I think you might need a rear camber kit.

Thnx guys ... I will be adding more pic's about next week (will take more pictures the end of this week).

You DO need to ROLL the fender.

I dont think I need the chamber kit because the lower is your car then it will chamber automatically. :)

Some more comments would be great.

Your reasoning is actually backwards. The more you lower the car, the more you will need a camber kit due to the fact your car will have more negative camber as the car gets lower. A camber kit will correct the negative camber.

First of all that looks fugn saweet! Very beautiful!

But you do need a camber kit my friend!

And just for reference, you don't need to roll your fenders since your tires will do it for you......I will put my title on the line and bet you that within 2 months your front fenders will be cracked at the very top of the fender well! Care to take my bet?:) The reason I say this is because I have 235/35/19 w/40mm offset 8" wide, and as of very recently I have found a crack at the top of the passenger side wheel well from turning hard left with a passnger on a bumpy turn. The tire hits a the frender and basically pushes it up the same way a fender roller does.

Since you have 8.5 and 9" it is just a matter of when, not if, you will rubb.

And to everyone else, Yes! He does rubb, whether he wants to admit it or not. I rarely rubb with the same offset @ 8" wide. But if it rubbs in a turn, the damage is visible.


What body kit is that?

I think I was misunderstood about the camber kit :banghead: (I thot camber kit is used to make it more negative but should be the other around :thumbsup: )

Reply CJams :
I HAVE to roll my fender but NO RUB (After lowered my car a lot) :)

before I lower the car and roll the fender ... its really bad, every turns always rub my fenders (rear), then I decided to roll the fender (yeah .. roll that bad) and now no rub even if I bring 5 passengers :)

If possible I will take a picture 'inside' my fender to show after its been rolled (next week I will do wheel alignment and take some pictures)

just wondering how did u lower your car ? just cut the spring or coilover ? I used (padders spring without cut) and adjustable shock, maybe my shocks help my car to hold the car body before it 'touched' my fender.

1blue1.gif but 1 note : I dont rub at all (front and rear) even with 5 pessenger, but we'll see in another 2 months :)

hint²: I drive slowly if there is a hole/hump on the road.

Thanks anyway for your comments dude.

Please post pics of the fender roll. I am trying to decide how to resolve the issue myself.
1. Machine rims to 45 offset
2. Raise car
3. Roll fenders
????????????????????????

You may not think your negative camber is that bad but I guarantee those rear tires won't last more than 20,000 miles TOPS. While your camber is not as bad as your friends, it is much worse than mine ever was with a 1.2" drop on my civic. If you want to eat up your tires and buy two new ones every year or two, that's probably fine, as the negative camber does help in cornering during x-cross or road racing, but I'm guessing from the amount of your drop, you're not too concerned about proper racing so... I just wanted to let you know. I'm not trying to pick on you or make you feel bad, or anything. :) If it's any consolation, I think it looks good!
