That actually looks good on the optima. Just a few degrees makes a world of a difference.

2" drop with 2* negative front camber. I just need to figure-out how to do the rear camber. The pics don't do justice for the camber, but it's noticeable in person.

no offense but it looks funny being that this is a front wheel drive car, if you did just the back then sure, why not. having the front with the camber adjusted looks like the care is off and something isn't right.

Please no flame wars, just looking and wanted to see other opinions.

LOL, On the road I live on... any huge amounts of negative camber would cost me Huge amounts of money in tires.

And I dont care for the look too much either but thats just me ;)

The Forte doesn't use a rear spindle, so I couldn't adjust the rear. Also, the camber helps the front wheels to "tuck" into the wheel well, as well as giving it a slight "track" stance. I'm just surprised you guys are against it, typically a lowered car is accompanied with some sort of negative camber.

I’m not totally against it I just think the negatives (reduced braking traction, reduced acceleration, ect) far outweigh the benefits . If you participate in auto-x events or track days it might make sense but for everyday driving I just don’t see it.


I want my car to look good just not at the cost of every day driveability (not to mention the added tire and mechanical wear).

i love slammed cars but other guys that drive fortes do not. this is why we will never see a company step up and make coilovers that will slam this car. and that sucks! cause i want mine slammed.

A small amount of negative camber can improve grip in cornering. An excessive amount will make handling very poor. It looks stupid and wears your tires way too fast. It's just plain idiotic.

It's idiotic to have such a dbag closed mind, to each his own so shut your butt. 93 I like hellaflush look. Ill start playing with camber when tien releases coils. Yay fender work!
