ok first off i did actually do a search this time before i posted(im so proud of myself lol) i found this thread on camber adjustment
http://http://www.ul...mber adjustment
not sure if that link worked or not, hopefully it did.
now i might just be a little too numb to understand it right now or maybe i might a little.
its saying to adjust the camber you would crank on the nut in the middle top of the strut, am i correct on this? if so what way would i probably need to turn it to get it so the bottom of my tires arent leaning in?
and i will admit i may have missed where it said it which way.
any help would be appreciated.

no no no NO

you need something called a strut plate or camber plate. they are marketed to imprezas but fit your car

see how it allows you to position the top of the strut ideally

We've got D2 camber plates here at Prestige for somewheres around $140. I'll need to double check the price tho.

Your tires look like this? \ / or like this? / \

If it is the first one then I would guess that you have your suspension cranked up. If it is the second then you have a weak or bent strut. A camber plate will help but is an expensive alternative.

they look like this \ / not too bad but i only adjusted it up halfway to even it out a little from putting the rears on the top setting, i was wanting to put them up the rest of the way but i know if i did then they would be pointed way too much inward. it did a little better today with a little extra height offroading.

we have a place here called the 'dunes' that within a relatively small area you can test out your ride on most situations from rock crawling up about a 30 foot spot to dirt hill climbing and whatnot

why is it the cars dont have any adjustment? every other car i have ever owned has had some type of adjustment
