♦Quick question about the camber kit....

Do you need a camber/align kit if your just installing a spring set? Or is the align kit for after you put on coil-overs??? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>All I want to do is springs at first then rear sway bar all for handling.<p><br>Sorry never did any mods. to a car before <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

Rear camber's generally enough to chew tires pretty quick in our cars. It's not adjustable, which is why we put the adjustable arms on. Any lowering will require it equally, unless you get tires for free. It wouldn't even be a terrible idea to put them on a stock-height car, but if you're lowering, do it at the same time to only pay for one alignment.

That's a good deal. I'm always scared of getting just one control arm. A lot of places are doing that now. Just show the price for one.

I had a T5 AWD with Heico springs, never got around installing the camber kit but had no problem with camber wear. My tires were the stock ones and Falken ZE-912. Both had even wear throughout the tread.<p>Bear in mind that it was the Heico AWD springs, so it wasn't as low as Eibach or Evolve.

Re: (chendawg)

Typical, with higher demand and minimal suppliers they can jack up the price. They now only have to produce ONE arm that works on multiple cars. Once they figure out its a volvo they can increase the part per the standard european manufacture mark up <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
