We’re enthusiasts here at STILLEN, just like yourself. Whenever possible we like to get our hands dirty, especially when it gives us the opportunity to install some STILLEN products and get a real-world feel for them – just like you our customer will experience.
I drive a 2004 G35 Coupe, and after upgrading to 20″ wheels and installing an Eibach Pro-Kit and STILLEN Sway Bars, the resulting issue with camber on the front and rear was evident immediately, and I quickly realized that despite the fresh new rubber smell of the BFGoodrich’s I had just installed, these tires would be short-lived if I didn’t look for a camber solution ASAP.
That solution, thankfully, was a couple hundred feet away from my desk here at STILLEN, where we manufacture and assemble a full front and rear camber adjustment kit designed specifically to improve upon what Nissan left out, the ability to adjust camber in both the front upper control arm, or the solid camber and toe arms in the rear.
We documented the driveway install of these pieces, so others could get a feel for what went into the install. Thankfully I was able to bribe Kyle and Mike here in the office with ‘refreshments’ for the use of Mike’s driveway (alley?) and his impossibly robust set of tools (did you need a Razor-Blade-On-A-Stick™ to remove some window decals, yea he’s got one of those..), and both of their wrenching skills to tackle this job.
I’m happy to report that when all was said and done, alignment shop visited, the BFGoodrich’s were planted to the pavement as they should be, and tire wear is extremely even, with no signs of feathering.
