Ingalls front control arm camber kit honda accord

Hey, I have ingalls camber kit control arm, and my (driverside)control arm still hits the inner fender (metal part above the control arm) when I was drop to about a finger gap with my stock wheels. Ever time I hit a road bump or dip it would hit. Does anyone else have this problem?

Yup. I have them and mine still hit. The "low profile" control arms only buy you a LITTLE bit of extra room. I was hoping it would allow the entire control arm to go up into the strut tower...but yea it's not.

I thought I was the only one that has the Ingalls and still have the problems D:.

I guess there is no other option.

A Local accord guy cut out the area that was bottoming out

I heard wider wheels prevents it. Since I put my TL's on they don't hit or from what I noticed. But the rubber rubb now, I think Im going to get 225/45

Yah, I had these when I was 0 finger gap. It was terrible!!

It did correct the camber but because of it's "low profile" design, it made the control arm so much closer to the stock tower and it always hits. It sounds really bad. lol.

So I'm running my stock control arms now with less hitting, but it still hits only on medium-hard bumps. But my tires are warm out so I'm gonna try the camber ball joints next time, that would fix my camber and since I'm using the stock control arm I should have more room or movement.

So Ingalls Control Arm Camber kit = Hitting


OEM stock CA = Less hitting

Anyone tried the OEM Stock CA + Ball Joint camber kit?

No, I think I saw one that was just normal. Basically the ball joint is different. On the normal one...the ball joint sticks up like the stock one. The low profile one has a flat plat on top instead of a protruding ball joint.

Just installed my Ingalls control arms today. They hit only on medium to high bumps. but it only happens on my passenger side, rarely the drivers side.

Ever since I slammed my car even more, my camber hit doesn't hit as much or as hard.

These maybe reasons why

Instead of OEM 16X 6.5 I now have 17X8

When I dropped my car more, I believe that makes your suspension stiffer

and on top of dropping it, my camber went slightly negative. Therefore increasing the distance between the strut tower and control arms.


I might be getting some 17X 7.5 next and an alignment, lets see whats gonna happen

Well the control arms are mounted horizontally.

And the control arm hits the tower vertically.

Lol so no it wont do anything
