You shouldn't have to...

the best way to find out for sure is contact UUC directly.

Good luck.

Lowering a car with McPherson suspension will induce negative camber. Consider this a nice bonus effect to lowering the car b/c it will help the tires bite better during corners. If you didn't have negative camber then the body roll of the car would make only the outside edge of the tires contact the ground.

Negative camber is ok.............. but sucks for a daily driver as you get un-even wear on your expensive tires. For a daily driver, try to ge back as close as possible to factory specs on the camber.

Yap, I should add that for a daily driver I recommend no more than 1 degree of negative camber. If you track your car or auto-x often then 2 or even 3 degrees of negative camber would be beneficial.
