Not too much. Just moved to Denham a few months back. Still learning the area and such.
You wouldn't be from around Petes Hwy/Hwy 16 would you? Saw a white Si sedan a couple of times around there.

Question rear inside tire wear

im new here and could use some help on my civic si.

installed upgraded hfp suspension and rear tire wear on the inside was bad. i bought all new wheels and tires but need adjust rear camber. where in the new orleans area could i bring to to buy rear camber kit and have alignment done to fix this right, so i don't ruin my new tires. at a reasonable price.

thanks.

Well you could save yourself a ton of money if you aren't looking for total adjustability.

Look at your current camber arms and try to find a big white letter "C" stamped into them. It's pretty obvious and you can't miss it. If you don't have that letter, you can buy the OEM camber arms off a 2011 si and it will straighten your wheels. I have a set in my shed but I'm keeping them should I ever take off my rims and go back to stock, they helped my camber issues a lot.

yea, i don't care about total adjustability, i just want even tire wear so i don't waste money on new tires. i don't have any way to look underneath the car, unless i take the wheels off. i had shops install everything. unless i get a flat, i don't really mess with anything.

i don't mind driving to baton rouge to lightning motorsports, how much can i expect to spend to get this fixed?

thanks

You don't even need to lift it, just lay down behind it and look at the upper arms inside each wheel. You can get the OEM C-Stamped arms for $40 a piece IIRC.
