My car is lowered 60mm (done a few months ago), took a wheel off the front and the inside dege is badly worn (wheels and tyres are a few months older than the suspension).
I had heard about the camber being wrong when the car is lowered but not to this degree (im at uni and dont do many miles, probably under 1500 since putting the suspension on), now after looking through some threads on here im thinking that maybe the tracking might be resposbile (more so than the camber), and will go get it checked tomorrow (i didnt get it done after lowering it)
Whats your thoughts and what like are the adjustable camber kits, i know Regal do them (what thay cost ?, got a feeling its dear)
its definately the tracking mate. when you lower the car the angle of the track rods changes. Instead of being paralell with the steering rack they now point in a sort of wide v shape. This will then make the wheels point outwards slightly, sort of trying to steer right and left at the same time. get the tracking done, you will also notice totally transformed handling afterwards.
OK here is a cheap way to adjust the camber on your nova!! Un bolt the shock from the hub and then file out the top hole that bolts to the hub. This then allows you to adjust the camber but it will still need a alignment check but will save you the 85 quid for the kit.
The above method is only of use when you need small amounts of adjustment as you obviously can`t remover too much from the hole
