You need to have the camber corrected on your car. Try to find a suspension specialist to adjust them. I had the same problem when I lowered my 430.

They are definitely wrong about that. There is a Camber and toe adjustment on your car. Good Luck.

To an extent you may be right. I've taken my car to have the 10" wheels adjusted and have adjusted the "camber" and the "toe" adjusted to proper spec. How did I accomplish that with out that adjustment ? No other bars were bent either.

I did not take my car to the dealer to have this adjusted. I took it to a suspension specialist in Miami called Miami Chassis where they specialize on performance vehicles and correct issues like the bowed rear wheels. I had them all adjusted. Believe me there is two degree adjustment that my car had and I can see the difference. I even have the diagnostic sheet breaking down where it was and where it is now.

thanks guys for your response! i found a shop who checked my alignment specs and found the rear wheels off camber by two. he said they can correct it. he knows becuase he has a clk also. but they said my factory stocks are shot due to the lowered springs. he suggests blistien shocks, are these good for a clk430??

I am using Bilstein sport shocks now. Seems kind of early for your shocks to be that bad. How long has the car been lowered ?

ive had the springs on for 23000 miles now. but i think the shop is right because my car has been feeling a little unstable lately on curves and tight manuevers.

rear camber

I have same problem in my car, the rear tire wear out too quick and it lean in on the top.I bring it to lots of aligment shop and they say my rear camber can not be adjust.so I have to buy a camber kit. If you want to buy, call this number 714-635-6414 ask for Jeff the kit is cost me about $245.00 but it worth it because each of my tire is cost around $245.00
