So, took the car to the shop today and got new Steering Rack bushing installed (Offset due to the lowering) and a front end alignment. The shop called me sayin that the alignment was off due to the lowering, but they could get it closer to perfect with "Camber Bolts" which were $23 each. I told them go for it.

The shop then told me that the alignment was now perfect on the front. I can even notice the tires are straight insted of showing a toe at the bottom. My questions is; Does it remove my need for Caster Camber Plates?

My understanding is that the plates help with getting the tires aligned after a lowering job. However, these Camber Bolts they added made the alignment perfect... so is there any need for them now?

No essentially the camber bolts did the same thing. The caster/camber kits have more adj.

Well good deal then. The Bolts were $46... alot cheaper than plates. The front tires look better now also. They are straight instead of to bottom poking out.

Nope, no print out. Never gotten a print out when I got an alignment acually.
