Today I went to my local Firestone Dealer to have my alignment rechecked. The right front camber could not be adjusted (-1.1 degrees). They told me I needed a camber essintric kit in order to make the adjustment.
I'm hoping that someone can enlighten me on what this kit is and if there is one on the vehicle at the present time, and do these wear out?

Thanks for your assistance,

Richard

Go to another alignment shop where they actually know what they are doing.
This place is just trying to rip you off

NEVER EVER EVER to go any Firestone dealer. I have been (or known people who have been, father, other relatives, friends, etc.) to several of them and they are always staffed by the lowest of entry-level part-time high-school kid wanna-be wrenchers and slimy snake salesmen. My own father went back to one place three times after having a "repair" done on his car, and eventually they told him they couldn't help him. He then went to a local guy who had it fixed in 30 minutes for less than HALF of what Firestone charged him to screw it up!

Just avoid them like the plague. I would rather go to the Stealership than to Firestone.

Also, their tires suck. (that's a subjective opinion though.)

Oh I'm not planning on going to a Firestone dealer. I just know that after my lift I can physically see that my camber sucks and needs to be adjusted and wanna make sure that it does
