Hi, need advice and confirmation from bros n sis. I noticed that the back wheels are slanted outwards at an angle if viewed form the back. Tried peeping under the car n noticed that the back suspensions setup are also mounted slightly slanted at an angle. is this normal? At first I tot that my JRD rims were the culprits, tried rotation(interchanged back to front) but still the same. Went ard to observe other Nissans, they are having the same look too though not that obvious. the back left wheel look more slanted than the back right one. anyway already did my high speed rotation and alignment, but steering still feel awkwardly light and slight vibration at a low speed of 110km/h, car still drifts to the left. steering also feels a bit jerky during turns and drifts. it is causing unwanted anxiety. wat seems to be the problem here? do i need to redo my alignment and balancing or swap tyres left to right? FYI i'm driving a nissan ss with 195/55 15" wheels wrapped wif kumho 712, recently i had hotbits strut bars installed. could this be a factor? any advice or comments?

could be the uneven weight distribution that is causing the slightly more negative camber at one side.......if not go to the alignment guys and ask them to check for you....

this am i went back to the shop which sold me the wheels and told him of my problem. he took a few moments to look and then remove my wheels. off wheel balancing and swop the wheels, front left with back left,front right with back right. next we took a spin on mandai road-bke-kje and back to woodlands road. along the way managed to redline up to 3rd gear with final gallop was clocked at 165km/h. slowed down on the way back to woodlands road as traffic was heavy. my take: steering doesn't wobble anymore, ride doesn't layang, bends taken with confidence and gusto. Ah pek beside me was egging me to go for 180km/h, din want to push it too far. surprisingly tyres were whisper silent. now that leaves me with just the slanted wheels looks, problem to tackle. ask him about it and he told me that it normal for n16, ask me to check other n16s or call tcm. will do that tomorrow. thanks for ur advice.

according to a knowlegeable mechanics friend, it's normal for the left to have a more negative camber than the right .. no reason was given though. physically check with a few cars including mercz, etc, and it proves to be so too...
