How Low can You go

just curious as to how low you can go before you need camber kits... I'm probably just going low enough to remove the fender gap on my 03 2dr v6mt

^ That's about what my drop is I only
needed a rear kit the front was within
spec. I had both kits when I went for
alignement and just returned the front
end parts.

I'd say 1.2" as a starting point. The minute you lowered your car, you will need a rear camber kit. When you go really low betwee 1.5" to 2", you will then need a front camber kit.

Those ofcoarse are optionional. You don't have to do all that. Camber kit supposed to keep your tires' camber/toe at the right angle for better performance and life.

if u get a camber kit on the front using the balljoints, be careful cuz u could have clearance issues. i'm having those now, i need to get my fenders rolled, but just hoping a company will soon make front upper control arms for my car. u'd definitely need one on back, u might could get by without one on front...thinkin about takin mine off front cuz of clearance

I barely had a 1 finger gap in the front and rear on my accord coupe. I only had an Ingalls rear camber/toe kit and my front was well within the specs. My car was slammed at least 2 inches all around on tein coilovers.

I only have H-Tech, and I need a rear camber kit. I think the HFP might be the only one that doesn't need it.

yeah, now that i'm lookin at mine, i don't think i needed one on the front cuz the kit didn't do too much. but the rear i can definitely tell a difference...needed it back there
