Eibach Pro-Alignment Kit

13601 28
I have a 2012 SRT YJ, with Mopar lowering springs and front/rear strut braces. I have 21100 total miles and with that about 10K miles clocked with the lowering springs in service. My car is a DD. And I also run the Goodyear F1's, staggered. Front tires, ok...Rear tires...not so ok. The rears have worn quite a bit on the outside...inside, not so bad given the mileage and duty. The outside tread is riding on the wear indicators. Inside tread, not so much, probably 2 or 3/32's left on the in-board sides. I'll post up some pics in a bit showing the rear tire wear patterns.

But, it seems I need a smidge of negative camber to even out the rear tire wear patterns. So, I ordered a set of Eibach rear camber bushings for the rear control arms, part number 5.66050K.

Anybody else in CT world install these bushes? How do they hold up, durability wise, daily driver duty cycle? Any issues at all with these, besides once they are pressed into the control arms, rear camber adjustability is nada....

Post 15 includes Mopar part numbers. Since I posted this, I switched to Conti DWS tires. They, so far, wear a lot less than the F1's. I still have the right side Chrysler camber adjustment bolts installed. Rear camber = no. I have one in case I ever need it... My car is also lowered with the Mopar springs. Knock on wood, no alignment, tracking or suspension issues here....

I plan to have Mopar Stage 1's along with Eibach pro dampers and front/rear sway bars installed in the next week or two, with alignment to follow later.
Should I have them go ahead and put the 5.66050k (rear camber bushings) and the 5.66045k (front camber arms) at the same time as the suspension upgrades?
The front alignment kit is expensive and my plan was to wait to buy them and see if I need them. But this thread has me worried....

The only thing I worry about is one of those bars bending at the adjustment point. I had a set of camber arms similar to those on my Speed3, and I bent them while running The Dragon. Don't want to have to worry about that ever again.
And I'm sure that since they're adjustable, they'll work with lowered vehicles

I've been going through all of this over the last couple of weeks. I don't understand how the OP has outside tire wear after lowering his car. When lowering these cars, they gain negative camber. That has to be from toe alignment.

I put Eibach Pro springs on my car when it was brand new, and had it aligned. The springs have definitely settled since then, because I can't get a jack under my car as easily as I was able to. It has 25,000 miles now and the tires still looked new, but the insides were worn to the cores. I bought new tires yesterday, and this is what I'm going with to fix my alignment issues for good.
