Hi all,
Just bought the Eibach Pro-Kit 35108.140 for my 07 Sedan. Also bought Tokico HB2242 and HB2243 struts for the front. Ran out of money for the rears they will have to wait. I also bought 1.0 degree camber bolts for the rear. It's only a 1.5 inch drop I hope it's enough.

I am confused on how they work. The instructions say to cut off a bolt at the upper control arm. I assume this is the bolt above and behind the brake drum. Well this bolt runs from front to rear. I just don't understand how this would cause the wheel to travel further away the vehicle(\). Does anyone have any pictures of this with the wheel off.

Believe it or not I'm reading all the instructions first!!! Just want to make this as smooth as possible. Many thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. I decided to wait for the alignment shop. Being that my drop is so minimal I may not need it. I replaced all my springs today it took me a total of five hours. The first strut took 2 hours the second took 20 min. I will have to take one down again, I didn't tighten the large nut on the end of the strut enough. It is sitting about half an inch higher. Overall the install is not bad once you have all the right wrenches ready to go and an impact gun!

Most alignment shops will put the camber bolts in for you ( for a fee , of course) if they are needed.
