im all for this. keep track of what kit you bought and anything you ran into. I want to get rid of the 4x4 look myself, but was leaning toward shock/spring setup. However, i wouldnt rule out the air bags either.
Easy to get around the rear camber issue. of course you wont be able to get rid of all of it. however, you can size the bags right to where full height is acceptable to drive on while still being lower than stock.
Personally, if i were to bag the car and keep stock 14 inch tires-- chewing through a pair of tires a summer would be least of my concerns. Imo, the cost of two tires is relatively cheap compared to the joy of driving the car.
The camber itself doesn't scare me either. lets be realistic, if you are running a car lowered like that, you are going low and slow and not exactly looking to shred corners. Hell, i see worse camber on fwd hondas that are improperly lowered.
