Hi, new user here with my first post, so please be gentle :)

I am going to be installing an Eibach Pro-System Plus suspension kit (part #: 3588.680) on my 2004 Focus SE (2.3L). I want to ask a couple questions about this.

1. What will the change in the front and rear camber be?

2. What suggestions are there to bring the camber back to "normal"?


I know I need to buy camber plates, but it would be nice to know what angle to get prior to beginning the changeover. I've tried Google-ing it, and called Eibach tech support, but so far, no results.

Anyone done this type of upgrade?

Thanks

I wouldn't sweat any camber......Toe is what you should be looking at & paying attention to. I'd pass on the camber plates & get a pr of CFM's tubular A-arms= 1/2 the weight & a lot stouter then the oem arms as well as lot more forward bit. Super easy to adjust camber also. I've had my for over 10+ yrs w/ no issues at all. You'll also want to get a pr of rear toe links, makes adjusting the rear toe super super easy btw.

This. Additionally the springs will settle over a few weeks and may require another alignment. Inch and a half drop is not a big deal.

I have the sportlines which are even lower and I never bothered with camber plates. There's only a slight bit more camber than stock

Gaining a bit of negative camber is not a bad thing. As others had mentioned, keep your toe in line.
