Just curious if anyone here has run a negative camber set up on their E. I've been saving for this pretty crazy rim/suspension set up and I was looking for advice if anyone has any. Thanks!!!
I don't want to sound ignorant or anything, but what is spc? I've never heard of them... i know that ingals makes a camber kit....but ya. I'm looking at running a 20x9 front and a 20x10.5 or 20x11 rear set up...but I don't want it to look like a low rider with wheels that stick out hella far.... lol!!!!!!!! I was thinking something more along these lines : http://bippu4life.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/blue-tsx-works-vsxx.jpgAnd to fix it, buy a camber kit from spc, you can get it from summit racing or ebay.
My wheels are 20x8, 20x9. I'm not sure what the offset is. I forget my tires sizes, I'll have to get back to you. I would go 20x9.5 all around if I were you. That seems to be the perfect setup. If you go 10.5 or 11 in the rear I think you'll have trouble fitting those in there. Of course, with enough work you could fit almost anything in there :grin:. Those pics you posted are nice, I wish we could slam our E's like that. That's my dream too! I gave up on a VIP-Styled Element a long time ago.hey burn that's a nice set up man! What size are your wheels and tires?
DPE's (Dynamic Performance Engineering) are 2-piece forged wheels with custom wheel off-sets that are done per vehicle. If I were to guesstimate, then I would have to say a 40 to 42mm off-set.Thanks for the info!!!! I like the stance of both set ups....anyone know what offsets they're running?
On the front, the only thing available is Camber Bolts unless you have the K Sport Coil Overs, then you would have the built in Camber Plates.im looking into this set up too... will there be any camber kits needed for the front... ive read stuff about camber bolts or plates... which is it or neither??
Even with my Teins, I had to send them back to them and have the rears rebuilt with heavy duty valves, and I got the HD springs. I can now put up to 987 lbs. in the rear without a problem. The only draw back with camber bolts is that you have to check them every so often to be sure that they haven't loosened up (road vibration, bumps, etc.). Camber plates are built into the coil over itself, so once it's set, then that's it! I am definitely keeping my heavy duty rear Tein Coil Overs, but I might change out the fronts at some point just for the plates.thats interesting....i didn't know that either. I heard that people are pretty unhappy with the softness of the rear suspension on the K-sports.....me personally, I've had tiens on 3 cars already so that's what I'm going with....but any other input would be appreciated. Any advantage to having the built in camber plates as opposed to the camber bolts?
