Hotchkins camber links will work with anything...
And i belive you need Hotchkins Camber links only if your drob aroun 2" or lower,If it's around 1.5" Your stock camberlinks will be ok to correct the alighment.
P.S.After you lower your car your rims wiil looks like that
/---\ front and rear and after alighment it should looks like that I---I. And you need Hotchkins camber links to keep your (REAR)rims straght koz stock camberlinks was not design for very low drop.
P.P.S. And for front you can buy eibach alighment kit for only $26

I had posted something like that awhile ago about Tein coilovers and Hotchkis strut bar. From my own experience it aided in destroying my front two dampers which cost me around $750 to get replaced air mailed from Japan. I still have the camber links on and have nothing to complain about them other than they are pretty rusted not the polished aluminum part.

Yeah I have eiabach groundcontrol too. They are just as good as skunk2 coilover. the tein springs are great but your not going to get the drop like you do w/ the eibach groundcontrols. w/ the tein springs you don't need the rear camber links. because the drop isn't enough. w/ your groundcontrols though you may want to replace your struts. to like a kyb or tokico. I am about to do that to mine in the next 3 weeks I'll let you know how it goes.
