possible suspension problems

so i went to the shop down the street from my house to see how much it would cost to install new struts and springs and i got to talking for the guy a while about cars cause he really liked the lude. then he said that getting a two inch drop on my car with h&r and kyb agx that it would probably give me problems unless i replaced the camber kit with an aftermarket kit and the strut mounts, and control arms is this true???

**** him.
Go somewhere else.
All you need is an alignment.

I have perfect tire wear on that setup, and no camber kit. Several other people have the same testimony.

Neck is dropped almost 3 inches and no camber kit, no uneven tirewear, but that's kind of uncommon. He just has a good alignment. I forget what setup he has though.
