It's been mine all along so I know no aftermarket springs were installed but I'm starting to think I should just get used to the wear since it's not severe. > Brother Stamp is quite correct about the camber question (assuming it's > wearing like negative camber)..

I might think about it if it was my old 900SET but this is a Viggen and the thing corners so good, I tend to wus out before the car gets to the limit. For a FWD car the thing is just plain phenomenal...and it's got a ton of accelleration. Every once in a while I think about getting a new car...then I go shredding in the Viggen;) FWIW, I put a good set of urethane bushings in my 900SET and I was floored at how much of a difference it made. Best $50 I spent on that thing. Even my Saab mechanic said it was amazing.
