Re: Camber bolts a good option?

My guess would be between 1.5" and just under 2" drop.

So you think these could work or anything under a 2" drop?

This might be a stupid question but are they easy to use?

I have a set on mine. They were real easy to install, but I had a shop do a proper alignment for me since I don't have a camber gauge. Teamed with some H&R race springs, they improved the handling and turn in on my Bullitt greatly.

Re: Camber bolts a good option?

Yah you should be fine with 90% of the springs out there. The H&R's and Sportlines might be the only progressive springs out there that really need CC plates, and even then you could probably get away with camber bolts and a good alignment.

I couldn't since my front is over 2" after removing isos but I like the option to adjust later on with the plates.

Alright I think I will just do bolts then unles I want to go lower
Is there any disadvantages to not having insulators on the springs?

Re: Camber bolts a good option?

nope...isolators are there to keep creaking down...just wrap the ends of your springs in electrical tape and you'll do the same job but without lifting the car a bit
