Ok mate,

Your existing camber is set to match your existing suspension and ride height,

Your existing rear camber is not adjustable,

So when you lower the ride height your rear camber will be off,

Resulting in uneven tyre wear on the inside wall and less road to tyre contact on the rear wheels.

By fitting adjustable rear camber bolts the alignment of the rear wheels can be adjusted to achieve proper even tyre wear aswell as optimum grip and improved handling all for 30 pounds. Thats quarter the cost of an 18inch tyre

Eibach recomend getting laser alignment carried out on your car after lowering to realign the wheels to match the ride height aswell as headlight alignment for optimum experience.

Eibach rear camber bolts are model specific and the kit linked is for all mk2 and mk2.5 hatch back ford focus from 2005-2011

Here is a link to purchase:

Hi Liam, yes mate definantly worth it mate, they cost £30 off eBay (Lenny has kindly posted a link earlier in the thread) and will save you two more rear tyres!! Needed to set the camber when having the wheels laser aligned, which mine is booked in for on Monday. :)

Hi Lenny, lol think it might need more than a good cuppa to convince him ;)

Garage wanted £200 to fit springs, he's doing it for £100 so I'm quids in and I trust him to do the job which he's done many times before! :)
