Hey guys, just wanted to see who adjusted their camber and who hasn't on an Eibach ProKit adjustment with KYB shocks.

I've read a lot stating it isn't necessary and an equal amount stating it is on this setup.

Opinions?

This is happening on Blackhawk tomorrow with a new axle.

If you go over -2.0 in camber, then worry about it. If you aren't, then don't worry about it, and the Eibach kit is only for the rear, not the front.

No camber adjustment required for me.

Then it shall be. No camber adjustment.

If and when I get new tires and an alignment, will I get shit from the shop for not having adjustable camber. I recall once having that conversation from when I last got an alignment.

I didn't need the camber adjustment and mine did just fine on the dragon.....

Anyone had issues with the fitment of the shock cartridges inside the front strut assembly? Mine appears to be too tall to get the cap nut in place. Do I have to hackoff the piece on the bottom of the cartridge to get fitment?

No modification should be necessary.

I made a nice, corrosive, cocktail and poured it in the strut assembly. Shook it, let it sit for an hour then hosed it out. The oil had caked up so hard that it was catching the cartridge. Apparently these were original inserts I pulled from the yard.

Gah, when I pulled my fronts they were in such good condition I could have re-used the oil in them. Guess yours got a touch more contamination.

Ironic enough, these were the clean rust free ones I pulled from the yard.

The ones on my car, were just about rusted through...

If it's just a 1 inch drop you shouldn't need an alignment, but it is recommended any time you change ride height.

The alignment's needed after you dismantle your suspension. Introducing an additional option for adjustment via rear camber is another discussion.

There is certainly a difference in alignment after I completed the front. Ill need new sway bar end links in the rear. If I recall from my last alignment, the guy at the shop seemed open to doing a camber adjustment had I used the proper hardware. So for a few bills spent on parts, its probably worth getting the additional adjustment.

Loving the changes thus far. Its like I have a whole new car. I missed having a solid suspension like I had with Christine. What a year.
