Re: Mods???

Gears, Drop Springs, tune, CAI. Basics are a good start.

Not unless you go super low. My understanding is that you just knock the rivets out of your factory plates and they allow enough adjustment. I lowered mine an inch and still set my alignment perfectly on a Hunter rack by doing this.

That I can't answer because I don't have the experience with them. I will tell you my factory plates were pretty close to maxed out. Camber JUST hardly went perfect with me yanking on it and someone else snugging the bolts.

I would just do them myself then pay for the alignment. Its a easy home project and you get to learn. There isn't much you can damage.

If you go over 1.5 inches of drop you will probably need new CC plates.

I'm not sure the h and rs have different drops. Mine are steeda sport springs lowered me about 1.25 inches. I was able to be aligned without plates. I would get the hrs though because they are progressive rate springs they will ride better.

I have H&R race springs and eibach camber bolts and they gave me plenty of adjustment. Plus they are under $30 compared to $200ish for plates and took me 30 minutes to install. Just had to get an alignment. But I could have gotten away without any camber adjustment but I wanted more negative camber that the stock adjustments would allow.
