yep i had the alignment one week after the drop...the rear camber is out of spec on the HandR's but the guy said its ideal to buy the camber kit if I buy 19" tires...really he said its not that much out of spec and if I kept my tires properly inflated and rotated i shouldn't have a problem...on another note, the front tires just came from the rear...i would say they had about 2.5mm of tread and now its about 1mm...that's a hell of a lot of tread wear in one month:eek:...Shyne:king:

That's quite a bit of tread wear, how much have you been driving around? How hard have you been driving? What kind of tires do you have now?

The wheel parameters that change with a drop are just camber and toe. Do you feel your car pulling to the left or right? Is it more difficult to turn one way than another? Maybe your left and right or front and rear toe aren't matched properly.

no my car drives perfectly straight...the guy with the alignment used a laser guided alignment...best you can buy...the fronts before alignment were toed in so bad that after one week of drop the inner portion of the front tires were almost bald...i was happy i got it aligned...the rear camber is .4 out of spec, but you can go +/- 1 and have no problem, it just bothers some mechanics...i have been driving hard and i guess thats the price you pay for extreme handling capabilites that goes along w/spring upgrades...well, i don't know what to do but watch and see how bad it gets again after rotation...the rear has about 2mm of tread left...Shyne:king:
