I lowered my car with eibach sportlines and I have 17'' wheels on it. This messed the alinment all up so I put a caster camber kit on it. The front is good, the rear is adjusted all the way out and its still not enough. The wheels are still riding on the inside edge. What to do. Shims? Any comments would be great. Thanks

How far out of spec is it ? If you are going by looks alone, they are supposed to lean in a little.

I put on the same suspension and I was just barely out of spec. The 1* plate put me well into the middle of the factory range and I still had another 1/2* plate I could have put on. (I have the shim plates instead of the cam-bolt style)

Failing that, maybe you could install the other type of corrective measure to double up on the adjustment. i.e. cam-bolts AND shim kit. I don't know whether this would be a good idea or not though.....

Progress rear shims look like this and go behind your brake drum backplate:



I heard that they may not be made anymore though.....

or you may just want to pick up a set of adjutable rear upper control arms for like $179.00 that would fix for certain.
