I FINALLY FOUND ONE!!!

http://www.abtivan.com/obx/obx_camberkits.htm

its the OBX chamber kit. I dont know if they're really good quality but i just placed an order on them. NO MORE TIRE WEARING!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

i had the 2 Inch drop and my sound system made the rear tires wear even more even with alignment. haha ill tell you how it turns out when i install it. ive found a deal for the front and rear for 45 brand new on ebay. or you can order it from their website ... its around 65 total with shipping for front and rear.

for the 150th time, the IS300 has a "camber kit" on the car stock. You can adjust it to any degree you want, no need to go buy anything. Any alignment shop can ajust it to what ever you want. I had -1.7, not its -0.5 I had it at 0 but I asked them to keep it at -0.5

I believe the adjustment on the car itself is limited. Mine are maxed out anyway, or says the mechanic who aligned my car.

Let us know if the OBX ones really work.

UHHH................ THE REAR TIRES ON THE IS300 DOESNT COME WITH A CHAMBER KIT.... SORRY I DIDNT SPECIFY but i was just talking about the REAR ONES........................... MY REAR TIRES are at MAX alignment and are still a little butterflied.......... AND YEH I HAVE 2.5 INCH DROP AND HAVE A HEAVY ASSS SOUND SYSTEM MAKING IT AROUND 3 INCH DROR TOTAL........ unlike your 1.7 mines 3 double yours. so i do need a chamber adjustment on my REAR TIRES which DOESNT HAVE A CHAMBER KITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

coilover only affects height and dampening... camber and toe are still affected by ride height. if your car is dumped you still probably need a camber adjustment kit if you want to save tire life.

Actually, this is true, but not on the IS300. Coilover suspension systems for other cars that use the MacPherson strut design, the Upper pillow mount allows for some camber adjustment. But since our car's are not like that, coilovers or not, the car will suffer from negative camber when lowered. It just depends on how low you want to go. I have mine set at about 1.9 inches roughly. I can fit about 1/4 of a finger in there all around. Front camber and Toe is A-OK, but the rear camber is out of wack no matter what me and alignment tech tried. The Toe is OK though, and after about 1000 miles of driving, i do not see any unusual tire wear. Hope this helps.
