+ shorter life of tires=more prone to use cheaper tires=less performance of tires

Negative camber is mostly better for cornering grip and stability... also negative camber up front will help with turn-in.

Sort of true... only in a straight line. When you're going around a corner, the negative camber means the outside tires are now rolling over onto the full surface of the tire and therefore provide more traction - instead of rolling over onto the shoulder/sidewall of the tire and losing contact on the inside of the tire.

Not really true. Negative camber by itself will not really affect the life of the tires (unless you're running EXTREME negative camber and never touch the outside of the tire - which is just dumb and you should expect to go through tires fast). Where most people have a huge problem is negative camber combined with an incorrect Toe setting. This will chew a tire up pretty quick depending on the severity.

I've been running -2 up front for the last two years and have perfect wear on my tires. Rear has probably been at around -1.5 for much much longer and I've never had a problem after getting it properly aligned.

So you asked a question that you already knew the answer of and then changed it to a different question?

no you don't have to buy new enlinks as the stock ones aren't weak at all, you can slightly adjust the camber them whenever you go get an alignment but don't try adjusting it yourself at home.

As long as you take it to the Pros and let them align and dial everything in properly, it will ride great. Just be sure to understand how much camber you actually need before you tell them what you want.

Ok Yeah I have searched this Forum and Google and have been looking for a definite answer on how to fix the ticking sound coing fro the glove box area from the A/C system. I have seen multiple people complaining about the same thing, but nobody has yet to say a definite answer to a fix. No there is no warranty on the car anymore. I even took it back to the dealer I bought it from and they took apart the motor compartment for the A/C under the glove box area and pulled out a bunch of leaves, but its back. I drove away from the dealer when they said they "fixed" it, but guess what, its still has a faint ticking. When I press the button to make the air blow faster and colder, the ticking gets faster. When it is at the lowest setting for air flow, it ticks loud, and kind of sounds like a ball bearing that is stripping, or not revolving completely. Anybody know what the fix is for this? A/C works perfectly and blows cold, but that ticking is effin annoying. Ive searched for a definite answer, but nobody posted any fixes for it.

you sure it coming from there?

could be your belt or A/C compressor since your saying it speeds up when you turn the A/C up.

i havent had A/C in my car for a while but if i remember correctly mine did the same thing. And if you say youve heard alot of others have the same "problem", it may just be a toyota "thing". Kind of like how toyotas are notorious for loud valvetrains
