camber

hi people.

correct me if im wrong but i think the front can be adjusted for both camber and toe and only toe at the back yes? my question is- how much neg camber can be dialed in at the front with totally stock suspension? and how much would you recommend.

its my daily driver and im rarely on the highway. mostly suberban driving with constant turns and roundabouts. i generally drive more 'spiritedly' than others (nothing stupid but i like a bit of speed through the corners). i also go to the track every month or 2 so the outside shoulders are considerably more damaged than the rest of the tire. anyway enough of my life story. i wanna know what would be a suitable camber setting to suit my driving habits.

cheers

Uh technically yes camber can be changed however it is a very small change and that change is determined by the toe.

Nah you wouldn't be able to get tha much no matter what the toe is. The only way to get camber on the fron is camber plates or by lowering your car. Mine is lowered and I have -2.1 of camber on 3 tires while my driver front is -1.8 unfortunately. I personally love the -2.1, it's not to much but it is enough to keep you off the sidewall except for the driver side .
