that is really good price consitering that the DP springs are $350 and these are custom F41 spec. plus they will arrive faster than the DP that are 4-6 weeks to arrive. this is huge

with the 2" drop please let up know about any camber adjustment that you will have/need, and get many, MANY pics

You will probably need the moog offset camber bushings to align that car (OR I would think you could take a die grinder and make the bottom oval hole on your struts a lot longer). The factory camber holes on the struts don't give you much room at all to adjust. I am definitely interested at this price! It will be an even better deal with a group buy.

I just set up my car with Ty'* 2" drop. He sent me the springs and a Ingalls camber kit, I got some KYB struts too. With the 1" drop stock struts will work but go with those Kayaba'*, I have a whole new car now. As far as an alignment goes, definately have it done, it will probably need it.
seems he bought a kit from ty to take care of it. might want to check and see if it'* still on ty'* site. might be able to find the same kit somewhere else...

(there were a few more posts, where it was mentioned that he had to adjust camber, but this was more specific on what he actually did)

What would be the lowest drop one could go with out requiring a camber adjusting kit,Do you think i could get away with a 1-1/2 in drop or say a 1 3/4 ? If not,out of curiousity what would be the cheapest route to adjusting camber to proper position.

You'll need one, smelly'* springs are a 2" drop but it'* not 2" on the body. I'd say get the a camber kit and install it if you can. Otherwise have a shop do it, or the alignment guys.
