Hi dudes,

i just received my H&R Race Spring Set, some site are talking about this..
(*Note: These spring sets require special camber adjusting components.)

what is the camber stuff? they don't say nothing about what and where to find this. and why.

anyone? somebody have those spring and can tell me if you need the camber stuff?

Well, in a nutshell, what happens is that when your car is lowered, the wheels' camber goes up. This means that the top of the wheel goes inward while the bottom goes outward (in relation to one another). This places uneven stress on a tire (contact patch) when driving in a straight line, reducing thread life on one side of the tire. It also reduces braking efficiency and can cause vehicle wander. It's great for cornering, though!

Check this link (http://www.familycar.com/alignment.htm) for more info on camber.
