    Found amazing deals on Eibach Pro Kit (-1.8”) and Koni STR.T struts. I have no idea how much this will ruin my tires. I highway commute and occasionally drive really hard, including on the on ramps. Do I need camber kits? Willing to put in spring spacers to reduce the drop if I can avoid costly parts. Don’t have the budget. Open to any suggestions.

    Plan on getting an alignment after you install everything. Having toe set correctly will help minimize tire wear. The camber in the rear can be corrected easily with some spacers and longer bolts. The front is not so easy so most people just leave it alone if it's not bad.

    Its not neg camber you want to get it back, its positive camber and rear can be done with washers and longer bolts, fronts can use ball joints as an easy option off the shelf or inner mountings, they have been known to slip though,

    Can also buy megan arms aswel but again known to slip with the 6 bolts on top but they the off the shelf options available,

    The rear essentric mounts work well so perhaps look into them

    For the rear, does this mean longer bolts and spacers at the top inside of the tire? Where?
    In the front, has anyone tried slotting the lower strut mount holes to adjust camber?

    Yes, the upper control arm needs to be pushed put some, the washers would go behind the mounting brackets. Many people have done with and kits are even available. Search some and you will find them.

    The front struts have no impact on camber. It's a double wishbone setup

    I guess that is a difference. My front end is not a double wishbone. I have a strut going to the top of the knuckle. Lateral arm and a semi-trailing arm on the bottom, each with a ball joint.

    I am not familiar with the avenger front suspension, but I know the neon uses a MacPherson strut type suspension, you may want to check with those guys on how to adjust front camber.

    The avenger is basically the coupe version and the eclipse/talon is the hatchback version. Besides the console, the hood, fenders, front bumper and headlights, they are exactly the same from the rear of the doors forward.

    the avenger has the exact same suspension setup as the eclipse. Its considered a multi-link suspension.

    I split off the suspension section of the tech manual if anyone wants to look it over.

    Apologies. I was thinking about the wrong car. The dustyboner diagram is correct. Same as 2g Eclipse. What are manufacturers sites of adjustable front end parts? ( upper control arms, adjustable ball joints, etc)
