Troubleshooting your Mitsubishi Eclipse Camber Kit
Whether you have already lowered your Mitsubishi Eclipse, or you are planning to do so, did you know that having an efficient camber kit is important if you want to keep your tires from premature wear? We know that the lower your car is, the better it would look and perform. However, the truth is, the lower you want your car to be, the higher are the risks that your tire will get worn-out. Before you stash your cash on tire repair alone, here are some tips on how to troubleshoot problems that could be caused by your Mitsubishi Eclipse camber kit:
Having a camber kit on your Mitsubishi Eclipse doesn't make your tires immune to premature wear. It only helps keep the tires aligned when the rims are replaced or damaged. But if your lowered Eclipse seems to be wearing its tires more often than the usual, chances are, your camber kit is failing. Having a broken camber kit is not common, but you can usually know this if you will hear a popping sound that could be your camber kit. Usually, when your tires wear out, you need to check your camber kit if they are still in good condition. Check if you torqued them based on the correct specifications. Adjust or replace them once they are already damage. You can also upgrade them altogether to ensure that your tires will not be compromised.
Broken ball joint
Did you know that by having a broken upper or left ball joint, it could lead to a car crash? But did you also know that this could be caused by your camber kit? If you have installed a low-quality camber kit, expect that it could cause your ball joints to break easily. A good indicator that your camber kit is not functioning very well either due to its quality or its condition is having a bouncy ride or hearing an unnecessary noise. Just make sure that your wheels are aligned and that your camber kit is in good condition to keep it from putting your ball joints or even your car at risk.
