well, i just got springs, and installed em.. it did make the camber go off only in the rear.. front is regular... but it isnt that bad.. its hardly noticeable for the normal driver. and as far as shocks go, you can ride on stock shocks for about 50,000 miles.. that tony guy has been on sportlines with stock shocks for 2 years now from what ive heard and he has had no problem. and for alignment, you dont need bushings, or camber kit.. the shop i went to was a alignment shop, and they did the camber alignment for me.. i didnt need the hotchkis camber links, or whatsoever.

check here, i talked about camber on this page

1.8 in the front, and a 2.4 in the back..

1.5 finger wheel well gap in the front, and a 1 finger wheel well gap in the rear)

i hear that after it settles, the drop is about 2" front, and 2.4 back"

does it handle better? you still rolling on the stock 15's right so lots of rubber so it prolly doesnt ride to rough huh? i want to srop mine, i have money for springs but not shocks yet and i heard if you go over 1.5 drop you should get them. plus im almost at 50k too. guess i should just keep saving until i can get everything.
