Question type: Car Customization

can the stock suspension's camber angle be adjusted? (1.5 degrees toe out)
i just want to know if that is possible... i have OEM multi link suspension up front with a 2 1/2 inch drop and sway bar... while the
back is stock control arm suspension with fabricated solid steel sway/bouncing tortion bar to lift it an inch higher...just wondering
how to adjust the toe out angle and what should i use or do to unscrew it? i was thinking of removing the nut and bolt and putting
it back together by welding and reinforcing it... need some suggestions...

why do you wanna give it any more toe? toe is different then camber yeah you can adjust the stock suspension but you can do to much without camber arms.

if that's the case i mean negative camber... i want to optimize my tire usage and save the outer treading...also for better cornering... so how do i adjust the camber?

well if its just the stock camber arms its not easy to do but with the aftermarket camber arms its just a monkey wrench. with stock stuff if you are doing it yourself then i wouldnt advise it but loosen up your suspension and get a 2x4 and torque it out yourself but that can be rather problematic as you also might be changing your toe by accident and also could accidentally change caster. i doubt you have the proper tools to measure your toe camber and caster cause if you put just a little to much toe in it say good bye to your tires. that being said your car your call :)
