    Seems that some will use them some will not. Lowering the car will increase the negative camber in the rear. Some think this is OK. I wanted some taken out, one for tire wear issues, and also to make the handling a little more neutral. The alignment guy said he could not have hit the -1.0 that I asked for in the rear without using the camber bolts or he could have elongated the holes on the strut.. but I'm not sure I like that method, glad I had the bolts.

    I guess it's up to you..

    Do you NEED them? No

    Are they a good idea? I think so.

    You can also pick up the eibach kit for under $30 from tirerack. I think its worth it just so that you can make sure you have equal camber on both sides in the rear and get the front/rear camber differential that you want.

    It makes no sense to me not to get it. It is only $30. The bolts have to come out anyway, and you are going to have to get it aligned anyway, so it is really silly not to.

    Where did you get the specs from for your allignment? Did they simply dial them in within stock specs? Or did you give them specific numbers. I'm getting an allignment this week, and would like more info.

    you are correct. one for each wheel in the rear. the front camber bolts already comes with the car.

    I just had my car alligned to the stock specs after my eibach install, and the rear camber bolts weren't needed. I already bought some though, so I'll probably keep them in case I decide to readjust my allignment for a more performance oriented setup.
