I doubt your springs are the problem.  Shocks go bad but springs that don't
get overloaded will last the life of the vehicle.

And from talking to Rob G about his lowering springs it doesn't cause any
problems with camber.  If you think they are a problem I have a brand new
pair from Rob, and you can have my OE's once I swap them out.

I found this also:

"Camber or toe wear, indicates misalignment due to loose, worn or
bent steering linkage components. Many camber and toe wear problems
can be traced to spring fatigue, which causes the vehicle's frame to
ride closer to the road. Once the vehicle is below the vehicle
manufacturer's specifications, it is not possible to achieve the
correct camber change designed into the suspension without replacing
the springs. The vehicle also experiences excessive toe change as the
suspension travels through bounce and rebound again causing abnormal
tire wear."

I take this to mean that if my springs are totally shot I will have
to replace them to achieve proper camber.

Do springs wear out just from having vehicle weight on them over
years even without driving? DeLoreans even came with over-tall
springs originally so I should be ok right?
