I just bought the following.

Low king springs all around
2x Struts - munro gt premiums
set of shocks...same as above

$487.85 from repco.

I didnt need a camber kit, i doubt anyone with just lows would until the springs sag.

My car went to lows and needed a camber/castor!
You will find most cars will be different in the case of some need em some dont; however its more like most will need them!
What id suggest is just lower it, then when you go to get an alinemen ask them to check the lot, camber, castor.. then see how far out it is with the new suspension setup.
You will soon know if you need one if you drive around for a month or so without one, scrubbed out tyres ring a bell anyone?! :o

the shocks on the e-series falcons have the holder for the bottom of the spring built in, it's one piece.

I have only got lows and yet the camber kit I have (Kmac Rachet) is already at its max setting for neg camber. If I wanted even lower, it looks like I'd have to sacrifice the good camber (tyre wear) I have.
