Here's my problem... I lowered my ZX3 with eibach springs and put rims on it. The back wheels are fine, but the camber on the front wheels are horrible, tires only last me about 5k miles, and the only place that installs camber kits is a good ways away. Now, I was told I can go to an alignment specialist and just get it adjusted. I also heard I'd have to buy the camber kit and make the drive to have it installed.

I'd like to know the best way to go b4 i go and blow a couple of hundred dollars.

I'm assuming you have Eibach sportlines. Most people have been able to get the fronts set at a reasonable camber spec and actually have more problems in the rear. It would be helpful to know what you current camber and toe numbers are. Maximum allowable front camber is in the -1.8 degree area. Our car with Eibach pros has -1.1 of camber which results in no visible tire wear. I suggest you try to get it to something less than -1.5 degrees. Front toe for normal street driving should be close to neutral or "0." Camber plates, if you do need them, are not that difficult to install. Your alignment shop should be able to do it if you're not comfortable doing it yourself.
