TRD Coilover - After installed, do I need Camber Kit?

hey guys,

I just installed TRD coilover on my car and drop it to TRD specs. Now i'm wondering if I need to buy camber kit to correct the alignment. Does anyone know? thumbsup

you shouldn't need to adjust the camber if the drop is not too crazy...

You don't need it w/a 1" drop.

When I had my Celi I had Tanabe coilovers and I dropped the front 1.5" and 2" in the rear & my camber was fine...I never had any problems, so you'll be fine grin

yeah, it can be done if you follow the drop specs of TRD. no camber kits required but the alignment cost $130...

It would have been cheaper if you would have gone to a tire shop. Mine was only $50.
