Mitsubishi Eclipse Camber Kit

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:

Tire wear

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.

  • Mitsubishi Eclipse Camber Kit Maintenance Tips 27 February 2013

    If you want to keep your tires from premature wear, then you should know how to take care of your Mitsubishi Eclipse camber kit as well. This kit helps to keep your tires aligned to ensure that they won't succumb to tire wear anytime soon. You can also feel the difference when your camber kit is in good condition or not. A bumpy ride versus a smooth, seamless drive-you choose. All depends on how you are going to maintain your vehicle's camber kit and other components. Here are some tips on how you can take care of your Mitsubishi Eclipse camber kit:


    Have a regular camber-alignment.

    Nothing beats knowing the accurate measurement of your vehicle's camber. This could not be done solely by visual inspection, rather by having an experienced mechanic to check your wheel alignment using a camber gauge or other advanced equipment. Having too much positive or negative camber could wear out your tires, so it is important to have your wheel alignment checked regularly. There are also DIY techniques on how you can measure your vehicle's camber, but if you want the best and accurate details, have it checked by two mechanics for you to be able to compare the results.


    Inspect for signs of tire wear.

    Check your tires once a month for signs of premature wear. A poorly installed camber kit could cause them to wear out faster than their expected lifespan. Your tires could have a one-sided wear, bald spots, or a saw-toothed wear pattern, which could all be caused by wheel imbalance or poor alignment due to a failing camber kit. When this happens, make sure that your camber kit is in good condition to avoid damaging your tires further. Replace your damaged or broken camber kit and worn-out tires as well.


    Slow down.

    If you want to keep your tires and your camber kit from wearing out, then slowing down when driving could help. But if you are more of a racer, just make sure to take time to inspect your vehicle's components if they are in good condition and the right specifications before you hit the road. This way, you would know if there are damaged parts that should be replaced immediately.
