i have the sportlines with no camber kits and its a bigger drop than the pro kit...sure i have a little bit of camber but not a lot. The prokit you really dont need a camber kit, it's only a 1" drop and you have much camber at all if any. just make sure you get an alignment after installation so they can fix the toe.

just rear, but you could get away w/o them (i do have them on my car with the pro kits tho.). wait a week or so for the alignment so the springs will settle.
I was wondering how long to wait before I got that alignment. I just slapped them bitches on today. Thanks man!

How is your rear camber? I need a camber kit something fierce. I will post up some pics tonight when I get my computer all reloaded (crashed it oops)

well I just put them on like an hour ago. So far it looks ok, but only time will tell how much they are going to go inward. I have toe like a mofo tho :/

Stock tires on pro kit..







Hope this helps.
It does...thanks...since the Pro-kit is lowering the rear more than the front, is the car balanced now? I am looking at the H&R OE and the H&R pro-kit systems...I don't need track handling just a little lower than stock and better handling...thanks

The handling has been improved yes. Its not a huge drop just enough to get rid of the fender gap. I wouldn't change springs if I had to do it over again.

So why wouldn't you change the springs if you had to do it all over again?
Was it not worth what you spent to have it only lowered an inch? or do you just not like the way it rides now?
Please share your opinions...
