    Soon I'll be fitting some lowering springs (-30mm) and adjustable camber arms, would I be correct in thinking the that the camber is set with the car sitting in it's natural stance?
    By lowering it the wheels will tilt in at the tops, so I want to return it to the spec settings to prevent uneven tyre wear, plus I believe it will help with road holding.

    Out of interest, how much does this cost to do if I take it to a wheel alignment specialist?

    Any other advise on this would be appreciated :Thumbup:

    Hunter wheel alignment is about 90 quid.
    which is what I will be doing to mine if I ever get around to putting the springs and arms on

    That's what I'm thinking, may as well have it done properly but always like to have a go myself.

    Morning @Ichiban , gentle reminder to upload the wheel alignment specs for the F-RV.

    I believe them to be 0 front and -1 on the rear, be good to get the confirmation.
    Cheers :Thumbup:
