Swift Spring with camber kit on 2015 Q40 AWD

My Q40 only has 3300 miles and I am close to replacing the stock spring to Swift. I am keeping the stock shocks, but my concern is , which cheap camber kit should I get? Since I heard that most members here never bought a camber kit when they replaced their spring to Swift .

Do I get front camber kit or rear? I am on a budget and I might only afford to get either front camber kit or rear camber kit. Which one is basically off alignment after the spring replacement and camber alignment ? The front or rear?

Thanks!

If you will be installing the parts I'd wait till after you get an alignment to see if you're out of spec. Either you'll be good or need the rear kit most likely. Guys have had luck with just buying the toe bolts.

Yeah, Jumpman gives good advice, usually the front will be just a bit out of spec but since the toe is fully adjustable you can get that in spec, and run a bit heavier camber and get decent front tire wear. The rear will usually be around -2 w/ the toe also out. Getting a rear 4 bolt kit (2 bolts for the toe and 2 camber bolts (not the arms) runs about $50 if you DIY the install. You need a dremel tool and some small cutoff wafers to elongate the slots for the bolts to slide further.
Here's the kit (you need two kits) and the install info

fwiw, I didn't need a camber kit when I installed swifts. rear camber was fine, front is a little out of spec but nothing to worry about, getting even tire wear. install them, get an alignment done a few days later to see if you need the camber kit.

So I got the rear camber arms and one set of bolts also, do I not need another set of bolts since I have the arms? Also got the front camber kit too.

No, you're good, the rear arms give you more camber range than the camber bolts, and your included toe bolts complete the set.

Great! Thanks! I think I'm going to order sways too, so I'll have my fortune coils, sways, gt spec rear lower tie bar, Cusco strut bar, and full camber kits and a gtspec m brace, hopefully my car is going to handle well after all that!
