do you have a alignment printout showing all readings?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I dont have a print out, its a problem been going on for years. I installed the BC Racing adjustable Suspension 3 years ago. And Tires get used up on the inside real quickI watch the mechanic do the alignment and he even shows me on the computer screen that everything is in the greenI was told by another mechanic its probably because the car is lowered and the center of gravity is lower thats why all 4 tires get used on the inside and that it might be "camber" relatedbut if its camber related wouldnt it show up on the laser alighment machine ? he puts these little reflectors on all the tires and a computer screen shows the alignment

you certainly can lowering a car effects camber and caster, caster and camber will need to adjusted to compensate for the drop, Sometimes the strut towers need to be slotted to correct the caster angle and cam kits to change the camber

Wear on the inside edge usually points to an excessive negative camber have them bring a degeree of positive camber on each side and see if that helps reduce the wear
