Eibach Pro-Alignment Kit

I have a 2012 SRT YJ, with Mopar lowering springs and front/rear strut braces. I have 21100 total miles and with that about 10K miles clocked with the lowering springs in service. My car is a DD. And I also run the Goodyear F1's, staggered. Front tires, ok...Rear tires...not so ok. The rears have worn quite a bit on the outside...inside, not so bad given the mileage and duty. The outside tread is riding on the wear indicators. Inside tread, not so much, probably 2 or 3/32's left on the in-board sides. I'll post up some pics in a bit showing the rear tire wear patterns.

But, it seems I need a smidge of negative camber to even out the rear tire wear patterns. So, I ordered a set of Eibach rear camber bushings for the rear control arms, part number 5.66050K.

Anybody else in CT world install these bushes? How do they hold up, durability wise, daily driver duty cycle? Any issues at all with these, besides once they are pressed into the control arms, rear camber adjustability is nada....

I've had them as well as the front adjustable UCAs on my car for about 18,000 miles now with a bit of track use and I've had zero problems. You'll be fine. :)

I'm curious to know how the alignment shop is going to adjust anything on the rear, there is no adjustment with the factory parts. Nada. That's why the Eibach (SPC) camber bushings are needed.

Feathering of the tires would be caused by toe. Wear like you're seeing would be caused by camber.

The only actual alignment adjustment our cars have from the factory is front toe. Anything else requires aftermarket parts to allow adjustments to be made. So, as I said, I'll be interested in hearing how your alignment shop performs an alignment when there's no adjustment.

Not sure about the adjustment capabilities. The 2012 service manual I have, section 2 shows differently, e.g. adjustments possible. Rear toe adjustment is possible. We'll see what happens tomorrow. It should be fun.....:read::phone::beer_yum::grinbiginvert:
Does it show an eccentric bolt? There is a "toe adjustment link" which...isn't adjustable itself. :lol: Would need an eccentric bolt or adjustable bushing to adjust the toe.

What does it say the process for adjusting rear toe is? This is the first I've heard/seen of a way to make those adjustments, maybe they finally changed something for 2012+ to make it possible.

Nevermind, I do see toe is adjustable via eccentric bolts. It's just been camber/caster that aren't adjustable using factory parts. My bad.

That said, the wear you're getting looks like camber and not toe.
