I was looking and found some Bav Auto springs for sale. The Seller mentioned that the "Extreme camber" on lowering the rear led to premature tire wear. Do all springs do this? Is there a Fix? What would be recommended Wheel/Tire setup with these springs? They lower the car about1.2" in the front and 1" in the rear. Anybody with these springs?

not recommended you do it your self the old stick and string wont work for this case to adjust the camber correctly have it installed and alighned in a proper certified shop.. your suspension aint somethin to play with unless you know what your doing.
