Whatever springs they put in your car are cheap and probably don't exceed 1.3". Get coilovers!

Tein S Tech springs are 1.5" so those will do the job. Those guys are retarded. Take it to another shop. You can go as low as 2-2.5" w/o needing a camber kit. I have my rear at 2.5" and my camber is fine...tires are wearing out evenly grin

I was wondering did you get your springs cut?

hmmm...I put in Tokico shocks/springs/struts which is a 1.25 drop (which is perfect for me). I took it to a local tire shop to get it alligned, and after they did it the tires cambered in at the top VERY NOTICEABLY. They said they couldn't true the camber w/out specs from Tokico. Well I was driving a long way to a Celi meet two days after that, so I adjusted the camber myself with a 3/4 socket and a level. Point is, I got it adjusted fine, but the eccentric camber bolts are pretty close to being max'd out. Not max'd, but pretty close. If you drop real low you might want to get some Hotchkiss camber links. Sorry for the long story!!
