Post subject:  Too much negative camber behind. Help.

so recently i had these installed on my Gen 2.

http://www.stiffring.com/

They are like cheaper equivalent to Spoon Rigid Collars so apart from 4 or 6 that goes in front, there are 2 that goes to the rear trailing arm bushing me thinks.

After that, i realised i have alot of negative camber on my rear left wheel, as compared to the right. Just by eyeballing. So i took it for an alignment check.

Anyway, i checked and double checked my ride height. Rears r equal. I checked with vernier calipers. Tire pressure at 230kpa.

Guy tells me my rear left was almost negative 2.5deg. Right was about negative 1.5. Ok. So after everything is said and done, it seems loads better.

Fast forward 2 wks later, which is today, the problem's come back. If anyone has any ideas, i would be most appreciative if you can share, many thanks!

Check for worn bearings/ bushings/ uneven struts?

Hi mate thanks for the response. Can't be struts. i checked the ride height for each strut many times over. Forgive me for being ignorant but how would worn bearings be a culprit? and which bushing (or bushes) would contribute to excessive camber?
