?EIBACH REAR ALIGNMENT KIT ONLY $20.99?

Has anyone ever used them? i know hotchkis rear camber links go for over $200.00 and i just found a website that sells what they call the "eibach rear alignment kit for $20.99. and well thats a huge difference. If this adjusts my negative camber from my sportline drop then perfect! this will easily save me $200.00. On the other hand i have heard..you get what you pay for. The thing that confuses me is that this seller is from a direct link on the eibach website. Tell me what you guys think!!!!!!

ive checked into it a little more and the three direct links from the eibach website as online dealers all have this product for under 23 bucks. this seems too good to be true. i was already saving up for a hotchkis camber kit, but i guess this will do everything i need done..which is fix my camber... i wonder what the hotchkis camber links do that this Eibach alignment kit doesnt. thumbsup

The Eibach kit is two small bolts that go onto the end of the stock camber arm and allow 1.75 degrees of adjustment. The Hotchkis links are complete replacement camber arms that are polished and much beefier than the stock arms.

They won't fix the camber completely. I read that the Celica get horrible rear camber and a 2.4" drop in the back should put you just of 2 degrees that you will need to fix. The Eibach only lets you adjust 1.75 degrees and the Hotchkis will let you go to 3 degrees. I would highly suggest paying more and going with the Hotchkis Camber kit, because in the end it will be the best. I also, am selling my Hotchkis Camber Kit that I never installed, if you want more details just PM me.

My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10

Sice you say that this kit only gives you a 1.75 degree adjustment wouldent we be able to adjust the other degrees of camber with the stock adjustable camber our cars have. cool

Hector check your PM. thumbsup

I was slammed almost all the way on my old HA's and was the person that was 3% of negative camber in the rear.
I have the SSP's now and sit a tad bit higher and the shop that did the alignment had no problem getting them to my specs. or Toyotas stock specs. for camber.
I have the camber links by the way.
I would not perceive a problem with a "slight" drop around 2" and those bolts.
I looked at those same bolts a year ago. I wouldn't say that's the way to go. Looks and performance are two different things.
Of course I have camber plates also in the front and the alignment place said I was close to acceptable or stock specs. after install.
The crash bolts from Toyota were not an option in my mind.
I run an aggressive alignment and nothing for show.
