Hiya
Just got some new lowered springs put in my ba
and its so good now:)
but the pedders guy said i will eventually have to put
in a caster/camber kit which will cost about $700 otherwise i will start wearing out
my front tyres quicker.
Is this it necesary or is he trying to make more money?
Any thoughts?
thanks

The camber difference is a bit over the top, is there any thread on the retaining nuts for the upper control arm left? If so, how much?

Also $700 for a camber kit is a right royal rip off! I got my front camber kit supplied and installed for $200

$700 must come with a 2hr full service at the local bordello!

Is there more to it like fitting some new ball joints or tie rods or what not?

It doesn't take too long to fit the kit. What sort of kit is it, shim or ratchet type?

Cheers
