    Camber

    I am currently on the look out for a set of coilovers. I got my car lowered a few months back and only just got round to getting the adjustable tie bars for the rear.

    My question is once the coilovers are on and the camber is set with the tie bars. if i lower or raise the car will this put the camber out again. meaning i will have to go back to get the suspension set up properly again.

    Put simply, yes... it will alter the camber on the rear and also alter the toe on the front.

    Depends on how much you lower or raise the car by as to what affect it will have but I would be more concerned about the front toe as it will affect the way the car drives.

    Adjust the cars height to what you want (remember not too low else the sump is at risk) then get the car re-aligned and leave it be.
