hey guys i was just wondering what a rear camber shim kit is. They say it fixes the rear but what is the difference between this and the rear camber?

shim kit is just washers and a longer bolt used to push the camber arm out, a cheap way to fix your camber issue when you lower your car.

a real camber kit a replacement of the arm that has adjustability.

Or buy an omni front camber kit, it comes with rear shims, aka longer bolts and some washers. Don't use cheap bolts though, higher grade steal, if they break you're in some ****.
