Is it OK to run negative camber for everyday street use? Is there a reason not to utilize the adjustment available on the shock towers to "dial in" some negative camber. Is there anything else to do other than loosen the tower nuts and the allen nut with car jacked and push top/pull bottom of tire and then tighten everything back up? Thanks

What is the most negative camber we can get (in the front) with a stock suspension? Also, how much caster can we set?<br>'02 BMW M3

Its probably not a good idea to do that, unless you have alignment equipment. Because you can also accidently move yer caster around that way too. Best to take it to a shop that does presision alignemnts and get camber set equal on both sides. For street driving I wouldn't go over 1.5deg unless you want to buy tires a lot.

You have to remove the locating pins.

You can't get more than 1 degree per side. No major harm in doing so. It won't even make much of a difference on the toe adjustment (since the movement is so small), but the advice is good -- camber adjustment will affect other settings, so you might want to verify the settings and re-adjust toe after you do it.

But I can't remember off the top of my head.
