what causes the rear wheels to butterfly/bend inwards? i've seen many cars that have been dropped, and with 17's/18's. this is the only reason why i haven't lowered my car. (seen too many) will this eventually happen over the years. i only want a 2" drop (at most) and 17's?

Camber adjustment. Large drops (2 inch and more) will often cause the alignment to have negative camber.

The fix is to buy camber bolts/plates if you wanna go that low.

And not everyone that drops on Sprints ends up with negative camber. From what I can tell, it's hit or miss.

Intrax will settle very close to two inches. You may want to get a camber kit just in case. Your camber could still be off even if the wheels look straight. Get an alignment check about 1 month after the springs are installed.
