You will have too much negative camber in the rear even without the springmount mod. It's not too bad with just springs but you will want to get it corrected when you start to see that camber wear.

I know every car is different, but I personally didn't have to purchase a rear camber kit. Well I did purchase it, but sold it because I ended up not needing one. If anything, my front tires wear faster than my rears.

I went with the rear SPC camber kit and had it all installed at the same time. I can't really say yes or no because I won't have alignment specs after the pro-kit install without the rear camber kit.

2007 Touring - Tein S-Tech

I love the way it sits now .. not too low and should be able to get the alignment back in spec .. rides a little smoother on regular bumps yet is firmer around corners / doesn't drop or raise as much braking and accelerating


the sun threw a shadow on the wheels .. but you can make out where the top of the wheel is .. just follow the edge around .. I'll get a better pic when I wash it this week (car is dirty and just installed the springs last night)

i think you can go just a tad lower and still be in alignment spec...long as you have a rear camber kit.

Alrighty, here's my set up:

Eibach Pro-Kit Springs
Tokico D-Spec Shocks
SPC Rear Camber/Toe Kit
Enkei RPF1 - Fr: 19x9 +18 w/245/35/19, Rr: 19x10 +22 w/275/35/19

Stock suspension to give an idea of where my Z started at:


Measurements (wheel center-ish to fender):
Passenger Front - 16-7/8"
Passenger Rear - 18"
Driver Front - 16-5/8"
Driver Rear - 17-3/4"

After (pics outside of garage are on uneven ground):






Measurement (wheel center-ish to fender):
Passenger Front - 16-1/4" (5/8" drop)
Passenger Rear - 16-7/8" (1-1/8" drop)
Driver Front - 16" (5/8" drop)
Driver Rear - 16-5/8" (1-1/8" drop)
Decently consistent drops front and rear. Will be measuring about 1x per week over the next two months to observe "settling", if any.
I suspect the height differences between driver vs. passenger sides might be due to the manufacturing tolerances of the sheet metal.


Alignment Specs:
Left Front..........................Right Front
-1.43..........Camber.........-1.66
7.76...........Caster............7.51
0.04.............Toe..............0.03

Left Rear..........................Right Rear
-1.60..........Camber.........-1.62
0.10...........Caster............0.10

Not as aggressive nor as low as some on these forums, but my Z is my DD and I needed it to be street friendly.

Just a special thanks to Steve and Nima at Corner3 Garage for their excellent work installing and helpful advising on selecting my set up.

I said about wheel center-ish. I measured from the edge of the bowl that all the lug nuts go into on the rims because that diameter is not going to change before/after the drop.
