There are also camber bolts you can order for like 20 a set. I don't know the degree to which they correct, but it beats paying for the camber links if your strapped for cash.

that is true, eibach sells them, but if it is a big drop, then they are not enough. i like the looks of the hotchkis, and it does have the stiffer bushings with grease fittings

no, the ride height is only affected by the springs, not the shocks/struts they are there only for the control of the motion, not the length of said motion

for example, if you take the shocks off the back of a truck, for example, it will ride at the same height, but you will bounce all over the place, do not try this, just trust me on this
