Getting 17" wheels sometime this year... just a question about camber kits. Will it be 100% necessary? and if so, why are they required? and last but not least, how much are they? (for an ED). *and any other information I might need to know*
Changing the ride height?
If not, you shouldn't need them.
Camber kit is basically a longer set of bolts for the upper control arm on the front. Ford didn't make the factory ones long enough and as the adjustment on them changes due to wear and diferent suspension setups (i.e. lowering) you need to replace them so as to be able to make the correct adjustment.
I find that many suspension shops will tell you to fit one as a matter of course, about 70% of the time IMO it's not really necessary.
As to price, I dunno I make my own last time :)

Yes I agree with the above statements. Not necessary unless you are lowering the car. But if you decide on fitting them, I got mine for $150 + fitting. my camber/castor kit is a K-mac brand too. Not that its supposed to mean anything.
