Thank you for a [mostly] non-smug and educational response!
I never said a small amount of toe or camber....was going to eat tires or implied it was going to. (What is your frame of reference for small amount?), stock "green" alignments in the rear of VW chasis cars in general are not thread life friendly(nor is the on spec toe, the undereducated seem to be getting from the alignment techs...). All I did was point out the deficiencies in your statements or that our statement is subjective to you are your feelings. And since we are all in our "feels", at can't admit when we were missing knowledge, and want to call me an ass. Your camber not changing after the pro kit....regaurdless of what your spec sheet says is an inaccurate statement....if you toe changed, your camber changed, you reduced the ride height your camber and toe changed, you got springs and shocks installed...your camber changed. What you feel about your alignment and it being good for you...awesome but you making statements that are either subjective or untrue, which i was partly pointing out below. You also stated the eibach kit is stiffer....what are the stock spring rates and what are the eibachs?....you didn't and don't know, you were just making the assumption they are stiff(er) because of "the feels". At times depending on application with progressive rate springs, what eibach usually does, the spring is softer through part of the compression than stock. You made statements a without much of an understanding. Which is exactly what I was pointing out in my post and is why you needed the hive mind(s) concorence with post #24 of the thread, you didn't know for sure.To be clear, you questioned the camber not changing on my application after lowering with Eibach ProKit springs. I simply posted the alignment sheet to show that this in fact was the case. Not sure how that translates into posting "alignment sheet after alignment sheet."
Again, to be clear, I made two statements: one being that I have not experienced any abnormal tire wear from OBSERVATION, and I also feel as if the car handles incredibly well for me and how I drive. You're harping on the second statement and ignoring the first.
You're educated about this stuff, but you're also an asshole. The two are not mutually exclusive here.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge nonetheless!
He probably should leave his alignment the way it is....green on the machine. If he "says", he isn't experiencing any abnormal tire wear. His car handles "incredibility" with his alignment specs...so he probably shouldn't touch them.
He also is "sure" what was causing the thread posters issue, and lowering his car..."didn't change his camber.....at all." but did throw his toe out of "whack", but certainly, didn't affect his camber at all. It definitely needed increase rates of the eibach kit.
And he's a doctor....of golf Rs, so I trust him. All his statement align.
You were insinuating things, and responding, to situations or statements interpreted in your head, that I never specifically stated. I never stated specifically just camber kills tires....see you BS below....the poster was concerned about tire wear, so I gave him a spec, focused on the best tire wear...which is minimal camber and zero toe. VWs....green on the machine spec....can and usually wears rear tires prematurely for most people, whether they(or you) understand/notice it or not. Again... your own post #24 of the thread...re-enforces what I said earlier.
Completely a false interpretation...of my statements, and your comments seem to be centered around a false mental construction of what I said. Not suggesting you "made up" anything...just that your feelings of stiffness ....lol.... and handling incredibilty are subjective to you.So you’re saying the OP’s reported issue was caused by -2 deg of camber in the rear? Come on.
