Where you getting that done?

Actually come to think of it mine was $1000 but that included a camber kit as well and a wheel alignment.
I had King springs and Monroe GT Gas shocks.

If your having tyre wear problems definately worth it otherwise its a wise investment. Shim type camber kit not ratchet type. :D

Deffinantly get the camber kit as the EF, EL is bad for tyre wear. Pretty much a common problem with these models

i disagree on the tyre wear thing, ive had my king lows in for nearly 25000kms now and have perfectly wearing front tyres... no camber kit just a decent wheel alignment.

but then every car is different, may just be something you have to see what happens, but also remember that there are other things besides camber that will wear tyres unevenly

are they the lovell super lows? cause with them, then yes i'd be def getting a camber kit - i've got them on mine, and with the 15's the camber was chewing out the inside of the rims - with the 17's it looked like a V8 supercar :? def worth the money :wink:

yeh thats a point, if there superlows, i would probably go one straight away.. but if there only lows, i would be tempted to wait, as you may be spending money on something you dont need (like mine :lol: )

Anyone got a pic of an ef/el with 17's on lovell lows?
We soo need to put a database in showing the result of certain spring/shock setups on our cars.

Good price for that.

Get W.A. Suspensions to check out your camber with a wheel alignment after you do it. Each car is slightly different from factory and everyone drives differently so you may not need a camber kit (I didn't with my whiteline lows). If the tyres wear on the inside then either drive harder or get one fitted!
