YES!!! learn from my 300 dollar mistake... dont dodge it up. do it properly. i scored my camber kit from ebay for 15 bucks. went in tonight in under a hour.

this is what bad camber mixed with slight wheel lignment issues does to your tyres...

i got superlows and no camber kit - close to 35,000k's on the tyres and they are fine.

Some don't need them. Most do.

You should always get a wheel alignment after changing the ride hieght. It just makes sense to spend $35 to save you hundreds of dollars on tyres, not to mention the fact it will steer better.

This is true, some cars are a little different, but yeah most need them. They are cheap and easy to fit.

I'm a little under ultralow, with no camber kit, my camber is a little too far, but the tyres are still doing ok. As long as toe is good, and car hasn't had a major accident, sometimes you can get away with it.

However, i'm only running 15"steels, and will do the camber kit when i upsize to more pricey tyres.

There is some adjustment for camber from factory.
You only need a "camber kit" when there isn't enough to get the alignment back into spec.
Having said that, for how you cheap you can get them, pretty silly not to fit them while you putting the new springs in.

I got ultra lows all round on my car with 19" rims, and ive chewed through now my 3rd set of fronts.
When tax time comes, front is going back up to super low, and i'm putting in a fully adjustable camber kit, so when needed i can add a little camber for track days here and there.

Have these Nolathane Evolution kits in my EL. A little more expensive at around $170 both sides but alat easier to adjust, they dont move and have more adjustment than the shim type. Had the shim type on before these and not enough adjustment.
