: Lowering springs question...

I am seriously considering putting on Eibach Pro-kit springs with KYB AGX struts next month. Gotta stop that squat when I shift! Seems they get the best reviews...
My question is: Will I absolutely need to purchase the additional camber adjustment pieces? If so...whose?
Thx

Funny I just put in my SUS. on my new car 91 tsi.....well with the Eibach I dont think you would have much camber because it doesnt go to low, but if it is really bad I like mine I am going to get the turbo trix set up from JEFF.

Yeah that's why I'm wondering if I truly need them. The Pro-kit only drops 1" all the way around, supposedly.

Yeah my drop was about 2" with a set of SHYT(IN) TRAx. and the back got a little cambered out just enough to notice it. But Since that Kit only drops An inch you will most likely get away with it.

I have been told by guys with Pro-Kits on there 2g that the camber remained in spec. I would do it and get it checked before buying the camber correction kit.

Van you will need a camber kit. I already posted after your message in the other lowering springs thread. As I said in that post, my friend with a 2G and those springs had wear problems and his camber is as far positive as it can be without a camber kit. Granted it took probably 20-25K miles to get this way, but the inside edges wore out WAY before the outsides, all the way around. I would call Stillen and get their front camber kit, +/- .75 degrees for something like $80 for both side of the front. I would do the rear camber yourself. Check out the 2G Go Faster page for Alex's description. Ingall's Engineering also makes great camber kits, more $$ than Stillens, though.

I run the Eibach ProKit with GAB shocks (supposed to be *very* similar to the AGX) on a 92 Eclipse GSX and was able to get the car aligned to specs (just barely) without any kind of adjustment gizmos.

Do any of you guys who are running Eibach Pros also have a Thermal exhaust? if yes, do you bang it often. This is the setup I'm planning on installing.

I believe the MacPherson-type suspension on the 1G doesn't give as much negative camber when lowered than the 2G Multilink setup does. That's why you can lower a 1G 1 inch and have the camber change half a degree and drop a 2G an inch and have the camber change close to 2 degrees. It's a completely different suspension setup between the two cars.
