this one is adjustability from 1.4-3 degrees and i have a general idea how it is going to be installed, but i dont know how to align it to correct my camber. there are no marks on the kit and i think it would be pretty hard to know exactly where to line it up. anyone else have these kits? this kit has a sliding plate on the bottom that is held by tightening a bolt down against it...to give you a better idea

You will have to get the alignment done you can't guess since the type you have is camber and caster adjustable. And yes the caster is adjustable before someone fucks with me on this cause if you put the front one in further than the back one or vise-versa you are altering the caster.

Take car to alignment shop and have them put the kits on and align car. If you bought the type that is a replacement for the control arm-you can measure the distance between the mounting points and preset the new parts. That is what we did with the Civic-the CRX uses shims (SCCA rule) in the rear. If you have the Ingalls style that replace the bushings on the upper control arms-set them all the way in to start with and have the shop move them from there.
The writer is correct that the Caster is also affected to a small degree.
