I'm currently about to begin saving for the Pro-Kit and Koni Sports for my 3 and i was wonding some things about the suspension set up...

Will a camber kit be necessary for that lil of a drop?

Wut are other components I should conider purchasing that are necessities (i.e. rear sway bar etc)

any insight would be appreciated

I have the pro kit. My alignment was still in spec after the drop. You shouldn't need anything more. Unless you want it.

LOL!! Best set up cuz u love yours...that's awesome

I'm pretty pumped to get mine, but also upset that I have to wait to save up the $$$ for it

Also, my car is fairly new....I'm assuming doing this will void my warranty....?

It will void the warranty on your struts and springs. It won't affect the warranty on anything not directly being impacted by your changes.

In order to deny you warranty coverage, they have to be able to prove that what went wrong did so because of your changes.

That is EXCELLENT! Thanx a lot for that info. I was hoping that's wut the situation would be. It only seems logical

Anyone have any advice on whether it's a good idea to swap back to stock for the winter months (despite our lack of one this year so far lol) ?

I'll tell you in a few months.

And also.....You won't lose any warranty since you're swaping them out and you're not modifying them.

If you put the stockers back on and foudn something wrong in a month or so, you can still get warranty. Thats what i think.

I've been riding on my Stechs for two winters now and they are the lowest set up you can go as far as springs go

I've also heard somewhere that lowering your car puts added pressure on ball joints and can lead to early replacement.* Fact or fiction?

errrrrr.... Springs and shocks are cup kits. Unless you're stating that you want to buy them in a whole set that comes together then no.
