Not enough camber!

Car sits 4 inches at front jack point, 4.5 inches at rear jack point had car aligned and tech said he could get only 1.8 degrees neg on front. At the track, This resulted in shoulder wear on my Michelin PS2's. Temps were 20 degrees cooler on inner shoulder , which isn;'t a bad spread, just would have thought there would be some heat on inner shoulders with the -1.8 camber. How can I get it lower that bottom of the stock bolts to gain neg camber. Oh , and I have t-1 shocks mounted.

Re: Not enough camber!

I didnt see any other replies, so here goes: FWIW, my 01 and 07 ZO6s both had the opposite problem. Excessive negative camber cause excessive wear on the inner side of the front tires. Both cars had steel belt material showing on the OEM tires before I realized the situation.
Id check your alignment guys expertise with Corvettes, or try another shop. Usually Chevrolet dealer shops will not align out of the official specs, which usually means excessive negative camber for street driving.

Cheers,
Pete
