    Ok cheers, yeah I wondered why the alignment holes seemed to be slotted when i replaced them, ill have to look into that because i had uneven tyre wear on the fronts before lowering.

    Just want to double check rear camber before i order a set.

    If your car has been lowered any more than about 15mm you'll need adjustable tie bars.

    Once you've got them done get the car 4 wheel aligned. About £100 from a tyre place and that'll sort you out.

    Fronts give just over 1 deg neg camber max using the slots even if you open them slightly (not by much mind, 2mm or so max) which can be a ball ache to set on the alignment rig as the subframe needs to be cock on in the middle and not many places are prepared to go to such lengths to set it up for the little you get back...

    StaceyS3 has Ground Control camber plates on his S3... they look as though they could work ok..
