I have a completely stock '05 Accent 1.6L. If I put new springs on (was thinking about the Eibach Pro-Kit Springs) will I need to do anything else to avoid uneven wear on my tires?

I haven't delt with the 05's yet but at most maybe some camber bolts.
When I lowered my 02 accent It only had 1.5 degreas negative camber meaning that; The inside tread wore first but not by a whole lot. I bought camber adjusting bolts and now it's o degreas camber. The difference in handling from 1.5- camber to an even 0 camber is miniscuel.:)
also "whiteline" might make swaybars for your car.

00-05 suspension is the same.

03-05 body is the same.

Some places just don't really update as much as they should.

Camber bolts may be necessary depending on what your priorities are.

you will more than likely need camber bolts to dial back negative camber after you lower the car.

after you install your springs and camber bolts take it to a shop that can perform a good alignment for you because you will need your camber and toe adjusted back to stock specs if you want your tires to last.

If you plan on autocrossing or tracking the car negative camber will help you, just make sure you get your toe set as well. Both will increase your tire wear, toe out will kill your tires quicker than camber will but both will cause the same outcome. I'm almost down to the belts on 2 of my tires from camber wear with maybe 9,000 miles on the tires. I also have a lot more camber than most people.

Just planning on having a daily driver with a lower and stiffer ride than stock. So, put on the springs, camber bolts, then take it to a shop and have 'em adjust the camber and toe back to the point where my tires will wear evenly? That's great, but what are camber bolts? :confused:

Talking about camber bolts here. Sorry to bring back a old topic. I've seen OBX Camber Botls on eBay does it's work great ? Did you suggest me another brand ? And yes I'm a mecanic (and alignment specialist). Did you place a camber bolts on the bottom hole and leave the stock one in the upper ?...

If someone can give me a picture of what a strut look like with a camber bolt it will help !
