After installing drop springs an alignment is necessary to correct for the new decreased ride height.

The Camber kit is to correct extra negative camber on cars with more aggressive drops than is provided with our 1" Drop springs, or for customers looking to adjust Camber and Castor to their own personal tastes, typically but not exclusively for track use.

For just a 1" drop there should be more than enough adjustment possible within the factory adjustment points to obtain a proper alignment. Here is a link to our recommended alignment specs, you can print this page out and take it to your alignment shop and they should be able to set you up properly. We recommend you set the car to the Performance Street specs unless your planning on tracking your car.

Don't be afraid to drive your car on the street! Just take it to a good alignment shop in your area as soon as possible.

They shouldn't have a problem getting your alignment done with the OEM adjustability. I had mine aligned to the Pfadt street performance specs. It's suppose to give you a good mix of performance alignment and tire wear.

Yes just the wheel alignment. All cars will need an alignment if you drop them. The car drops down and changes the angle of the tire. Ever see those BMW's that are slammed and the tires sit an angle?

You don't HAVE to get an alignment. You can save yourself the $75 and drive around with a off alignment that will feel unstable and wear out $900 worth of Pirelli's in a short amount of time. The choice is yours.

Make sure your shop knows how to adjust Camber, mine didnt, I had to do my own research and the tires paid the price
