if you are worried about tire wear, id be more focused on toe being out of spec than camber.

ive seen negative toe wear destroy tires faster than negative camber.

if you rotate your tires often, like every oil change, chamber ware should not be an issue.

like wed3k said, check your toe in/out situation...if thats off you can destroy your tires even driving in a straight line.

Camber kits for CB7s are sooo cheap. Why even risk the wear?

Get a camber kit from ebay, drop the car and get an alignment. It's cheaper than tires.

Please dont get a camber kit from ebay, they are fucking terrible and you'll regret your choice in 3 months when they clunk over every bump. If your going to buy a camber kit, buy either camber/toe adjustable upper ball joints or buy an Ingalls camber kit.

im not going to get ebay because ive heard of the bad experiences people have had with them.
im planning to get camber kits and they are going to be at least ingalls, but i dont know how much correction i need.
which is why im asking how much negative camber i should expect.

When I was dropped 2" with my lowering springs, I had -2 degrees of camber in the front, and about -1 in the rear.

i have had two sets of ebay camber kits that broke on me. it could have ended with me in a ditch from that.

after those, i ran a Eibach/SPC type camber kit and my performance in the curves sucked because i had no negative camber.

so i just ended up going no camber kit.

Front Degree of Correction 1 +1.25
Front Degree of Correction 2 +3.00

why is that?

I ran a Revo Technica Camber Kit (not the ball joint style) and never had problems with it. In fact, I still have it installed on the Black honda.
