View Full Version : wheel alignment+camber links?
04-16-2003, 02:36 PM
me and my friend just installed the Hotchkis sway bars and Tein SS coilover kit. we lowered the car for like 2+ inches.
I noticed that the rear wheels are not parallel to my car...
do you think that I need a wheel alignment and also installing the rear camber adjustment links?

Yes, you definitely need to get an alignment.
A 2" drop should not require camber links in the rear.

Fourgig is right on. My car is dropped about 2 1/2" and was easily corrected in the back with the stock camber adjustments. Don't forget to get a complete four wheel alignment since your whole suspension was taken out to put the Tien kit on.
You will likely experience rubbing of your sway bar and your steering arms so adjust your adjustable end links to make sure they clear each other.

What they said.
Also, the service manual specifically says that the rear wheels should not be parallel to the car (only they use a much more scientific term, it's called "negative camber").
