Camber kit ftw! Viva performance has them. BTW, i am guessing your finances are doing well since you still have your car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> Glade you still have it.

How bad is the camber? Im running -2.6 degrees in the rear and the tire wear is surprisingly even. I just rotate every 5k miles. What kind of tires are you running?

After seeing just how badly my wallet was going to get mauled (~600$), I explicitly asked them to check the alignment and they said it was fine. In my prior experience, camber and toe were included in alignments.

wtf? there is no such thing as too low. a motto we should all go by:<p>if sparks dont fly, your ride's too high.
