The sway bar install should not have effected the Camber. Did you lower the car, and what sway bars did you install ?

A camber kit will solve the issue, just trying to figure out why the camber was effected.

So u added all the weight at the same time as your sway bars ? Your making it seem like u did the sway bars and alignment then the camber was off. 200lbs will lower the car and the camber.

1st i lowered the front 1.3 inches, then the system, then the rear sway bar (2 weeks ago) today the front sway bar and alignment...I don't think they did an alignment because I looked at the bolts and nut and they haven't been touched... Monday they will get a call...

You should, I had a shop put the car on the lift a came back saying it was done. I asked for the print out and the guy had a confused face. He stuttered and said let me go find it. He came back and asked me to wait for it. I then see them putting the sensors on the wheels, 25 min later a print out was finally given to me. LOL

Long story short, I now stand directly behind my car in the outside the bay and watch them. I know they hate me but I dont give a Fu$K. Try to screw me over and trust is forever lost.

I do the same exact thing whenever I take my car somewhere for work. I don't care if it pisses them off. With the customer watching, they will be much less likely to cut corners.

Sorry, Nothing to add but I really need help and can't start a thread until I've posted 10 times. This is likely bad form, and I apologize, but have no options at this point. (Post 1) Thanks,

wow this guy is serious! ^^
yeah the best thing is to stay by the car when getting your alignment. the place i go to there is a section where you can "watch" whats being done to your car. mind you im in toronto. how much did your rear camber kit ended up costing you?
