    For a 2" drop, you really on't need a camber kit, I wouldn't waste the money. Once you drop it, take it to an alignment shop, and make sure it's all good, especialy the toe (caster) that is what will wear down tires, and cause bad steering.

    As far as shocks go, well there's a ton of choices. Those two are good, there are also Bilstein, Tokico, Tein, etc..I would look into something adjustable, so you can better match the ride from you springs, though getting a matched kit is always best.

    I always tell people, if you just want to lower your car, just get coilovers. They are just as good as aftermarket springs, but they are adjustable springs. How can you go wrong?

    If its not low enough, lower it some more. If its too low, raise it. Now tell me what regular drop springs can do that? :huh:

    Don't know about shocks, never had to buy them. :shrug:
