ok i tired installing just the arms. and it's been a disaster. the problem came when i was putting pressure on the rubber ball joint and the thing like "smashed" or "shrunched". but in the pic in the write up the rubber thing held up. is it suppose to smash? then as i'm trying to un-shrunch it the whole rubber thing comes off along with the gold ring that held in on the joint. and all the grease is everywhere. AND the red rubber thing now has a small rip in it. seriously wtf!

Please contact me on this. The balljoint boot will "smush" up depending on the way you have it in. As for it going back on, it will definitely reinstall just fine. PM me if you have any questions.

Installed mine yesterday. I had -3.4 R and -1-7L for camber; looks straight now. I will have it aligned today and post my results.

The only problem I ran into during my install was removing the black metal bushing from the oem a-arm. I went to autozone and borrowed one of their tools, came right off. I forget the name, but it looks like this one.

not sure if its the camber kit, but those lights came on after the install.

edit:
shop told me to come back monday to have it checked out. i'll put up an update once everything is resolved.

other than that, my front camber looks awesome.

you could have bumped on of the sensors on there which could cause the problem.

i've been getting no calls back from the shop.........hmmm......

im sure SFLG35 is right. whether the abs sensor was misplaced on the mount, or just mishandled, i don't think it's the camber kit that is causing this problem.

so, ultimately, IMO, the shop will have to pay for this fix, like it or not.

^ probably, i just installed one side (taking a break) and i tried as much as i could to avoid bumping the abs sensor around, hopefully it won't go off.

fyi- the situation with the red boot: i got the ring and everything back on with the help of peter? at IAPDirect, and i used 100% silicone around the whole thing, and its holding up fine. i feel like wrapping a condom over the boots, like some guys did with other camber kits. for added protection.

I had my alignment guy install my kit with the spacers and my light came on and he readjusted the sensor and everything was fine. He said when he torqued the sensor down that it got tweeked and he just straighten it and the light went out.

I had both front and rears camber kits installed and noticed that it raised the my car about .5". Did any of you notice this happening.
