    it depends, if you "slam" your rex then yes, you will need a camber kit or tires ever 1000 miles. IF you only drop it 1-2 inches, you will probally not need one. Also, droping a car more than 2 inches does nothing for handling and is unnessiacary (sp?)

    i hate camber kit threads.

    i was dropped 3 1/2 inches.
    my tires with a 140 treadwear lasted me a full season up front, and the backs had another season on them easily. no camber kit.

    basically, its up to you. if you like getting new tires once a year, don't bother.
    otherwise get one if you drop over 2.5
