Re: Fresh Pics of the Kraken

Is it just me or maybe the angle the pic was taken at? Especially in the first one it looks like you have bad toe in front and back. How is the setup and tire wear?

Toe or Camber?

I didnt have any issues with the toe, the problems people run into after doing a drop on the SRT is typically camber.

In my case in order to get the camber back into spec (which is still negative), I had to put on adjustable rear control arms. I worked with Chad at Blackops quite a bit and the setup is perfect.

No uneven wear after a few thousand miles from what I can tell, and I am about to take her back in to double check everything now that it has had some time to settle.

I think that's just distorted cell phone HDR foolery...

I read so much conflicting information as to how the mid springs alter the camber. Some people say it can be corrected to within spec range with a good alignment. Others say that you need the adjustable arms, etc etc. what is the consensus?
