Will dialing in more negitive camber help lower the car more???

My friend and I have the same suspension setup, same rims size, same tire sizes. the rear end of my car sits a little higher than his rear...like 1/2 inch higher... some of our settings are:

His:
rear camber: -2.2
rear toe: almost ~0

mine:
rear camber: -0.5
rear toe: ~.325

so is that why his sits lower? im gonna take it in and get the rear aligned better.. the place i went to only did a front alignment..

I'm not really sure, but alignment has a lot to do with tire wear (overall, outter, inner) so I wouldn't go overboard just to "get a lower ride".

Alignment will not affect height to that extent. Going negative on most suspensions, if it were to affect height on a supra it would be lower the more negative the camber. What are your guys suspension setups consist of? going negative on the camber will handle better but will hurt off the line traction. Depends on what you want out of your car.

He bought his suspention about a month earlier.. his is a 93 with 75k miles and mine is a 95 with 94k miles. it has to be something like the bushings like you mentioned. oh well. it makes my headlights point down a lot now.

How long has the kit been on your car? the reason I ask is that springs will settle a bit. Maybe not a 1/2 inch but some. I'm not familiar with the RSR spring material and process. I know Eibach uses cold winding maching and superior metal so the spring will not sag. If the RSR springs are hot wound then they will sag some over time.

Also the spring manufacturers will give aproximate lowering measurements, say 1.3 front and 1" rear. It usually is an estimate, some cars will sit higher than others.

I know this is old but still trying to figure out why my drivers side is so much lower that my passenger side, I have changed the shocks, someone said ,maybe it's my bushing. The drivers side scrapes like crazy, i have 18 inch rims. I have Eibach springs. HELLLLLLP.
