I'm going to get an Eibach prokit. I know that i need a camber kit to ensure that i don't have to much negative camber on my back tires so they wear evenly. This site seems the have the lowest price for the kit :

My question: I have a 2007 with a 2.3 liter manual transmission. Their kits say this:
Alignment Kit

Fits: 2005 to 2005 Mazda 3 SP23 L4 2.3 MFI

Notes: Pro-Alignment Camber Kit; Rear +/-6.0; 5.67420K $220.65 $155.29

Now none of these kits say they are for an 07, i know that mazda slightly redesigned the suspension for the 07 models, but i'm not sure how much they changed. Will my car use the same camber kit as the older models? Also it says the top one is for a 2005 only, and the others say 2004 to 2005 based on engine size, why do none of them say 06? Basically all i want to know is exactly what kit do i need, and where is the cheapest place to get it.

Actually, for a lot of people, the prokit doesn't drop the car enough so that you REALLY need a rear camber kit.

I say, get the drop done first, and after the springs settle a month, get your alignment done. If they say you need camber correction for the rear, then invest the $130 for the camber kit and have it installed.

I don't know for sure. I'd try and find a part number for a 2007 camber link and see if it's the same as the 06/05.

You dont need the kit. Its a very slight drop just to make the car look good with no fender gap. Ive had my pro kit on for over a year and tire wear is fine. Just rotate them every 3k and you will be fine.
