You will need either camber plates or you can get the adjustable strut mounts from Steeda. The Steeda option will set you back about $300.

Default doing it yourself

It took me around 1 1/2 hrs to complete the job from breaking out the tools to wiping them down..

An issue I had was not being able to remove the drivers side spring without taking a crow bar to pry it over the seat rubber, minor.

I only really notice a stiffer ride is when I go over small bumps. It's very managable.

It's the right thing to do...the look is awesome...!!!

I'm refering to only changing out the rears of coarce...

You do not need camber plates. I have the FRPP springs (re-badged Eibachs) and my camber is at -1 degree with the stock upper strut mounts. Not much camber at all.

The need for camber correction depends on where your individual car's cambers end up, and what an appropriate camber value for your individual driving might be.

The preferred -0.75 setting may be correct for some folks, maybe even most. But it won't be far enough negative for the hardcore-cornering few and may be too much negative for the dedicated drag-racer or somebody whose car lives virtually all of its life on Interstate highways. My point here is that once you find reason to correct your camber, you might as well correct it to better suit your specific driving.

I don't do any kind of racing at the moment. Right now its just my daily driver that I use to and from work and getting around.

I guess the main thing that i was woried about is that I am going to be buying 20inch wheels and don't want to have to buy new front tires every 2 years.

You can also use camber bolts - less expensive than plates. Also, don't forget to get the front end aligned after the spring install.

Can anyone tell me about the roush extreme lowering springs.
http://store.roushperformance.com/detail.aspx?ID=1007

How they ride, and any pics if you have them.

They are recommended to be used with stock shocks and struts which is great because i am on a budget, but would there be a particular reason for this? Because of that i am guessing that they wont hurt the lifespan of my stock shock/struts? Thanks guys
