60,000, just like you said, it sounds crazy to purchase a "lowering" kit to solve the problem, but an Eibach Pro-Kit would actually raise my front end up.

As stated above, the camber is so negative that a lowering kit will actually raise my front end. I know, doesn't make sense but trust me..
What wheel and tire size are you using and what is the wheel offset? Has the car ever been in an accident?
I am using the factory SVT 5 spokes with 215/45/17 tires. One accident comes up on Carfax.
