    If you lowered it of course there would be a problem but if nothing then the upper control arm is probably bent?

    lowering the car generally results in negative camber /____\ not positive camber like he is describing \____/

    as blanco said
    i was not flaming you, i was correcting you
    there is a big difference

    all i was doing was explaining that while yes lowering a car does indeed have an effect on the camber it does not have the effect that the OP is describing. actually it generally has the opposite effect on camber
    therefore it is highly unlikely that the condition that the OP is experiencing is or could be caused by lowering the car

    relax
    we generally dont flame too much here
    we are much more laid back than some of the honda boards you might be use to

    after thinking about negative camber, you maybe could have hit a rock on that side and damaged your lower control arm bending it and shortening the gap hence a negative camber?

    okay positive I mean like this \_/ if the lower control arm gets bent it would shorten the gap and pull the bottom of the tire in towards the center of the car... Sorry I got the + and - mized up...
