post coilover install Q's

Well, i got my SAW coilovers installed and i have a major (i think it is camber) issue (top of wheel tilted out) I know that TC UCA's are supposed to fix this but i don't really want to drop the coin for those when i am possibly going to do a SAS in the next year or so. So i guess my question is, is there a cheaper way to correct this? I have seen some lift kits come with a crossmember replacement that i assume is to correct this but idk. Was also wondering if the only thing that will alleviate the stress on my CVs is a diff drop? Thanks

Did you get an alignment after the install?

If after the alignment you still have the positive camber and the adjustment is maxed out for camber and you don't want to buy arms, only thing you can do is lower the coilovers down to bring the camber back into speck. The more you lower the coilovers, the better your positive camber will get.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Get it aligned. All the adjustments are done via the Lower Control Arm.

so getting it aligned should take care of most of the camber problem?

I think so. Bad camber is gonna wear the tire on the edges.
