Sorry i know you guys get asked this all the time...

okay so heres the deal. I just ordered the tanabe df-210 2" drop from supra store.com. Acctually i ordered two sets of springs by accident and i need to cancell one but the customer service isnt open right now. But thats a different story.
My question is i have read that people said i would not need camber links in the rear. Is that correct? anyone have these same springs or similar? I dont need 0.0 camber..acctually i dont want it. I guess .02 neg is acctually what i want, right? Also will i need the eibach camber bolts for the front? Thanks for the help and sorry for a question thats asked all the time but every time there is always opinions that vary.

hmm...i used to ask that too..and the most answer i get is YES u'd want a camber kit to keep ur treadware even. if not it'll run out faster n u'll buy new tires a lot more often than you should. i just ordered a set of hotchkis rear links..already excited to get em on... tasty

No you will not need a camber kit with a two inch rear drop. Any good alignment shop can bring the stock camber settings back. the camber kit is meant for easy and fast adjustments.

if they can't align the camber in the rear close to stock, then you need a camber kit

Agressive negative camber is not the tire killer as most are led to believe, It is the toe that does them in. I've got zero degree toe front and rear, -1.5 degree camber frt and rear and my tires are worn perfectly.

i also have the tanabe DF210 springs on my car and i have yet to get an alignment. i've heard that you can use the stock camber plates in the rear to adjust the camber. and just like you i have also heard you need camber bolts for the front. the eibach camber bolts were only about $26 so i was like what the hell and bought em anyways. there's some dude on here that has the tanabe springs and said he didn't need the camber bolts for the front wheels though. so i don't know what i'm going to do... i'm gonna let the shop have a look see and i'll let you know when i get my alignment done by this upcoming thursday night.

I have Eibach Sportline. It is 2" drop. I didn't need any camber kit. Shops that tell you to buy the camber kit is after your money.
