    I'm having a problem with camber ATM. I have the Performance Coilovers and the front is still cambered -1.8. Eccentric bolts are completely maxed out. Is there anything else I can do that will get it within -1? 1.8 is just too much for me.

    I have mine as low as anyone I know on stock 18s and have no alignment issues. The adjustments are not always easy for the alignment shop to make and often they do not hold because of technition error. Have you tried more than one alignment shop? Send me or post pic of each of the front adjustment bolts. They do the camber and the rear does caster.

    The XII Performance drop can absolutely get back into stock alignment spec. Unless your eccentric bolts are frozen.... it if everything is free your alignment shop doesn't know what they're doing.

    I currently have a similar issue with the xii springs. first shop couldnt get it right so I took it to a shop that does alignment for all types of race cars and theyre the ones that realized that the alignment tabs were bent outward so the adjustment bolts werent sitting properly where they should be. Taking it this thursday to finally get it fixed (if hurricane irma doesnt hit Miami) and Ill let you know if that fixed the issue.

    Total chaos sells a kit to fix this because apparently this is a common issue with toyotas according to the tech. Below is the link for the kit. I didnt buy the kit but the shop I am taking it to will be doing something similar.
