Anyone have camber issues with eibachs and 17s?

I just put on a set of 17x7 wheels on 225/55/17 tires and I would really like to drop the car. I was looking at a set of eibachs. I was just wondering if anyone has had camber issues with a drop and 17s? I only ask because it seems like all of my friends are having issues with their camber, but none of them have birds, they all have eclipses and other riceburner crap. Thanks for the help!

On the right rear of my SC after the Eibach instllation, we had to slot the upper control arm to knuckle hole a bit to move the knuckle back out, so that the camer setting wasn't too negative. I'm talking roughly half a degree of camber, not a huge amount.


cheers,

Thats why you need a 4 wheel alignment after your lowered suspension settles a little. What you do to the adjustment on one wheel may affect all the other wheels alignment as well.
