Going to lower my 00 zx3.. but

If I were to get lowering springs, say 1.5-2 inches, what else would I need besides a camber kit? I'm kind of new to "lowering cars" so any help would be great.

And if someone could recommend a good camber kit, I'd appreciate it.

Not sure about the camber issue. But you're going to have to change the shocks and struts. I'm using Eibach camber bolts in the back of mine. I left the front alone. I'm using H&R Cup springs and Roush shocks/struts.

Trying to find shock/struts by Roush but I've only seen some for 04+, any ideas?

For these years, they are the same struts/shocks:
2000-2005
2006-2011
then 2012+

Yup, definitely re-branded. I only bought them because there was a closeout by Roush on eBay. At that time, I think I paid about $20 for my Roush spark plug cover. Anyway, I have no preference. Just saying what I have.

No don't do that they will blow out within 1000 miles.
