You only need one kit.

The shims are used to determine how many degrees the front wheels sits. usually between -1 and 0 is normal

when you change over use a level on the wheel,vert. to start packing the shims in to get it close for the wheel alignment.you need 4 pivots,1 kit.

You will need one kit per side.

How much thread is remaining on the upper control arm mounts? That determines if you require a camber kit or not.

the std upper arm mounts are pretty much the same as the ones in the pic, except the thread is not as long..
although we just got our au aligned with the std upper mounts, and still had enough thread for the camber to be shimed up with enough thread left to saftly bolt back up..

that really all depends on how low the car is and how bad the camber is.
if the car has alot of camber and needs alot of shims you might not get away with using the std one..

Spring height isn't going to help if you need a camber kit or not. I had Superlow fronts in my AU and I DID NOT require a camber kit, and had 0.75° of camber with plenty of adjustment remaining. My Fairlane, on Superlows, does require a camber kit to get under 1° of negative camber. It is a car by car basis.
