You may need the camber kit if you want to tuck the 20" wheels under the fender.

i'd get the rears if your going to have no wheel gap just to be safe. its a good investment and it'll save tire life.

Depends on how low you're dropping... I have Tien Basics on 20x8.5 with 225/35 tires. I'm down to maybe a half finger gap in front & JUST tuckin' in the rear. I can visually SEE where my camber is off in the rear so I know I need a rear camber kit....

What offset are you running? I have a 40 offset & I can tell you right now you won't be able to slam to the ground without rubbing. My inner fender well has been completely rubbed away from the tire on the drivers side. It's to the front of the tire, not above it. The passenger side is almost untouched though for some reason... It doesn't rub all the time but on moderate dips & inclines it does.... I know that I'ma have to raise up some more b/c I'm barely tuckin in the rear now, but when my camber is corrected & my tires are in line vertically I will probably rub really bad in the rear....

my off set is 45. if I stan in the trunk and jump up and down. the wheels dont touch the fenders. Im 6'6'' 300lbs. one day I had over 300lbs bags of dirt for my yard l in my trunk. the wheels were tuck with no rub at all, also in turns and big bumps. I know I will need the camber in the back, woundering about the front

Some cars need it and some cars don't.... I have 20x8.5 offset 40 with tein basics and my front alignment couldn't be better... the rears are a must... Once Thien installed my basics, you could tell the rears were waaaay off... but the fronts were fine...we waited for it to settle in to see if it would throw it off, but didn't do anything, so saves me $160...

Yeah, i think most times you only need the front with an EXTREME drop. you should be FINE with a 45 offset with only the rears...
