[quote="Paulnold"]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. Ive called the company back and decided to go with a 1-1/2 drop.I dont want to have to worry about bottoming out or speedbumps as much,I know its only a half inch but if it'll save me from spending more money on a camber kit or customization,I;ll have more to spend under the hood .

Camber kits are just bolts, washers and nuts, but you probably won't find them at your local hardware store. You may or may not need a camber kit at all. You won't find out until you get an alignment check done.
I still have the unused Ingalls kits that Ty sent me.

Thanks for the reply Smellbird, hopefully I'll be getting my springs in a few weeks and then I'll know for sure .

If you grind on the kidney bean shaped lower slot on the strut, using an air grinder, you can increase the amount of camber you can dial in.
