do I need caber kit with tein ss coilover kit?

im going to buy the tein ss coilver kit for my 03 accord v6 coupe.I need to know if Im going to need a caber kit in the front or the rear. I dont plan on droping it to low, im going to be using 20x8.5 wheels with 45 offset. 235 or 245-35-20 tires.

since there 20'' maybe 1.5 -2'' front and 1'' in rear. Im just trying to get a small gap between the tire and fender. So I need a caber kit for the rear? If yes, then which one for this setup?

i dont think you will need it. i'm on tein ss with 19x8.5 wheels and dropped as much as i could go without ripping the fenders apart.. and i don't need a camber kit.

how come it says rear lowering range is from 1.7"+ for our accords on tein's website?

does it mean it can't be any higher than that? i already placed my order but i don't want to drop it 1.7". max i would go is probably 1" all 4 corners.

do the numbers on the websites mean a drop from stock height or is it something else?

If you are looking at the 4dr with SS-p yes the min amount you can lower it is 1.7" it is 1.3" for the SS and Basics

The 2dr has a little different specs on it.

install the SS's, let it settle...go in for an alignment and see if you need it or not.

i would get it either way. if you dont need it u can always sell it.

Yes forgot to mention that. SS-P on 4dr V6.

Actually I don't really mind a 1.7" drop but my wheels could be a problem.

I have 17x8 et48 with 225/50-17 goodyears. The goodyears stick out of the fender like 1/3" in the front (i guess coz of the round sidewalls). Rears are tucked in okay but I'm wondering if I'll have to roll my fenders for them to work. I already only have less than 1.5 finger gap there.

The offset in sedans makes it almost impossible to upgrade wheels like that!
