Question Suspension Question

Is it worth going with Elephant Racing De-Cambered ball joints ($350) over regular OEM ($140)for a non-track street only 85' 911? Are there advantages even for a street car?

Thanks

Personally, I would not bother for a street only car. Chances are you'll increase tire wear and spend a lot of money on the upgrade and you will not realize any advantage on the street. If you alter your front end alingment, you should adjust your rear end alignment to compensate, so you will have to increase negative camber in the rear, as well.

For the street, you shoudl be able to get the negative camber you need for very good street handling with the stock components.
