Ok i have an 88 SE rx7now the rear driver side wheel looks like it has mad negative camber. It is wearing on the inside and not the out side. From one day to the next the handaling went from tight and confident to loose and freaking scary. The other day it was raining ant the cars rear was all over the place. when i would get little water pacthes(Really Little) it would feel like i was going to loose control. Even in dry roads if i start to get on the throttel the rear feels like im going into a drift. Im really scared to drive my RX-7 now.



Please Help ! ! ! ! !



P.S. I have the stock suspension, no cut springs, nothing.

I do not know you the camber can be mad. Did you yell at the wheel?





Suspension bushings, control arms. Take a peek under the car and look for anything that is out of place

no like it is the only wheel that is out of alignment. The rest are fine and this one is screwed up. Would doing doughnuts and drifts cause a tire to get negative camber???And im telling you the cars handeling has gone to ****.

Yea how do you know that the camber is mad? Maybe its happy and it likes being that way. Watch out when you try to fix it. It might really get mad then.

Well if you dont know what the problem is then take it to a suspension shop and have them look at it. They dont have to be rotary specialists to work on your suspension.

yeah, mine is like that also. It all happend with a tapped a curb about 3 months ago. (doing a Drift)



well, the right rear tapped a curb, and it fucked up the camber on that side. I taken every peice of that suspension off, and looked to see if something was bent... it happens to be my rear Strut is acctually bent.



My rear tire sticks out (eewwwww Positive camber)



Getting that fixed, real soon

Take the wheels off both sides on the rear and compare them. Something has got to be bent or broken.

Good luck
