    Hey everyone,

    I've done some research regarding adding negative camber to the Corolla, whether it be the camber adjustment bolts or a camber plate kit.

    Currently I'm running on stock suspension with lowering springs. I'm aware that coil overs do add a little bit of negative camber.

    If the members that have cambered their 8th gen Rollas can give me some insight and advice I'd really appreciate it.

    Mucho gracias mi amigos!

    So basically you want even more negative camber than is naturally achieved by lowering (more than 2 degrees)?

    I know there are adjustable strut mount top hats, usually built into coilovers, that can adjust camber.

    I want to know if there is anything else other than the adjusting top plates?
    This isn't something I'm dying to do, I just want to know if it's achievable without the top plates!

    You can do both to achieve more camber.

    People end up slotting the lower mounts on the coils for more adjustment at the control arm, and like previously stated, camber plates are available up top in the front. Not enough room in the back for plates.

    I support camber for performance, not for fitment!

    Love,THS

    Well, if you want to really blow through money, get coilovers.
    Not only are you getting a nice surprise for your bae, you can lower, and have full control of suspension elements. (Depends on the coilover, though.)
    However, the best way to go is coilovers. Better than cutting springs, and lowering springs.

    As a Corolla owner, cost efficiency is key! I ended up doing lowering coils a little while ago (prior to joining this forum). Now with my newly fitted wheels, I'm not too concerned about camber... for now anyways. :sir:

    Get custom made lower arms for the rear, adjustable. Win.
