Alignment after lowering

hey folks,

today i tried to get an wheel alignment for my 02 gt which i lowered with h&r super sport springs/ no isolators.

the mechanic said that i need new camber plates to align the front wheels and if i keep my car lowered without an alignment my the car is going to start eating my tires

maybe you guys know which camber plates go good with my setup.

thanks in advance

Doesn't really matter.. I'd say the MM Caster Camber plates would be fine

Not to thread jack, or anything... But how much should one expect to pay for an alignment? Not looking for an exact number, just a ballpark. I'm going to need one after I install my Christmas Gifts.

When I got my alignment done after lowering my car it cost about $80 or $90 for a 4 wheel alignment.

Why did you pay for a four wheel alignment?

At the place I went to (1 min walk down my street haha) they only do 4 wheel alignments. Weird, but it was so close to my house that I just had them do it. Are more places now days only doing 4 wheel alignments? That's what I was told by this mom and pop shop. Everything turned out good, car doesn't pull to the left anymore.

Most cars do need a 4 wheel alignment, but our cars don't (unless you have an IRS). That shop saying they only do 4 wheel is just scamming some easy money out of you. Almost all alignment machines have the option to do a 2 wheel instead
