What kind of camber kits do you guys recommend?

I'm looking for a camber kit. I was wondering which once are priced right but does its job? Everyone knows Ingalls Kits but does other brand such as Intrax deliver the same quality and purpose?

I'm dropped 2.5 inches all around (give or take 0.2 inches). When I turn my wheels now they almost touch the fenders and sometimes when I'm doing a hard turn at higher speeds it rubs the fenders! What I'm affraid of is that if I install a camber kit it might cause even bigger problems when it comes to turning! (ex. bent fenders)

Having said that I'm also worried about traction. the front of the car running on just the insides of the tires isn't exaclty the best traction in the rain or snow. Anyways those are just a few of my concerns for now, if you guys can help out that would be great!

Thanks

- CB

i can imagine.... one surefire way would be to cut the control arms and shorten them enough to take away major camber and then reweld them back together i think

you could go with progress camber kit...thats what Im running and Im lowered 2.5 also....the cost of the kit isnt too bad either...I paid $314 tax in....but keep in mind that is at cost NOT retail...So if you have some hookups that could get you the price at cost...

OR if you're gonna be in the Ottawa area, pm me and I can get you a set at cost.
