Default Camber issue new Impreza 08

Hi All!

I measured the camber electronically and the rear got -1.48 on the right tyre and -2.02 on the left tire. Do you think that difference is ok? Wheels are alloy 16" and all is stock

Thanks

I remember mine to be around ~-1.0 for both the driver and passenger rear with the stock 2.5i suspension and 16" premium wheels.

How were they measured? You can bring it to a dealer to have it checked. -2 is way too high and you want as close to 0 in the back as possible.

Using this system http://www.hunter.com/pub/product/al...84-T/index.htm

The problem is that the rear right wheel got a hit and the shop replaced the upper arm (which is responsible for camber)...
That camber measurement was done after that replacement was done so they now ordered the 2 lower arms and the cast iron rounded thing that connects all arms to the wheel.

wow. there is no upper arm. its a strut that adjust the camber. the lower arm adjusts the toe. hopefully they measure the alignment by hooking the heads to the rims and not the tire, because that will mess things up. get a 20$ adjustable cam bolt, and it will bring the camber out to decrease the negative camber. easy fix.

sounds like there a body shop. they love replacing everything with new parts. lots of money to do that! unless insurance is paying for it!

on the 08 and up yes there is a upper arm in the back. I would say the lower might have got bent too.

I've heard to run max negative in the front.

I can attest to this as on both my previous Imprezas, the tires wear the most on the outsides of the fronts, even if you keep it at stock alignment specs. Max negative camber, could combat this, as toe is already good at stock.
