positive camber after installing coil overs
 
ok like the tittle says

i just got coilovers installed (ksport kontrol pro) but there's an issue, i have a little of positive camber instead of negative.
also there is a popping noise coming from the front driver side and it is not the ball joints because that was replaced at the same time the coil overs were installed.
any ideas whats going on here?
thanks in advance

You might have to progress from lolspeak to get any meaningful response here, but I'm going to say something is very wrong if you somehow ended up with positive camber after lowering you car. Talk to the Texans that installed your suspension because if you got positive camber they did something terribly wrong.

ok like the tittle says

He had a shop do it. Is it lowered any or still at the stock height?

it is lowered, no wheel gap in the front, and about half an inch wheel gap in the back

How much positive camber do you have? Do you have an alignment sheet from the alignment? Did you replace your sway bar links as well at the same time? Those are known to cause the popping noise though wouldn't have anything to do with the positive camber issue. Does it have upper camber plates on the coil overs? If not then I would try those out to dial it in where it needs to be, that's if everything was installed correctly.

So you didn't get a alignment done with them? They usually don't come with upper camber plates that's a separate part I think? Did you replace the upper strut mounts?
