Re: why do people camber their ride?

Dion hit it on the head, also use the search function to find answers to your questions first. There is a cornucopia of knowledge on this site. Read the thread and then post questions in that thread if you have any.

This will also bring the older questions back up for other new owners.

Re: why do people camber their ride?

I think originally that started when the swing-axle cars (like old VW's) were lowered which resulted in unavoidable camber change. It improved the roadholding during hard cornering. And so it became cool. Besides the look that some people find desireable, it allows for wider than otherwise would be possible tires/rims to be used since with negative camber they tuck inside the fender without rubbing.

That's what I always thought. It started as a means of lowering a car further and improving handling, and today it's more of a style thing.

Re: why do people camber their ride?

I think you should be your own trend setter and be the first to run positive camber on your ride.

Don't give yourself a headache thinking about that one, James.

It takes an effort to do the work...
