I posted many times that its your Toe settings and not camber.

Toe in your front 1/16th of an inch, and the rear 1/16th of an inch.

If you have an aggressive drop (2+ inches) Toe IN the front 1/8th of an inch.

doing an alignment is easy but can be done wrong. Anyone can just drive a car on the alignment rack and "align" it. Most techs wont bother with puttin in the ride height for the difference compared to stock. If they do that, then truthfully they just have to follow about 2 colors on the screen. If they are not doing computer alignment then i dont know what to say.

im worried about your car being too low...we can do the alignment..because we sell and install ebach lowering springs which are going on my car...im worried about the body kit you have in the front..maybe we have some planks of wood in the back to help you get up..i just know we've had a problem in the past getting cars off the rack..just something to think about before you go in..

I have the same problem too. I had it with one set of stockies and now on my set with the rims. Jacen at LMW said they do a pretty good job. Whether you believe him or not, their loyalty to customers assures me they will do a good job. I'm gonna go there when I get my new set of tires soon. I'll let you know if you want, but I'm not sure when I'll get it done sometime next week.
