Bro, why don't you find out more on costs etc and then perhaps we can all make a trip there to do this alignment chamber adjustment if necessary. I've never done anything to my ride in JB so would not know..

In that case just wheel alignment will do..

Ok, found something interesting and therefore would appreciate if someone can translate for me in layman term..

In cars with double wishbone suspensionDouble wishbone suspension
In automobiles, a double wishbone suspension is an independent suspension design using two wishbone-shaped arms to locate the wheel. Each wishbone or arm has two mounting points to the chassis and one joint at the knuckle. The shock absorber and coil spring mount to the wishbones to control...

) and can lead to increased tire wear and impaired handling. For this reason, individuals who are serious about modifying their car for better handling will not only lower the body, but also modify the mounting point of the top of the struts to the body to allow some inward/outward (relative to longitudinal centerline the of vehicle) movement for camber adjustment. Aftermarket plates with slots for strut mounts instead of just holes are available for most of the commonly modified models of cars.

maybe due to unseen circumstances...it will lead to faster tyre wear n maybe impaired handling..
our car is not purfect u see..
u gain some u lose more..
its to each individuality preference n seriousness..

maybe with a usage of HWL suspension guinea pigeon can shed light to this persistent arrising probs.

im not touching yet on those MacPherson wishbone thiingy...its more like (ARB=antiroll-bar) to me
as of now...i have not seen drastic changes on impairment n faster tyre wear as i dun count how many hundreds of kilometres i travel.maybe the changes will take place @ the side tyres wall indicator..thinner rubber each month maybe.. silent cyclops

Sorry hor, my English not powerful but just from speed reading, basically for independent MacPherson strut suspension system, there is no camber gain due to the structure of the suspension system or to the length of the system. When you lowered the car, you will need to modify the system so that you can get ( I think hor) negative camber since by lowering the spring, the angle for the camber also change. Therefore you need to do add on mod to counter the changes..

As for coil over, dunno if you need to modify to adjust the camber of not.

basically to my technicality views...the camber toes will certainly be of help if ever chg to COILOVER.
coZ e position of CAMBER toE is outside range of the coilover itself.
its the angle of degree opening wen the car is turning
difficult for me to explain..maybe u seniors should take a look @ the position of wer E camber toe is located..on my car...(not sure it wers the same way as ur OPTRAS) Sleep study

done up my rotating/alignment/camber toe correction in spore..all for $42.
gd workmanship + super frenly workers.not boss.
open all days.yummy..
my b4 changed front tyres are fast balding @the sides due to the alignment of tyres that was not rectified/corrected after the change of wheel bearing.
so guys...learn from experience.go for re-alignment to avoid BALDING
