Posting on behalf of a work mate, his 200 model fairlane ghia IRS is gone out of alignment balding his inside tyres and blowing passanger side tyre,

Are ther camber kits to suit the IRS to fix this problem or is there a solution to the mis alignment.

Surely there's some factory adjustment there already to shim up?
Checked the Nolathane, Whiteline, Kmac or other suspension component manufacturers to see if they do an aftermarket camber kit for the IRS?

You wont be able to tell by just looking at the wheels, if the bushes are worn it will have excessive toe in under power and toe out on deceleration. A mate at work has the same problem on his Fairlane.
