Hey guys. I just got the tein springs and have been trying to figure out if you need a camber kit. Some people say that you don't need one, that the factory camber is able to be adjusted. Others say to go get the cusco kit and stay clear from OBX. If I don't need to go out and get a kit and spend some money doing it, I rather not. please help.

I have a 2 finger gap in the rear and have 1.4 degrees negative camber on coilovers. Car corners better than ever.

Dude, you should be cool on the alignment. Get it done first and then you can see. Which tein's?

Yeah I have the stech springs. I talked with my buddy who also just got the springs and he says his car turns like a dream. I looked and he will be needing tires in about a few weeks. I'm like the fact that the car will turn nice, But I’m not liking the fact that if I don't figure this out, I'm going to need a new job to buy tires a lot.

Yeah the toe will wear your tires out alot on the inside edges moreso than the camber will.

So.... can the toe be adjusted?
Yes. An alignment shop should be able to take care of this for you.

I took my car to an alignment shop last year and the guy told me that I might need to get a new camber kit because it is broken. One of my inner tires in the front is wearing out quicker than the outer part. Which camber kit do you guys suggest?

Stock. The only way it could be "broken" is if they somehow bent the washers(cams).
