Re: Camber Kit- uneven wearing of tires for the front two... (yaridong)

Odds are if you are having terrible uneven tire wear in the front its due to toe not camber, even with a lowered S40 i havent seen camber out of spec on our hunter rack. I would recommend having your alignment checked first. The rear camber kits dont hurt especially for long distance drivers. Negative camber shifts the contact patch of the tire to the inside which causes the inner half of the tire to wear faster than the outter.

it was definitely an alignment issue. no camber kit is necessary. <p>after some discussion i realized that volvos do not require camber kits unless you have dropped the car past the 2-2.5 inch mark.<p>btw the tires were wearing out on the inside.
