Well, on my Civic, I have it slammed, and the back wheels are totally screwed up like / ---- \ Not that bad, but they're cambered like that. I only drive it like once a month so it's not like the tread goes bad real quick.
I just bought some new shocks/springs for my Focus, and I'm lowering it about 1.8" in the front and rear. Obviously the rear is going to camber, but are the rear cambers adjustable a little bit and should I be alright, or do I REALLY need a camber kit?

for the rears i highly recomend using the SPC upper control arms. the bolts dont work for shit unless your running the SVT suspension kit. plus with the upper control arms if you need more camber you have it.

I will second Blackcatn2o. I have the SPC upper control arms. They work well. Just one word of caution. When you take it in for alignment, be SURE you know how they adjust so you can SHOW the alignment tech (this is assuming that he/she did not install them). As I have said on a few threads, my alignment guy is pretty good, but he was trying to adjust the camber with a bar (shudder). And once installed, the nuts are in a dark place not casually visible. I did a 'show and tell' and he was able to adjust the rear camber perfectly.

x3 on the arms I ran on camber bolts for about a year and they didn't work at all, dig a lil deeper and buy the SPC arms, your ride quality, safety and tires will thank you

After I lowered my car I took it in for an alignment and the rear end was still in spec as far as camber. You won't know for sure if you need a camber kit until you get it aligned.

When I lowered mine also all I needed was the rear camber bolts to get everything aligned properly. But then again I guess it depends on how low you want to go.

Not to thread jack, but do you either get the bolts or the arms, not both...also if I got h&r coilover kit would I need camber arms and camber plates...?
