Had my alignment done today at Best Tire in Great Neck, NY. They utilize a state of the art Hunter laser alignment rack. What follows is my final specs and the factory specs as well

17x7 CL-S Wheels
Dunlop SP Sport 4000 215/50-VR17
Eibach Sportlines
Factory Dampers

Front Left
Camber: -0.4 degrees (Factory Spec: -1.0 to 1.0 degrees)
Caster: 3.0 degrees (Factory Spec: 1.8 to 3.8 degrees)
Toe: 0.02 degrees (Factory Spec: -0.08 to 0.08 degrees)

Front Right
Camber: -1.1 degrees
Caster: 2.4 degrees
Toe: 0.01 degrees

Front Total Toe: 0.03 degrees (Factory Spec: -0.16 to 0.16 degrees)

Rear Left
Camber: -1.6 degrees (Factory Spec: -1.0 to 0.0 degrees)
Toe: 0.08 (Factory Spec: 0.00 - 0.16 degrees)

Rear Right
Camber: -2.3 degrees
Toe: 0.09 degrees

Rear Total Toe: 0.21 degrees (Factory Spec: 0.00 to 0.32 degrees)

So as you can see, no camber kit is needed for the front wheels, only frequent alignment is necessary, esp since i hit potholes from time to time. However my rear camber is pretty bad, probably necessitating a camber kit (Ingalls part#3872) Although the rear tires are NOT subjected to very much load, peace of mind is worth $200

the alignment guy suggested i get a camber kit, wanted to charge me $122 for each, $244 for two, plus $100 install. for a total of $344 for the rear oh yea add the $61 for 4 wheel alignment..so he wanted $400 for everything. i didnt do it.
