99' CRV front camber adjustment needed?

Hi. I own a 99' crv 4wd automatic. I just bought Detroit Axle struts all around, only issue I noticed ( at least for me) was that the front sits slightly lower than the rear, the rear got elevated by the way, so I plan to level it out with 1/4 strut spacers I found on Ebay specifically for my car. I've read that 2' lifts MIGHT require camber adjustment to have tire sit straight on the ground, question is would I need it for such a minimal adjustment? I wouldn't want to install them and have to notice my front tires look crooked to the rears.

Dude simmer down.

You should have it aligned because you put struts in. The alignment is not going to be right not matter where you bought them/what brand unless you bought ones direct from Honda. That said, if it drive straight you can avoid an alignment of/until tires start to wear unevenly.

That said I would not raise the front. CRV rear will settle out after a bit, your so used to the rear sagging now it looks too high. It's back to sitting exactly where it should.

Actually I did align it right after that, I didn't mention it before. the steering wheel was slightly off so that's the next thing I did. So with that said, would such a small spacer effect camber?
