on the subject of lowering cars, grumpy with the independent suspension on my c4 i notice my tires wear uneven on the inside due to the new camber angle from lowering... is there a factory adjustment for this (no i havent got a service manual yet even tho its been over a year since you told me to get one :oops:

There's never enough money to build it right, but there's always enough to build it twice!

Dirt track caster camber guages would help.
Access to a 4-wheel alignment machine.
Used to do alignments daily in the past.

there are also adjustable upper ball joints made for this very issue. Other wise lowering should be done via drop spindle 8-)
