Installing my front struts tomorrow (koni str.t) with some frpp p springs. I have read that you can keep the negative camber down by pointing the arrows on the strut mounts in toward the engine as opposed to pointing them out.
Never had an alignment on my stock setup, so should I play the %'s and point them in, assuming that I will have more neg camber than I did before?...or keep them out as recommeded, and wait to see what my camber is when I get it aligned?
Thats the one I am referring to. Arrow out is what the instructions call for, but I have read that pointing it in will reduce neg camber produced from the drop about .5 degrees...thus the question, arrow in or arrow out?
So far, so good with them turned in toward the engine. No alignment to confirm yet (next week), but no tire wear so far and everything up front feels good. I would imagine with over 400 miles so far that if anything was that far out of wack, it would show at this point. The guy that suggested the idea originally drove an 06.
Just from eyeballing it does it look like the front wheels are pretty straight up and down? Or do they have a hint of negative camber to them?
Man its tuff to tell. Sometimes the fronts look straight, sometimes they dont. To be honest with you, it drives good and i'm not worried about it
I'm just keeping an eye on my tires until I get it aligned...and for now its all good!
