A -1 or -1.5 degree of camber shouldn't wear your tires out too much more than normally, especially if you're good at keeping them rotated properly. Many others here are running -1.5 to -2 degrees just fine.
    FWIW...OE spec for rear camber on his car is -1.5

    Thank you for all of your opinion everyone. I'm hoping all this suspension work will be perform as soon as I get back home. I'm currently out of state and will be here for 3 weeks.


    Keep the comments posted.

    Regarding the Anti Lift Kit; are there any other add on's? Will I be replacing a part with this part? Sorry for the many questions, I'm not really a carguru, just trying to learn what I can do here and there for my car.

    I don't think that the rear came with any rear camber adjustability. You can add one per side, though.

    With a car that age, you're going to want to replace the entire assembly. With a $1000 budget, I'd say do the following:
    KYB GR-2 struts
    Swift Sport springs
    New OE mounts (F/R)
    Camber bolts (rear)
    Alignment (custom spec, not OE) - max out the front bolts as much negative as you can without cross-camber (-1.2-1.5), dial back the rear to -.8-1.0 (I like ~.5 less in the rear vs the front), and zero toe all around

    That will freshen up the struts (which are likely pretty worn on a 10+ year old car), give you a little better stance, a bit of a handling upgrade, while staying within your budget.

    Ride quality, looks, handling...all improved. Where the $1000 coilovers you were considering, wouldn't do all that.
    I agree with exactly the parts that Matt just suggested, except I would've done Tokico d-spec struts

    That uses up $850 of the $1000 budget

    It is adjustable stock. The crash bolts will just provide a greater range of adjustability.

    Lol, if the rear isn't adjustable then I must have been dreaming that I went to the alignment shop.

    i DD my car as well. dont really plan on tracking it with the excepting of MAYBE an autocross here and there. i ran eibach prokit springs for many years which were great but just wanted improved handling. i bought BC BR coilovers for well below $1k and i have to say i'm in love with them. i've had them for a few months now and have no complaints thus far. the car handles so much better and the ride quality is still pretty great. i know a lot of people prefer a good spring/strut combo which is a great recommendation, but i just wanted to throw in my 2c on "cheap" coilovers.
