I have the sport lines and love them... You do need an alignment, and i make sure to rotate my tires dilligently, just to make sure. I am still running stock dampers, you should be fine for awhile. There are a few on here who have had the stocks on with sportlines for awhile with no problems. You should try to budget for them as soon as you can, it will improve things.

hey, if ur comin down to norfolk..u should come and join our focus group down here.

back on topic.....i havent adjusted the camber on it yet (i know i need to) i got the shocks as well (eibach pro dampers) cause if u use the stock shocks with that much of a drop, they r gonna give out pretty quickly. so i just went ahead and baught the shocks cause i didnt want to worry about it down the road.

o and for ur tint ques. a place called tnt tinting down here will do it for ya. theres a lot of tinting shops. i got mine done at tnt.

You don't need a camber kit unless you go beyond a 2.0 drop.
