      Recently installed the H&R OE sport springs and rear sway. What's the optimal camber to get a reasonable compromise between tire wear and cornering? No tracking, just the occasional spirited sessions.

      Cheers

      You shouldn't have any need to adjust camber other with just the OE springs, but you can go as negative as -1.8 and still be within factory specs. Front Camber is not adjustable unless you have aftermarket control arms. On the front fenders, there is a screw on the inside of the fender lip that can cause some rub, but this can easily be removed and is not needed.

      Thanks for the reply. The front camber is measuring -1.5°/-1.6° and the rear -0.4°/-0.5°. Does this mean the tires are going to wear uneven and to mitigate effects at the next rotation I should increase rear camber to match? The rears were set to what the alignment guy suggested is best for wear / handling but they seem a bit low to me.

      Cheers

      No you should be good as those are within Factory specs. The biggest issue you should look for is incorrect toe.
