    How to correct Camber

    I just installed a set of Eibach Sportsline Springs on my 2000 Trans Am, WS6, LS1. I love the stance and ride. I took it in this morning for a front end alignment and they told me that I needed Aftermarket Camber plates because both front wheels have a -80 reading. They also said that I could just leave it the way it is but the inside of the tire will wear faster than the rest. Does anyone out there know if I can buy anything so the Camber can be adjusted? If so, where can I buy them? A link to a Website would be helpful.
    Thanks

    Did they attempt to adjust camber?? Cause Camber is adjustable from the factory without any "plates" ive performed plenty alignments on lower F-bodys and were able to get them in spec without a camber kit.

    By those specs you will be fine.... min spec for your car is a -0.6 and if your at -0.8 you will be fine. I don't know if maybe they sounded a little extreme about it but your not going to get rapid tire wear it will take some time before you notice that the tire is worn on the inside. I've always been able to get cars around the -.02 range after they were lowered. But Enjoy you will be fine keep up with the rotations (if possible) and you won't notice a thing.

    toe would make it bad over bumps... if camber was different on both sides the car would be bad on uneven road surface's.
