Question front camber adjusters: Eibach vs. Specialty Products

I want to adjust camber on a ZX5 with the SVT suspension. My goal is to be make the car neutral, maybe at around -1* camber for street/mountain road performance.

Eibach:

Specialty Products:

So what are the pros and cons?

So far I know the Eibachs can't adjust caster. Is this a big disadvantage? Do Foci with SVT suspensions benefit from more caster? Any other disadvanages?

Also the SP has the disadvantage of increasing damper shaft side loads and binding/stiction when at the larger end of the adjustment range. How big a problem is this if you want to add say only 0.5* of camber and/or caster? The K-mac ones are supposedly better in this regard, but are very pricey. (~$370 vs. $88)
