Can anyone throw some light on camber kits for an XH XR6.
Ive just looked at my front tyres (15" stock) and found that the insides are starting to chew out a bit.
The tyre pressure is spot on, and so is the alignment as well as steering.
I thought maybe I need a camber kit.
I know the problem of "wheel chewing" was common on the early model XR8's (EB series), and that camber kits were supplied as stock on the EB GT's and Fairlane Ghia's too (not 100% sure about the Fairlane)
Can anyone else throw some light on the subject - or anyone know the price nowadays for a decent camber kit.

Also this may sound a bit stupid but Ive got ask - I want to bugger off the 15" tyres and rims and put on some decent 17" ones - am I going to be able to do a straight swap without any dramas?
