the upper control arms in the djm kit are there to correct the camber that was adjusted from the ball joint flip. it puts everythin back to stock geometry, just 3" lower.
the whole kit 3/4 and a set of new Toxic shocks is $315 +s/h from Godfather's.

Always get an alignment after lowering or lifting. I DO NOT have the DJM kit and my alignment is not too bad. I have a little negative camber, but no toe in/out.

The longer upper control arm helps to push the top of the wheel out which helps prevent negative camber. With this kit, you could go as low as me and have a better alignment since I don't have the kit.

did you get an alignment? I've had my tires over 2 yrs and about 40k on them. Time to replace them now though.

I had several alignments..... They are kinda useless with fast bags. I hardly ever drive at the same height. I set the correct camber at about what I drive it at. I just shred throught them though. I had a nice set of Kuhmos like at the end of September, by the time truckn nationals got here they were almost at the belts. The rest of the tire is fine though

remember this- djm uppers are not adjustable there just longer then the stock ones to correct the camber.

i had a 82 regal with ten switch's and when i had the front juiced, it would look nasty too much butterfly. then i reinforced and extended the a arms. that fixed the problem no more butterfly.

yeah if they got a alignment rack they can do it. make sure you get it aligned with the rims and tire you roll with. dont get it with stocks then a week later buy some new wheels and tires thinking you will retain a perfect alignment. cause you wont.......

Does it really make a difference where you get an alignment? I would hate to take it somewhere and come back with some nicks and scratches on my rims! Any recommendations? I used to go to Hawthorne in San Marcos but last time they didn't do that good of a job.

So what should i do if i want to go lower, but not have alot of negative camber. Do they even make longer control arms? I'm thinking about 1-2 more inches in the front and maybe 2-3 inches in the rear. For a total of 4-5 drop or a 5-6 drop.
