On my 05 w/ cobb springs, I ended up with -0.9 in the rear and around -1.0 in the fronts after the install. I guess it depends on what kind of handling you want. I currently have camber bolts in the front and set at -1.7. The rear is not adjustable.

You are going to end up with a little more negative camber but that is a good thing. 05 and 06 can't get enough negative camber from the factory. You will have to get your car lined up anyway after the spring install because the toe is going to change with the camber. I'm not sure how much positive camber you would be able to get back out but I'm pretty sure you could get it back into stock spec.

I'm running JDM pinks and I have -1.5 in the front and about 1.2 in the rear. I would like to see 2.5 in the front though but -1.5 is all I could get.
