ground control makes a camber kit. how are you lowering it? springs and shocks or coil overs? ive got GC lowering 2.5f/2.25 r with bilstein sports shocks. camber 'looks" to be bad, but not really affecting tires. i am on 195/65/r14's though.

Get the camber plates if you want to adjust it yourself, otherwise I believe it can be done by any shop that does alignments.

if you buy bilstein struts, can you just get the coilover spring later on to make it a coilover>?

so if the wheels pitch in I guess I have to live with it?. I figured that a 60mm drop will pitch in the wheels causing uneven tire wear

Just hit up a few auto-x's, that'll even out your tire wear.
