Default Camber and coilovers problems??

So I been really stressing over this problem. my BC coilovers came home 2 weeks ago and I haven't decided to put it on yet cause I'm still shopping for 19' wheels. I was told that I will still need to get camber just in case anything happen. Another person told me that my BC coilovers have camber built it. Can someone tell me what should I do?? I'm not trying to go way to low and I'm also going to get my fenders rolled. So what do you guys prefer and what wheel size should I get.

What you were told was bull****. I am running BC coils as low as the car can go, sometimes spinning a rear wheel just to get up a driveway. To make a long story short, I was able to get my alignment done within specs considering how low I am. I live near you. Take your GS to Vex Motorsports. I wasn't expecting miracles but they made it work. It's been 15,000 since the alignment and my tires are not showing any signs of uneven wear.

BC's do not have the camber adjustments built into them. You have to get upper control arms with camber adjustments if you are concerned about that.

The lower you go, the more negative the camber gets so it really depends on your final ride height and if you need aftermarket camber arms to be within oem spec and saving your tires.

camber isn't something you buy
if you look at the car from the rear
/---\ negative camber
\---/ positive camber

What's your offsets? That plays a big part so that info is needed. From what I've heard BC's are good. If you dont plan on going too low, then you might be able to be within factory specs. Sometimes the best way is to just do it and learn.
