Rear wheels tipping in with Tein S-techs?
So I just lowered my car with tein s-techs and the camber on my rear wheels is off about .25-.5 of an inch. Did anyone else have this problem, I never heard of it happening with tein. I'm getting an allignment tommorow. I'll post pics later. Thanks.

when I was lifting up my car with the car lift, I noticed that my front wheel looked like it was moveing when the car body was going up . it was weird . I have prokit springs if that makes any difference. I'm thinking about teking it to NTB to have it looked at , I have 5 year allignment and I'm sure they wouldn't mind takeing a look at it.

When you lower the car, especially 2+", the camber to the tires will change. They WILL angle in ( something like: / \ ), like mine. That is why you have to buy Camber Links (Hotchkis) to correct it. And with the comment to the car being lifted and the wheels angling out, that is also normal, once the car is lowered, the tires should return to normal. Unless the movement U R talking about is shaking, if so, U R screwed.

Any lowering spring will add negative camber to the back wheels alot. That's just the way it is with double-wishbone suspensions.
