Hey guys Just wondering:

Im about to get the mechanic to install my Konis and H&R's so do you think I need a camber kit?

and also whats the deal with bumpstops what the heck are those?, because someone said he cut them in half and the ride was smoother? can someone explain?

yes you need a chamber kit. Or i mean its not a MUST have because im lowered a little over 2in and dont have them yet but i would recomend it if you have money. You need to cut the bumpstops in half. If you dont they will not leave the shock any traveling room.

I would recommend you have the camber kit installed, but only after a week or so of driving after your springs/struts are installed. The reason I say this? The springs will settle in about a week, sometimes more. Some will argue this and say that they settle in a few hours, but I've noticed mine have settled since installing my koni/eibachs.

When I first had them installed, the front was about 2 1/2 finger gaps, and now (1 month later) I can get about 1 1/2 fingers in there, so there will be some settling taking place. The rears I can't tell how much they have settled although they do appear to be lower because when I first put them on, the rears tucked and I couldn't get a finger in there anyway.

I have my konis at factory stiffness, lowest perch all the way around and eibachs. Only my front bumpstops are cut and I would recommend that you have all of your bumpstops cut when you get the job done.
