dont get a wheel alingment done by ur average joe eg tyre power or bob jane or any one like that as more often than not they set the car back to factory settings.... this problem usto happen to me and my car is lowered with camber kit too i changed when the place i went to left the camber nuts loose i wish my work had wheel aling machince but they dont so i take mine to a suspension specialist (wilkinsons suspension which are good guys and only charge 30 for e series and give u a full read out of before and after settings) and havnt had a problem since.

good point might have to find a specialist, ive been to at least 4 different places to try to get it fixed.

i ony let pedders do the adjustments. $40 (trade price 8-) ) and they do the alignment and they go over the suspension and give a report at the end too.

i have to many f**k stiks not do the allignment properly and end up with uneven tyre wear
