I am wearing out tires because of my tires tilting out, I have been into the shop and they keep telling me that my camber is within normal specs...am I going
to mess anything up by just having someone make the damn things straight?

If your wearing our tires ..Then it is not in spec...What is the measurement they gave you ? Also did they give you a printout ,of before and after? I suggest two things .First off go get a second opinion...And ask for a printout...If they cant give you a record of the settings they probly are just setting the toe and not the camber or caster.Which if the camber is "good" what is the caster looking like?..There should be some type of garentee as to tire wear..This give you the good feeling that the job was done right...For about every auto there are "specs" but as anyone who works on autos knows "specs"sometimes done work...So Heres my advice Camber L 0.0 R 0.0 Caster L 2.0 R 2.5 Toe L 0.0 R 0.0 This is the spec that I was taught when all else fails....Even if it all lined you need to make sure none of the frontend is worn ...Balljoints pitman idler tierods ect....Or you may still have drag and tire wear....
