lowering/ tire wear question

ok well the situation is that i am about to purchase the eibach lowering springs but i am not planning to buy the rear adjustable arms to do proper aligment in the rear..... so my question is if i install the eibach springs, will i get extreme tire wear in the rear, even after trying to align it the best possible without the rear adjustable arms ??because if that the case then i might as well just leave it stock height right???

^^No, it won't be that bad. I have eibach springs on my GT and it's not super bad once it's been "aligned." It's not perfect in spec of course but the wear isn't excessive.

Re: lowering/ tire wear question

how much do the adjustable arms cost?

i mean, if theyre cheaper than a pair of tires, it might be worth it...

Re: lowering/ tire wear question

I have Intrax springs, which drop a bit lower than the eibachs. I don't have the adj. control arms, but I adjusted the rear camber in as close as possible (about a half a degree out of spec). Haven't noticed any abnormal wear yet.

NA's with only springs usually dont need the control arms.
