Suspension question ?
I lowered my car with an eibach pro kit springs on stock struts. This mod made my wheels flare out to the outside a bit, causing uneven tire wear. A camber kit would fix this problem, but my question is, would i need a camber kit or would buying eibach shocks that matches with pro kit springs fix this problem.

Shocks have nothing to do with camber or ride height. You will need to get either camber bolts or camber plates. smile

uh...shocks do have a role in height.

and no matter what you get...you will have to get them realigned and have a camber kit I think
confused
I am not totally sure on this.

ummm, only if you have air shocks, do they. springs, not shocks affect the ride height. while shocks do control the speed of the suspension through its travel.

just get one of those lifetime alignments at tire shops and you'll be straight, you can have them align your tires as often as you want as long as you still own your car..it's a one time payment for about $150 or something, but it'll be worth it thumbsup

I think that's lifetime balancing. Lifetime alignment would mean I could change my shocks, springs, or any suspension work & go for a freebie after each since that would put my car out of alignment.
I would suggest getting a good alignment 1st & monitor tire wear etc. Mine was really out after I installed my h&rs, which are a hair lower than the prokit. The dealership was able to get it back to stock specs.
If you had sportlines I would say get their front camber kit(bolts) for them. Our stock rear has some camber adjustment.
