what's in a camber kit? I assume it has to do with front end alignment
will all 4 wheels require checking, or is this only for front end? I had the left camber kit replaced by the dealer at 52893 mi and they said the right camber is slightly out. I'm now at 55,000 mi and have service scheduled and asked them to check.

    To put it simply, a camber kit adjusts the inward or outward tilt of the wheel caused by.

    1. Finding excessive tire wear on the inside edge of your tires compared to the outer edge

    2. Taking your vehicle in for an alignment and asking the technician if you have excessive negative camber (and for a printout of the results). This is the only way to know exactly how excessive your camber is but definitely not necessary.

    3. You have lowered your vehicle so you already know your alignment (camber) will be off and purchase a camber kit ahead of time.
