I guess it might if you're driving a Honda or Acura.

I'm confused:
1. Why would you want to reduce the camber? (but I guess that's your thing)
2. Isn't -1.5 doable with with eccentric bolts?

How low do you have to be to have -2.6 as your minimum camber? is that like a 2" pinch weld?

OP: You can use offset bushings installed backwards to reduce your camber.

Because NO ONE needs or should have 2.6* on the street. Maybe he doesn't want to buy tires every 20k miles.

But the point is twofold.

1. There should be no issues whatsoever achieving -1.5 ... unless he has done something herrafrush. In which case, tire wear is probably the least of his concerns, and ban.

2. He has linked to Honda parts. There isn't even an equivalent part for a Miata. So a complete waste of time for everyone involved in this thread. Which is why I'm now done with it.

That is a LOT of miles on one set of tires for me. -2.6 isn't that crazy either; it's that what is implicit here is that the car is so low that it can't be fixed. #LIFTKIT

I understand the OP is a moron. I was simply responding to EricJs question because he implied 2.6* isn't too much. Which would also potentially make him a moron.

If your car is straight, you're slammed and you should raise the car to a sensible ride height (at least 4.0" pinch weld) to reduce camber. You should have no problem running ~2deg in front, which is what an aggressive street alignment calls for.

If your car is bent, you should replace the bent stuff and realign.

If neither of these apply, your alignment guy is incompetent and you should find a new one.
