I have 17"s on my '93 and the inside of my front tires wear something terrible. My car is NOT lowered but it will be very soon. Is my car toeing out or what? When i get my springs will an alignment and a camber kit fix the problem or is the problem elsewhere since its doing it w/ lowering springs?

Wear like this is usually caused by a combination of too much negative camber (top of wheel tilts inward) and possibly some toe, either in or out. If there's any evidence of "feathering" of the tread, the toe is probably there.

and lowering your car will NOT help your negative camber. i doubt the toe will benefit either. definately get your car aligned after lowering
