You will need a front alignment kit , but rear camber plates are not necessary.

For rear alignment correction. But your stock camber plates will work fine. You will have alignment not far from the perfect if you use your stock plates.
P.S. Or you can get hotchkins camber plates for $230-250

those camber links fix your camber, an alignment shop can only do so much but from lowering you wheels will still get negative camber in the rear wheels. negative camber is when the top of the wheels lean towards the middle so it looks like your wheels are tilted. for sway bars you don't need anyother suspension parts that it doesn't come with. you get everything from the producer. it would be more effective you had adjustable camber links, adjustble camberplates, coilovers, adjustable endlinks, and a stiffer suspension but you don't NEED it.

you do not need to ahve a lignment or camber plates from the sway bars you need em if you drop 2 inches or more.

if he has eibach pro springs he is fine they are the same as TRD.

if he has eibcah sportlines he does cause it is too low.

sway bars to nothign for camber and alignment, or ride height. they jstu help prevent body roll

i recall reading post where people had dropped their car and were talking about getting camber link and i was just wondering why. so anything more than 2 in. you would need camber links and anything less than 2 in. you wouldnt?

man you guys are really getting bad info, cause you guys are really confused.

Sway bars help with cornering, and prevent body roll.

Dropping the car too low will cause the tires to have negative camber, this will require camber links to correct. adjusting the camber can give you better grip becuase it controls the amount of tire that is touching the road. it's kinda hard to explain cause i'd just have to show you.

^ true

Just buy the sway bars & you'll be fine. You dont need the camber plates to install the sway bars. Everything to install the sway bars comes from the manufacture, whether it's TRD, Eibach, or Hotsckish (sp)
