U will need at least camber bolts in the back, and probably camber plates in the front to get ur camber right, for even tire wear. Would also suggest matching shocks to your springs like the eibach pro or sport kit. And if you are looking for handling get sway bars they do more then shocks and springs for cornering

I have an 07 2.0L Duratec Sedan and I didn't drop mine that low but I went with the FRPP kit. When I got mine aligned I didn't need the plates up front but I did have to use camber bolts in the rear to get it aligned properly.

You may want to contact Mike from Hilbish Ford in the exclusive vendor section and pm him with what your wanting to do and he can set you up with everything you need at a fair price too.

I dropped mine that far. I used rear adj. camber arms and I needed adj. camber plate as I think the front was off like 3-4 degrees each side. It did look sweet though.

I have the FRPP kit as well. It's a sweet kit for the money. And no, you shouldn't need camber plates up front, just bolts in the back.
