that is not true at all. All cars when lowered is going to be on a butterfly position, thats why the alignment is kinda screwed up once its lowered. Camber kits in fact aligns back the wheels in the upward position. In fact, yesterday I saw a Civic Si and damn that car was straight up out of alignment. The wheels are slanted as hell. By the way, anyone know where I can get camber kits cheap??? I dont dink it really matters as much.

I have sportline and I didn't need any camber kit. The back is fully adjustable. A good alignment shop will be able realign your wheels back to 0 camber. Don't let any shop tell you that you need camber kit. They just want you paid extra. Just a word of advice, having slight negative camber is good for handling.

I lowered my car about 3 months ago with Dropzone springs, Have't heard much about them so I thought oh what the hell ! the front dropped about 11/2 " and the rear @ least 2"
after all the work was done i had the car alligned. Like mentioned before there is a lot of play with allignment on the factor cambers. Toyota specs state the car can be maintained with 1 - 1 1/4 degree off without worrying about improper drag or wear on the tire. thumbsup

yea i have the hotchkis cambers and i love the front camber its so nice with my teins, anytime i need to adjust the damper its just a couple of bolts off the top and a twist here and there and im ready to go takes about 10 mins to adjust. Plus it was easy as hell to install the fronts since i replaced the whole thing
