Camber

Ok, now i know that on the e30 325iS(particularly) u cannot adjust the rear CAMBER, but i have heard that you can adjust the front...How would one go about doing that...Mine is already quite negative, but i like pushing the limits, although my brand new tires are gonna suffer....

Thanx

you can adjust the rears, if there is camber on the rear, your subframe bushings are probably shot. Replace them and you will notice a difference.
I thought an alignment would adjust the front camber/toe issues? It did for mine.

If you want to wear your tires out faster then you can blink, you are wanting the right thing!

Trust me, I like the negative camber look, makes the car even look lower. Problem is, the tire wear is fuc*ked. Not good if you are going to have summer rims/tires like I plan to. Can't afford that. I would imagine it puts quite a bit of stress on the front suspension as well.
