Dads03SVT Mine wears the tires and it's suspension is stock height keep front at "0"and added rear camber arms and it still chews up the inside of the tires.

Starting to think lower it 2 inches with coilovers & add plates upfront...if it's gonna wear tires it might as well look good doing it right??

I 2nd that. ^^^^^^^^^^^^ I like a tad bit of toe on the rear, as I tried the zero toe on the rear= it whips & you have to pay attention. To the OP, you should of done the alignment your self, since you work there. You can adjust it to where you wanted it & not just hit the green & ship it. I've done alignments for over 15yrs my self. Mine is at -2.0 degrees in the front & -1.5/-1.7 in the rear w/ the front toe at zero & 0.09/.010 rear toe in degree's. I also have CFM's tubular controls arms on the front for more camber. My tires are wearing evenly all the way around too. I have the Eibach sportline system which is 2''/2.2'' lower.

wrc_fan do some autox's, hehe, that'll take some tire off the the outside edge :D With my setup, I can't get enough negative camber up front, the outside corners wear extremely fast. Of course, my car sees only highway duty on the way to autox or the track.

If you're having issues in the rear, the camber arms that are available should get you where you need to be very easily.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that the inside of my tires front and back are showing wear faster than any other part of the tire. No broken suspension parts just lowered on H&R spring kit. Car has 70,000 miles.
