MATE!!!  If you can find the answer to these questions you are a god..

The same thing with my car.  I lowered it using apex springs and shocks about two weeks ago and since then have had the camber and tracking done 3 times yet it still drives like a pig.  The car seems to have lost all traction on bends- especially in the wet even though i have put on two new tyres on the front etc..

It feels funny in the bends, pulls to the left- even though the steering wheel is on the piss to the right??  What the f**k is going on???!!!!!

If all the steering/suspension geometry is correct, and you had no problems before the kit was fitted, then i would look at the quality of the kit you put on.
