For you guys that have lowered your Z's..........Are camber adjustment arms a must? And for those who have not put them on...Do you notice any tire wear, or lesser contact patch of the tire?


Thanks

I am not a suspension guru but I have lowered my car...Tien Flex 1st generation.

I expect 10% treadwear loss due to out of spec camber. I am installing the 350EVO front upper control arms to aid front end alignment, but passed on installing any arms in the rear until Hotchkis releases thier adjustable set.

My car is lowered about one inch...cheaper to accept the treadwear loss IMO.

I'm planning on buying the Tein Flex also. How do you like the ride?

No, No, NO!...there are much better suspension options available now...the Tein Flex with the 12Kg springs is much stiffer than OEM...even at the softest setting. Not good for performance or comfort. I'll be changing mine soon...have some more research to do and waiting on new products in development.

Apologies for directing you to another site...but there is more info in this thread than I can condense here:
