i was told i need a camber kit
i got tein s-tech springs and this guy that is going to lower my car for me told me i need a rear camber kit or just a camber kit because my tires wouldnt last for a week without one. Is this true? If it is where can i get a good one?

Did you get an alignment? There is a certain degree of adjustability, even with the stock suspension bits.

With only 1.4" drop you shouldn't really need a camber kit.

1.4"? nah, you'll be alright! but if you feel like getting some camber kit, go for it. it wouldn't hurt either, well, maybe your wallet...

nope, you dont HAVE TO need it.

just get an alignment after a week or two after your springs are installed.

The guy is a dumbass rofl You don't need a camber kit with the Tein springs. I had my rear slammed with Tanabe coilovers and the tires wore out evenly. The tires are gonna be tilted inwards a little bit, but it's not gonna wear out your tires prematurely. Having them tilted inwards gives you better handleling. Plus the stock camber can be adjusted thumbsup What I would get would be new struts if you have a lot of miles on your stock struts.

You dont need camber kit with S-Tech. What I normally do is check the tire pressure and make sure all 4 wheels are well balanced.
