Do I need Camber Kit?

I just ordered a set of KW Street Comfort Coilovers. If I'm going to have a conservative drop, will my wheels toe in? I just want to save on labor if its necessary.

You will have to get an alignment but with a conservative drop they will be able to adjust the toe as needed.

You should not need a camber kit.

Camber kit is needed if you wanna run some crazy wide wheels with aggressive offsets and you still rub after fender rolling and some fender cutting/pulling....!!!!

You don't need camber plates but added negative camber sure does improve handling! I had GC camber plates installed at the same time as my KW's. If you're relatively close to Mtn. View, I'd have Sonic MS install the susp. Don't get an alignment right away; wait at least 500 miles since the susp will settle a lot during that time.

Thanks guys, I appreciate all the help.

Yeah, I'm not too far from Mtn. View but I ordered my KW's from ASP in Daly City. I choose them because they're only walking distance from my house.
