will natural camber be enough

im ready to work on my stance game and want to go lower. as of now im sitting mid way down the tire but with no spacers. my wheels are +40 and im running a 225 tire on a set of 18x8s. will natural camber be enough in the front to get me all the way down to the rim on just that minimal stretch or will i need upper camber arms? i want to add spacers to get the wheels out there to almost flush. as of now im functional but im tired of being slammed but sunk in a bit..... what size spacers should i go with?

first drop the car, then measure how big of a spacer you need.

Camber kits correct the negative camber that lowering your car produces.

Camber kits are sold separately. For the front look into skunk2, Megan or ingalls. For rear ingalls, wicked, Megan or jpower.

Do I need a camber kit if i were to drop my 2003 accord coupe on H&R lowering spring (Approximate 1.5 to 1.75 drop). Will the natural camber be ok with this application? Im just purchasing the lowering springs and using them with the stock struts (until I have the money to purchase aftermarket struts). I dont feel like the camber will be affected too much with just and inch and a half drop.

wow i forgot about this thread. definitely needed camber arms up front but on 18's the drop was stupid having it that low because i couldn't go ANYWHERE around down. my j pipe is smashed to **** and back and it was just miserable overall so I'm back up to about half the tire. still sitting slammed but not flush with the rim anymore.

So are you getting spacers still? They would look good paired with 215/40r18 tires. You need to do some fender work to make it happen though. I think you could pull off a 20 mm spacer easy without camber arms, even wider in the rear with a good roll.

She is rolled and pitched flat. Would need to be pulled or add some camber for sure. I'm at that magic height where no rubbing and no bottoming out so just cruising right now. I can't afford h&r spacers right now since I'm building a new motorcycle from scratch.
