I had neuspeed sports on my integra and I got by without a camber kit. I did wear through my tires fast however. If you can afford it I would recommend getting one. At least get one for the front. You can always use washers as spacers for the back.

How do you liks the kmac camber kit? I am debating on kmac or skunk2. I am closer to getting the skunk2 right now. There are just not that many with kmac (not saying that means anything bad), but I hear a lot about skunk2's kit.

I do know that I hear Ingalls is poo! :)

Hey, I have a 98 civic EX and I am prob. going with eibach pro-kit. Will I need a camber kit? or will I be ok since I am not dropping too low?? thanks for the info:confused: :confused:
From my opinion...if your car isn't droped more than 2 inches....then you won't need a camber kit.. :)

i am sitting on neuspeed race springs, so its a 2.25 front and 2.0 rear. plenty of ground clearance, and camber kit to tire clearance.
--What kind of fender gaps do you have?
--What car is this all on?
--Did you install the camber kit yourself?
--Do you have to lube it to keep it from squeaking?
--How low do you think you could go with the kmac kit before having problema?

Sorry about all the Q's. Just ready to order and like to hear all sides of the kit.

Thanks!

my gaps are pretty tight...i dont know exactly what.
this is on a 1998 civic ex
yes we installed it ourselves, its kind of a bitch, because the ball joint on your control arm is a pain in the ass, so if youre not too comfortable working on your car, id say have someone install it.
my alignment was VERY fucked up after i installed it, and so i went and got an alignment at a local shop, and the tires pulled in perfectly. my advice to you is to get all the hardware on and in place, and drive straight to get your stuff aligned ASAP. they will deal with the camber, thats why you have the kit!
i dont know how low you want to go, but my drop is pretty low IMO, and i dont see any problems. the part i think that youre worried about as far as clearance goes is the actual camber adjuster, and when installing the kit, you can have it face inwards(to the car-preferable for clearance issues), or outwards(to the street). it is made this way to compensate for negative or positive camber/caster, and you want 0 camber/caster. put it on yourself, and have them adjust it at the alignment shop.:D

I have a 2000 civic ex and I put those same springs on. You will NOT need a camber kit with a drop that small. After I installed the springs I had my suspension re-aligned and they had no problem doing it without a camber kit. A camber kit is not necessary until you drop somewhere between 1.5"-2".
