Sorry for multiple threads in 2 days guys........I just want to make sure those who might have insight, that already viewed the other one, sees this......
Here is the printout of my alignment done right after the car was lowered (same day)........I have no idea what it says.
Should they have compared my specs to the SRT specs since the car was lowered, instead of the standard RT specs they used?
Anyone know what this stuff means, how far off am I and how crucial is it for me to get camber kits or am I ok?

the issue with comparing it to an SRT is that the knuckles on the SRT change the geometry. an RWD RT is fine.
0.05* toe in the front is fine, i would say any negative camber less than -0.7* will be fine as well. not quite spec, but it will survive. just ensure that the cross camber is ok.
Well I just found out that what I posted is technically not the alignment prinout, looks like they just printed the alignment spec page out of a book and wrote those numbers to the left of it in pen....
I might have to go to a different alignment shop
i noticed that. to be honest. my camber is still out of whack, -1.2* in front, -1.5 in the rear. no unusual wear in 35,000km. i wouldnt recommend it for everyone though.

I wouldn't worry about the camber kits. It's not going to be something that will ruin your tires right away.
I have no abnormal tire wear on my '05 Magnum R/T and I have a 2" drop without the camber kits. I've been running this set up over a year and a half with the same set of tires......NO PROBLEMS.

I just went through all this recently on my 05 300C. She is lowered with Eibach 1.7" drop and 275/40-20 Vred's. I put Hotchkis sways front and back then took the car to the Dealership where they have a new alignment system with computer printouts in color. Took the specs and printout and bought the SPC front upper control arms -+ 2 degrees of caster and camber adjustment and the rear camber bushings. I basically eyeballed the front camber and with the printout I adjusted the caster to within specs using the settings card that came with the control arms. The rears were easy enough to install, then took the car back to a dealership and between the tech and myself we brought the car in as close as the new kits would allow. Key is having a printout of your current alignment then work off of that and to have all the suspension mods completed before the final alignment.

Careful Fireman, you may be like me soon with the inside 1-2" worn to threads withat setup(30k mi). I didn't notice 'til I put on new wheels, so I had the bushings installed, now as you know, I'm rubbing.
To start with, thanks for your concern. I inspect and rotate my tires every 5,000 miles. I've been running this set up for over 22,000 miles with no issues.
Here's a rear tire with over 22,000 miles. Note the wear.......looks pretty even wouldn't you say?
Sounds like you had more than just camber problems there.
