What is a camber?

I saw a camber corection kit and I was wondering what it is or does. I was also wonder if anyone has this kit.


Thanks!

camber is when your wheels point in or out... /[ ]\
\[ ]/ or ... you know you've seen the honda;s like that.


for future reference... caster, is how the suspension stuff line up with the wheel... for example, or struts are about 90 degrees... or strait up, but on on ferrari's and car's that tend to go fast for a longer period of time, imagine the struts and springs being on an angle, pointing towards the rear of the car.

and toe, is if the tires point in or out like your turning when you're just driving strait.

does that make sense... thumbsup

it's more likely that they'll point inward: /[ ]\
the camber correction kit is used to allign your wheels so that they are at a right angle with the ground. this isn't really a Performance mod... it's almost always necessary when lowering your car... otherwise your tires will bald quicker on the inside...

if the camber is bad enough...it wears you tires down unevenly and causes you more money in the long run than just buying a correction kit thumbsup
