If you want. It's not really enough to put you in a dangerous alignment scenario. If you're concerned about tire wear you can spend the extra $$ and get CC plates.
I do not have them.

Well everything came in from fordracingparts123.com - I was kinda surprised because every place I had tried to find the ZX3B springs they couldn't get them but these got drop shipped straight from Ford racing?

Total paid - $344.17 including $42.87 shipped to the house.

Guess I know what I will be doing this weekend.

if i'm not mistaken, you'll have to grind off the nut thats welded on the outer control arm for the outer control arm bolt to get those camber bolts in.

If you dont have a grinder, a breaker bar should pop those nuts off as well but you will still need to file down the weld spots. The spot welds on my toe arms broke free pretty easily while i was trying to remove my seized arms there (same style spot weld/nut)

I would see about getting a refund on the camber bolts. Waste of money IMO.
If you want to adjust the alignment, you should buy adjustable arms instead.

Didn't get the suspension in but did replace the brake drums and put new shoes in. My bearings was totally shot and still not that noisy. In fact if I didn't read the forums here I wouldn't have thought anything of the slight noise I did here and might have ran the wheels right off my car.
