOU!
my options get the tms adjustable to fix the problem i have (im running eibachs right now) and after that save up for some h&rs, or just buy h&rs (if you think that will get rid of my bad camber?
I have Ireland Engineering adjustable control arms and those work great. They are so easy to adjust once you have the car jacked up. I'm a dealer for them if you're interested in their products.
Anyways, my opinion would be to scrap the Eibachs and get yourself some H&R springs. The main reason the camber is so bad is because the springs sag. When I first had the Eibach springs, the camber was fine. After 1 winter and 1 summer season, the camber was way out of spec. Not only do the springs sag, they seem to sag inconsistently. One side had -2.5 degrees and the other side had -2.8 degrees. That would explain why one side was higher than the other side.
I think H&R makes a cheap fix solution for the front. They are called Triple C camber adjustment bolts (which looks similar to what you have in the first pic). They are like $30 for the set. You should look into those. IE also has some pretty cheap camber plates. As for the rear, the adjustable control arms are your best bet.
Here's a video of my car with the Eibach springs. Look how low it is!!!! After my -2.8 degree camber reading, the springs still seemed to be sagging even more. People ask me if I run race springs when infact they are the Eibach pro kits. I sold them to some bloke for $100 and bought myself some H&R's, much happier and my camber instantly got better. I'm at a much more acceptable - 2.1 degrees now. http://www.automobile-technik.com/Bryan318Peelout.avi
where are the links to the H&R 30$ camber fix things? Also do you think if i put different springs on my car right now my camber might get a little better? also do you think i have any chance of getting it fixed just by going and trying to get it aligned.... i guess i can go in there and ask... how hard was it for you to install your adjustable control arms?
