 Post subject: Camber is messed
PostPosted: Mon Sep 17, 2001 6:19 pm 
I am in need of a new set of tires before winter comes, but my camber is off and the inside of my front tires are getting badly worn out, anyone know how to go about fixing this so that i dont waste my money on new tires. <p></p><i></i>

I bought a 1 degree + or - camber bolt kit for my<br>front struts. After I lowered the car a wimpy 1.6",<br>and having the alignment tested and adjusted, it<br>was well within spec. I might still use it to _add_<br>some negative camber in the future though.<br><br>I bought my kit from AlignCraft in Ontario, Canada.<br>It's mailorder only. I live in canada and it cost me<br>like $52CDN.<br><br>Try http://www.alighcraft.com ...<br><br>Ignore the rear strt camber kit they list for the<br>Swift as it is a website typo/mistake. There is no<br>bolt kit for the rear on out cars.<br>I believe Whiteline in Austrailia makes a bushing kit<br>to adjust the rears...<br><br><br>So to answer your question, you need a camber kit<br>and then you need an alignment.<br>Or better yet, you need you alignment checked, then<br>you MIGHT need a camber kit, or worse a body <br>straightening...<br><br><br>Darryl <p></p><i></i>

That's right on the website address.<br>AND now that you mention it, yeah the suzuki link<br>is busted. Here is the page with the Swift part<br>numbers on them:<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.aligncraft.com/cars/suzuki.html">www.aligncraft.com/cars/suzuki.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>Be aware that the page is wrong in stating a camber<br>kit for the rear of the Swift. The rear on the swift<br>cannot use an eccentric cam like the fronts can.<br><br>Darryl <p></p><i></i>
