Guys who have installed TME's on V70R's:<p>Do you have a sense of how much negative camber got added when you added the springs? I am going to purchase the springs in July, and right now my rear camber is at -0.48 Left and -0.90 Right (see previous post) <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=54598&page=1" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/z...age=1</A>. Is it normal to be out half a degree left to right? Am I going to run over -1.2 on the right side? Am I going to have to futz with the subframe as JRL has indicated?<p>I realize that you would have to have a recent alignment before you put the springs on to come up with the data, but any help is appreciated.<p>Thanks.

Don't know what I was before springs. But visually, I don't have as much negative as people with Evolve/Eibach/Heico, or the guy that said he was at -2.0.<p>I would futz with the rear end BEFORE springs, that way dealer can't blame it on springs.<p>BTW, 4C disabled with TME springs and 22mm upgrade gave me best handling/ride ever on autobahn, and great handling on the ring. Seriously, is very good.

I don't know why these cars are off from side to side but I've only seen one or two that wee equal.<br>Most are off more on the right for some reason.<br>If you can get the 'worst" one to be no more than -1.5 degrees after spring install you're doing good <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> but they all are different.<br>As I said you can loosen everything up and play with the car, this usually can get you back some camber

Re: TME Springs and Rear Camber (JRL)
