Thread: Lets talk MKIV camber kits

  1. #1

    Default Lets talk MKIV camber kits

    Okay so I've always been a big believer in doing stuff right, not being like most JDM guys that buy those coilover sleeves off ebay drop them all the way down and don't even bother to get an alignment let alone a camber kit. I'm creating this thread, well because I think that Les Schwab prices are ridiculous lol so I'll go ahead and post up my quote sheet from them.

    2 Adjustable Cams 167.99 each 335.98 total
    2 alignment labor 75.00 each 150.00 total
    1 4 Wheel Alignment 83.50 each 83.50 total
    Sales Tax: 27.72
    Total: 597.20

    That is my quote sheet from Les Schwab. It seems absolutely ridiculous IMO, that's twice what I paid for the coilovers themselves! Now I don't mind paying for it, I can come up with the money eventually, possibly see if I can finance to help start my credit, but I would like to look into cheaper options. I know BFI has a front camber kit for the MKIV, +/- 1 degrees for about $180 bucks which is half the price of the Les Schwab kit.

    Long story short if you bought yourself a camber kit online I'd like some info on good ones, what I should buy, and if I should do that or just go through Les Schwab. I'm taking my car in for just an alignment on Tues and I'll get the exact angle I'll need but
    I'm thinking it won't be any more than 1 degree +/-.

    Thanks JJ!

    1 degree is not that significant.

    So you think I'll need a lot more than a degree to straighten the wheels? This is the description of the kit:

    "Two Kits Included, each kit does one wheel, front only - Camber/Caster Adjustment -1.0/+1.0 degree - For Vehicles Lowered Up To 3" These kits are ideal for gaining valuable wheel to fender clearance as well as adding additional handling performance to your MK4."

    EDIT:Here's how the car sits right now, hopefully you can tell from the crappy cell pics.
