Ksport Coilovers...

I'll be quick since I've made a thread about a similar topic and I don't want to ramble.

I'm going to eventually get around to buying a set of Ksport Kontrol Pro coilovers. I already know which kit to buy but I was informed that I would need an additional camber kit for the rear, even though Ksport's site says that I won't. So I was just looking for a second opinion.

Other than the coilover kit itself, what will I need?

Thanks.

pretty much anything over a 1.5" drop and you will have alignment issues (toe and camber). It's best to get a kit for it to save your tires. Check out the ones that Massive has. I have to old style ones and love them.


Here are the camber arms:

Thanks a lot for the info. Another question, though.

Will I need one for each wheel, or will the two that appear to come with the packs suffice?

Sorry for my lack of knowledge, I've tried researching elsewhere with no results.

The kit comes with two arms. One for each rear corner.
