Icon5 camber kit?

im in the process of installing new upper ball joints and i was going to install the cam kit at the same time... is there anything special involved in this install or do i just put it in and then have the truck aligned?

Just put them in and take it to get aligned.

Hell when I dropped the front of my truck from stock to 5.5 inches which included all new upper and lower arms and coils I installed a 2 degree camber kit in so they wouldnt rape me with one of theirs they said nothing and aligned it.

ok... i bought the kit from a napa service place across the street from my office where im gonna take it to get aligned... they gave me the shop rate of $15 for both kits and its $59 to align after i finish with the ball joint install sometime in the next few days... the sooner the better since the benz doesn't have a/c and its 9000 degrees here in mississippi

Yeah it was around 30 something after tax for the camber kit on both sides for my truck and I bought them from napa to. What degree did you go with? And is napa doing the alignment?

Just curious, how much does it usually cost to buy a camber kit and have it installed? When the dealership put one on my truck the invoice showed about $400. I didn't pay a dime for it, but I'm just curious how much it really costs to install.
