Huh? No change?

So I put TRD springs in the Day after Christmas when the world was at the Day after Sale. Anyways, Saturday, post day after Christmas I went to have my alignment done. Very Surprisingly they didn't have to touch the camber AT ALL. eek Is this possible? wtf I do have bigger tires than stock. Does that effect it at all?

TRD springs aren't enough to require a camber kit.

I believe you need a 2" drop for that

Uh, not talking about camber, talking about wheel alignments and a camber ADJUSTMENT.

Uh, thats what I am talking about too. Your alignment won't be effected, nor will your camber, unless you drop more than 2" (I believe that is the #)

A camber kit is used to correct the camber tongue

if the shop who did your spring install marked exactly the position of your shocks when they did the swap, they can re install everything with exactly (or very close to) the same positions that your previous setup was at.

Also, some shops automatically align your wheels as part of the install... Glendale Toyota (where I got my FULL system installed), would have done a full alignment to my system if they had the correct setup - instead they gave me a $100 discount and told me where I could take my car with it's 18"/40 profile wheels/tires to have it done at... the shop that did it for me, mentioned that the suspension was already pretty close to factory specs since the installation was done by a professional thumbsup
(i went to a different place than what GlenToyo recomended... a place that I have gone for all of my wheel needs)

Woohoo, I'm a pro! Not. But I did do the spring change myself.
