EK3 Suspension Problem

Postby Dylz305 » April 10th, 2016, 2:52 am

EK3 99-00

Problem is my back tyres look 'cambered' when viewing from behind the car when it's not.
This causes the inside of the tyres to smoothen like 10x faster than it should while leaving the inside and outside very healthy.
Also happens with the front but not as drastic.

Nothing was done to the suspension (dropping etc), and it's on 17" rims. My guessing is weight's the problem and tyres costing alot and even with the car empty the wheels still isn't straight up.

Tyre shop guy told me alot of Hondas has this proble and it's not an easy fix. Any ideas?
Will post pics ASAP

1 guy at tire shop is a quack


first ensure all bushings are good

the trailing arm bushing , all lower control arm bushings and the bushings in the small rear upper arm
damaged bushings can also throw off alignment

There are two options to correct the camber

1 buy a rear camber kit
or
2 the alignment shop can put spacers and correct alignment

What I usually do is add spacers. About 3 does the trick on the camber arm. Check a reputable alignment shop.
