    The inside part is. The outside waer is from turning sharp corners going fast.

    The main reason im sure is because on the one that is showing the cords, you can actually SEE the wheel leaning in.

    Dropped and too much negative camber will do that. MM C/C plates will correct that.

    :dunno:
     
  8. depends on the drop and some other suspension stuff... which I know little about...

    But CC plates are always a great idea... don't be cheap, spend the extra dough and do the job right...

    MM CC plates are the best, 4 bolts as apposed to 3...

    lots of tire shops will do a computer alignment to factory specs, even when the car is lowered. It is procedure.

    You must get a CUSTOM alignment for a lowered car.

    I don't have them and didn't need them and i have a decent drop. I expected i would have to get them after i saw how much my Steeda Springs dropped my car but my alignment shop is run by car nuts not guys who used to work at Sears and they are used to working on custom cars all day. My car drove perfect after my alignment and i took it on a 700 mile road trip the next week with no wear at all on the tires...after 2 years the tires still looked perfect. I will add some MM 4 bolts later on but i certainly don't need them yet.

    Bah, that's what my old tires looked like after I already had an alignment from one shop.. NOT LOWERED either... Took it to a different shop because it was time for my DD+new tires and they showed that too me.. needless to say, I will never be going back to the orginal shop again..

    Eibach Prokit springs. I got 'em used off a forum classifide for about $100 I think. 1.5" drop, exactly. Today I'm installing my '03 Mach1 take-off shocks/struts to compliment the springs. O0 Getting those bolts on the bottom of the front strut is going to be interesting though....might as well be welded on there. lol
