Question Camber and Spring question on 3yr old sportlines

Alright i have a couple of question i pretty much know for a fact that my sportlines have sagged over the years as ive had to move a couple of times with my car and it being loaded down with a lot of weight on shot struts and shock cant be good. So im getting ready to replace my shocks and struts and was looking at my front camber and it far from stock with 1`degree alignment kits full adjusted out, so i geuss the question is anyone runin with that much negative camber up front id say 1.5 to 2.5 degrees? also anyone ever use either of these camber kits? also if i get the chance tomorrow il post a pic of my front end

I'm pretty low on H&R coilovers without front camber correction and -1.8* camber. Wear seems to be pretty even across the tire. As long as you get your toe set to 0 for both sides, you can run a little over 2 degrees negative without seeing additional wear on your tires.

Hell I have -2.1 on all for corners of my car with -0.03 toe front and 0.03 toe rear. It rides great and wear seems to be just fine.

Plenty of autocrossers are running around with -2.5 on their daily drivers. It's only a problem is you have lots of toe with it.
