Camber Kits

i have used the search button to hope i wouldn't have to post but nothing seemed to be useful... i have skunk 2 coilovers and wanting to drop my celica about 2" and wondering if i need to get a camber kit...i have searched and hardly seemed to mention a camber kit...i know it can only help but is it truly needed? i know an alignment afterwards but i am not sure about a camber kit and its free to ask...thanks for the advice...

i know i have answered this atleast 2 times before so search but a good kit is the eibach camber kit... when dropping your car more then... i think 1.5" you need to get a camber kit to adjust the mexican sag as it has been called here before.. lol rofl
so yes it is truley needed unless you like a good amount of negative camber...

actually it's 2" or more most of the time. You might want to check out hotchkis links too.

What about just under 1.5", like maybe 1.4" TEIN's? Cuz I hear if you don't do your shocks right, your alignment may be permanently screwed and that you'll never get it back to OEM specs.

While we're on the subject: TEINS vs Eibach. I hear TEINS are the best quality, but they're a lot cheaper than Eibachs (about 150 vs 200 with hookups). Is there anything due to tensile strength or durability?

Thanx.

they're both good quality, and you won't need camber links for Teins, you sure would with sportlines though wink

Damn, I guess that means I need to get camber links (I have Hotchkis springs yet to be installed)
