I got 17's (205/40/17) today and I wanna drop my car.

I have a 2" drop Progress springs right now.

Should I just put them on or buy Coilovers?

Actually I'm also thinking to buy KYB Shocks.

I drive a '00 EX.

Please let me know.

Thanks.

make sure you have the correct offset of rims on...cuz if not you will rub...have at least a +40 offset..and i prefer springs instead of sleeves.

to correct camber, you need to buy a camber kit which can range from 200 up for all four sides...most known brands are ingalls and progress, sprint

you dont have to, but your tires are gonna be eaten up every few thousand miles, i have a 2" drop and the tires gets eaten up faster than roseanne downs a big mac...get a camber kit, springs, shocks put in all at once to save money on installation...so u dont have to pay 3 times...good luck bro

Defantly get a camber kit, my car was lowered an inch or so and I had to get a camber kit because it wore the tire down and messed up my stearing. I also have a question. I am thinking of buying some coilovers, and what I want to know is what everyone thinks of Skunk2 and/or groundcontrol?

dang tell me what camber kit is 20 buxs, they are always 150 dollars when i see it

Try to search on Ebay.

Type "Civic camber", then you can see a lot of rear camber kit for $10-$20.
