I got new tires with alignment done 4000 miles ago and I have

inner side rubbing problem which is bad camber setting problem.

Here's what I got before,

Front:

Camber - 1.0 degrees

Caster + 5.0 degrees

Toe 0.00 mm

Today I got re-alignment done with this numbers,

Camber - 1.8 degrees

Caster + 3.2 degrees

Toe 0.00 mm

The alignment guy says I have problem with Camber setting

based on specification from TOYOTA "Minimum: - 1.3 ~0.3"

and I got - 1.8 degrees which half is still need to be adjusted.

and I have to have aftermarket Camber Kit .... to fix this problem.

I got Eibach Pro-kit Spring.

Do I really need Camber kit..??

Thank you for all your inputs.

If he told you that you need an aftermarket camber kit, then go somewhere else. He doesn't know what the hell he is doing. I just had my car aligned to Lance's specs and they are dead on. You just have to do more adjusting to get that much caster out of it while keeping the camber. My car has Eibach's and Koni's. Being lowered doesn't mean it can't be done.

You need to run away from this guy as quickly as possible. The camber is adjustable on the MKIV so regardless of tire size you do not need an aftermarket kit.
