A camber kit is for when you lower your car too much and the wheel is bending into the wheel well. The camber kit adjusts this problem so you don't have to buy new tires every 5000 miles. How much did you lower it? Is you have this problem then spend your money on a camber kit and have it professionaly adjusted. What is everything you have done to it?

Spend = approx. 200$

For the 200$ you spend now it will save you THOUSANDS in tires in the future. The most adjustment I have seen on a camber kit is about 3 degrees. Your car has to be really low to be off by more than that. So most likely you won't have to raise it up.

No the car will not be raised at all, the camber kit just adjusts the inward and outwardness of the wheel. You should expect to spend between $150 and $220.

Yes as long as the shop is competent to imports they should be able to set it up for you.

As for pictures

Not to be an ***, but I get the feeling that you've done absolutely none of the work on your car yourself, right? Where the fun in that.
