Parts for Alignment on a Lowered S14

Hey guys,
I'm eventually (when I get the money) going to install coilovers with adjustable camber plates on my 95 s14 and was just wondering what other parts are necessary to align it to factory specs. I will probably autox or road race sometime in the distant future but for now I just want to get maximum life out of my tires for street use. I already purchased some adj. t/c rods to pass inspection. Are adj. RUCAs and toe rods necessary? What about traction control rods (not even sure if they affect alignment)?

If you go lower than stock you need adjustable rucas or you will have uneven wear.

So adj. rucas are the bare minimum, probably?
Would they wear quicker without adjusting the toe? Can you even adjust toe in the front?

Toe is easily adjustable in the front with the stock tie rods.

Cool thanks for the feedback ryguy. I think I'll just get rucas to start off with and add little by little after that.

Toe will destroy your tires more than camber will.

Really? So you think the toe would be really bad if I dropped if maybe an inch or 1 1/2 inch?

S**t, might as well just do it right. I just cant afford it right now I guess Ill hold off on it. Coilovers, Rucas, and Toe rods.

thanks for your help guys

no an inch or an inch and a half is not going to hurt your toe that bad. I am positive you can get it into factory spec in front using stock tie rods, not sure about the back but i think you can there too.
