How do I sort out the negative camber on the back of my accord?
Will these sort it out?
But the need proper setting. The maximum I would run is around 2º negative and that would be extreme for a road car.
Keep everything as close to neutral as possible for a nice daily drive.
My own preference would be
1º negative front
1º negative rear
1mm toe-in on the front
1mm toe-out on the rear
it likes to tramline at speed on motorways and stuff, but ultimately for turn-in and mid-corner stability on A/B/C roads, it is very hard to beat.
Thanks for that!
What is tramlineing? Heard it mentioned abit when talking about tyres.
it is where the car/tyres follow any camber or variation in the road
A car that is set up neutral, ie 0 toe and little/no camber will rarely tramline.
Imagine a tram, on a set of tracks, anywhere the track goes, it goes, including undulating surfaces and corners. Hence the term
Pete's bang-on with his advice, but just to say - shop around for those upper camber arms, they're a generic grey part rebranded by dozens of different suppliers. While I'm not finding much under the £100 mark right now, I've seen them as low as £65 including shipping from the states in the past.
something like this deviant?
Just 1 pair of these would straighten up my rear wheels?
Aye, that's the same part as above just painted in a different colour - it's a safe bet.
Has anyone attempted to track your car already? Yes they'll allow the camber to be corrected
Haven't had any tracking done yet, as I only had the 17" wheels on with crap tyres, so wasn't to bothered about rubbing them off.
But now it has 19" on the angle of the wheel is more noticeable, plus gonna get new rubber soon and don't want to scrub it off on the inside edge.
Are you just going by looks here @Kris81? You really need an alignment report before starting to throw money at it, using the stock toe adjustment you'll be able to bring it closer to spec anyway.
But yeah, generally they're a good idea anyway as it's the only way to get finite control of the tracking on the rear - I had the ones you posted on my '03, and have complete adjustable lower arms on my '07.
Yes, I'm going by eye when stood at the rear of the car, the top of the wheel leans in to the middle of the car quite noticeably, I should mention it is lowered on Apex springs too.
If it's lowered then the camber will definitely be impossible to sort without them, I'd grab those arms for sure
Nice one, thanks!
Tried to show how it sits now.
**Editted ... doh ! removed my original comment as I hadn't read the posts properly LOL
You can see the camber negative on that.
The adjustable arms when installed and laser tracking is done, will get rid of that.
Looks great buddy, do you know what degree you've set that at?
That is just how it went after I lowered it, I'm trying to get rid of the camber, it looks daft when my front wheels have no camber at all and I don't want to wear out my new tyres early!
Ahh Ok i see what ya mean!
Yea tyre wear is never welcome
Ordered the red camber arms further up the page, came to £60 delivered to my door.
Good price indeed there mate! Feel free to do a write-up when you install them, we haven't got one on the site at the moment.
