I have recently dropped my car and after getting my wheels and tires I was going to get my alignment done and they told me i needed a CAMBER KIT.. I have been calling around to discover that no one can help me find a place to buy a camber kit... have any of you guys who dropped your cars ever had to purchase this..??

search for a K-Mac kit. Probably the cheapest option in relation to CPP arms.

and do you really "need" to use a camber kit? haven't most people done their drops without them?

i personally don't think you don't need to. I'm at -1.5 degrees camber all around. for reference the infiniti g35 coupes' factory camber setting is -2 degrees and during the time i worked there I've only seen a few tires with camber wear. it was mainly wear from the toe setting being off. i have no problems with my camber setting as far as camber wear. and i set my camber using the factory camber adjustment

I'll be getting Koni COs sometime after Christmas. Should I tell the local VW shop just to allign my car or set the camber to -1.5 degrees. I would love the incresased handling but I'm not sure if they'll do this and I definetly can't afford premature tire wear.
