is anyone running rear lowering springs without a camber kit?
after installing new h&r springs and ford racing dampers .. how do u prevent uneven tire tread wear?
do u need a camber kit or just a good alignment?

Depends on how low you go, anything 3" or lower is going to require a camber kit. 2"-2.5" is fine with a good alignment.

Keep in mind that all tire wear isn't from camber. Mine had bad toe, which obviously can be fixed with a alignment, or you can do it your self.

I thought that was Carl's tire.

Nope mine.

I'm running 2" drop springs on mine, as long as you have no toe (get a good alignment), the camber won't make to much of a difference. Just to be sure, I rotate my tires front to back every month or so just so all wheels get even camber wear, along with the usual rotations that you're supposed to do anyways.

Which H&R springs? If they are the sport springs, those are less than 1.5" and you shouldn't have any real issues.

If you found a set of cup kit springs that are 2"+ drop then you might have some camber issues.

yes h&r sport springs 1.5 inch drop, I don't want my car that low lol

Then get the frpp kit from ford gives you the .5 drop same as the SVT.
