it sounds like your strut tower is the real answer? teach me, does the strut tower basically push the strut towers outward to fix the negative camber? the sheet metal will flex that much?
sounds like the be-all-end-all answer is adjustable camber plates, but the 2bennett ones are like $595. i'll deal with some excess tire wear and rotate the tires a lot for that, eh?
are there any cheaper camber plates?
