2 Lowering problem

Hi,
I'am lowering about 3-4 inch and here my 2 questions

First, I got skunk2 front camber kit, and I heard the balljoint suck, I run them for about 2 months and now my car is at the storage for winter and before I store it, I already heard a noise. I am thinking about replacing the camber kit BUT, If I remove my adjustable balljoint, could I  still have my wheels straight with oem table + balljoint ( don't want to have many camber use on my tires)
My car is very low, I am gonna run Groundcontrol + tokiko strut on 15x7 165/45

I dont know if I did not get your answer , but with out an ''alignment'' (getting your wheels correctly straight at the garage) last summer my new tires had no thread in 2 months, because lowering my car give extreme camber.
So can i get my wheels okay, without skunk2 front camber kit?

Np man. Lowering your car with stock camber arms. Will give you negative camber no matter what. Is that what you're asking?

ive got the skunk2 front camber kit and I have not had any problems with it whatsoever. Not sure if that is the problem.

Yes, I dont want -6 degree of camber, I was wondering if stock can get me to -2 degree

my front is dropped on stock with no adjustables an I have lil camber an no wear, but I also paid for an alignment. if u don't that's how u get wear on ur tread, lowering affects not only camber but ur toe which is the main reason I paid for it to be fixed. I went thru tires like crazy like ur sayin lol. post pics up tho like stated ^^
