Well I emailed Prosuspension about that kit for the front and rear and no response........if I'm going to shell out $231 for this thing you would hope to hear something in at leat a week right?

Anyway I'll ask you guys I have a 1996 Taurus withe 17"rims and with the Roush springs will this kit fix the alignment problems and the inner tire wear. Thanks in advance.

well being a aliangment tech you should put it on the machine and see how much it is out and then you can calculate what needs to be adjusted and then you can then figure out how there are many little tricks without a kit(never used one yet),you need a real good aliangment guy who knows what he is doing

i have the kit installed on my car. Yes, it will fix your tire wear problem.

Don't buy the rear end kit, you don't need it, but if you want one I'll sell you the I bought and never used for cheap


The front kit is fun to install. You have to remove the bolts in the strut mount and mount the camber plate to it using the supplied hardware. I found out later after everything was back together that the supplied hardware was a little too long and the bolts were rubbing the strut mount everytime I turned the wheel. I've fixed one side, but haven't been able to disassemble the left and fix it yet. My suggestion is, once you have the camber plate mounted to the strut mount, grind the bolts down to the nut. The heads are countersunk.

You have to set the adjustment before you install the kit, and once it is installed the only way to make further adjustments is to remove the struts/spring assembly. Luckily, my guesstimation was correct and it was set perfectly. The alignment shop did not have to make any camber adjustments.

I was getting some uneven wear before installing the kit, now everything is fine.


let me know if you have any more questions. I've taken the front suspension apart three times now and it's a pain
