should i get a camber kit?

i was wanting to drop the prelude about 1.3 in the back/1.5 in the front. it has 17's on it right now.

does anyone think i need a camber kit..

right now it is my DD, until i can find another 4th gen to drive around. thats why i dont want to go any lower because beyond that i know i would need a kit to be smart about doing it.

The camber may be more of a problem with 17's than it would be with a smaller wheel size. I dropped my '91 Integra Sedan 1.5" on 17" OZs and the camber was horrible, then I switched back to 14" fat 5's and the camber/alignment seemed to have corrected. Rides smooth now, also. With the 17's the ride felt crappy.

I'd say with a drop lower than 1", it'd be a good idea to get a camber kit. Even if it's only off a degree or two...you'll be eating through those 2xx/40/17 tires every other month, trust me.

i got a set of 17's, with hankooks on em, for 200$ off a forum. it was a good deal for the time.. the rims are still really clean.. but the ride is pretty ruff.. im thinking 15's again. i miss that smoothness in my ride
