I have a set of Steeda's coming in today and have been in direct contact w/ their team here in Pompano Beach, FL. According to them there are no alignment issues. I'm hoping they can have them installed this week or sometime early next week due to the holiday weekend. I'll keep you guys posted once installed.
Thanks.

That was my next project so I would like to know the outcome.

Anyone looked getting this to fix the rear camber?

McBay Performance Rear Cam Bolt Alignment Kit

I just ordered these and they should be here tomorrow, I won't install them until my next oil change is due. The local Ford dealer is very unorganized and annoying so I will try to limit my interactions with them. But after installling my H&R springs the rear camber is at about -2.2deg. So I'll install them and have them re-align it then, I don't think 5k miles is enough to ruin my tires with those numbers.
As a side note, I just ordered the camber kit from McBay on Thurday night, they were shipped Friday morning and should be here Monday, pretty impressive!

You don’t need camber bolts. They need to align it from the right spot. The upper control arm at the frame….that spot is slotted. It will align correctly if your shop knows WTF they’re doing.

It took them 2 days for an oil change, alignment, and program the IPMB for the recall...I don't think anyone at that dealer knows WTF they're doing lol!! I was planning on marking the bolts with a scribe first and if I get movement I'll take a photo to show them and make the fix it for free. Thanks for the tip!
