    Default I'm not seeing it...

    LMK I can't see why some hoppers have a lot of neg camber. Unless the angle helps the tire to shoot out to improve height. Anyone sly enough to answer this question? It is a known fact that if you raise a car and then lower it, to do an alignment you need to roll the car back a few feet and them move it forward onto the turn plates. But does it really mater using neg camber when hopping ? I don't care for that joke of an angle and I set my car to the center to zero degrees of the ride height I like to drive at. Are some hoppers just copying others, or is there a real reason?

    Ahh man Coupe once thanks for clearing things up, I meant to say where the top of wheel is pointed to the outside, which is positive camber.

    i dont think it helps hopping at all, they just extend the uppers so the ball joint isnt at a bad angle when locked up and bulldog look is the result and somehow accepted as cool. The tougher way to fix the problem is to cut or bend the end of the A-arm where the ball joint mounts up to angle differently so the ball joint isnt at a bad angle. But that would be tough to measure angles and all and get both sides the same, just easier to extend 1" 2" 3", but yeah not the BEST way to correct the ball joint angle.
