No, they aren't always necessary. I have the same setup, Teins and KYB. I also have the camber arms just as a security measure to make sure I don't wear my tires unevenly. But before I had them my alignment was always within the acceptable specs.

Not really unless you're running an aggressive setup, the only reason I have camber kits on my Z is too run -4 camber in the rear

I was in spec on the rear but had bad wear. So I got them to be safe. Much better now.
