yeah but you said most positive you can get

why so much in the back but so little in the front? is that stocky on altima's?

iirc, lowering can sometimes produce negative camber if you really drop it down.

perhaps the front has more adjustibility from the factory for camber than the rear?

i know my auto-x civic had to be readjusted before and after every race since i dropped it for auto-x and raised it for daily use (too low to be practical otherwise).

might be a similar case - lowering = more negative camber than can be fixed within the factory range of adjustments.

Yeah, the most positive is still a negative value.

That is exactly what is happening. The front is dropped 2.5 inches and the rear is dropped about an inch.

My front is within factory specs, but the rear can't get into specs without a camber kit.

Hmm... and here I thought imports could adjust alignment easier. I'm running -2.1 right now with stock control arms. Once I get the tubulars, I should be able to go up to -3*
