Hi, I have a 2004 sportpac with air suspension in the rear. I would also like to lower it and am interested in the H&R kit. I recently had the alignment done and spoke to the guys about the amount of positive camber in the rear as it was chewing out the inside edge of the rear tires. They told me that the factory setting was +2 deg and the best they could wind it in to was +1 deg. The effect of lowering it will slightly increase the positive camber again but that's the price to pay for ' the look '. The best thing to do is have correct tire pressure and buy tires that can be turned on the rim. As I said, mine is the sport pack so wether this is the same for the standard suspension I don't know.
