Lowering Spring?

Has Anyone tired out the Eibach Sport line Extreme Lowering springs?
They say they drop about 2 inches in front and 2.2 inches in the back.
Would you need a camber kit to go that low?
or would it not make a difference?
Any info or advise you can give me would be great.
Thanks.

the drop is good, looks good, but theyre too soft for that much drop. handling and ride arent great and you'll need to find a really good strut/shock to go with them.

Hey Suffokate, haven't seen you around so Welcome to FF!

If you hop over to the Pacific Northwest group, you may be able to find someone local to ask. There are quite a few folks around here that have aftermarket suspension setups.

Also, its generally advised to get a camber kit when lowering a car more than 1.5" and the main thing it will improve is alignment. Your tires may wear unevenly due to weight distribution without a new camber kit. Which is bad :P
