The buying of parts just never ends.

As some of you already may know I need to get some new tires. However before I get my new tires and rims I want to install a camber kit on the lude. I have some eibach reds which I believe are a 2 1/2 to 3 inch drop (ill have to double check on that). I don't want to tear up my new tires and cup em real bad. So I wanna get this done here asap, as I need my new tired asap.

where did you guys buy your camber kits from? What brand is best for price and durability?

I plan on installing these myself then buying a new set of tries and wheels then having an alingment done at the same time. How much of a pain in the butt was it to do?

Yeah that's actually who I think I'm going with.
I'm guess the obly only camber kits available are those that replace the ball joints?
That's going to be a beast of a job. Not sure how bad it will be on a honda but I know with other ball joint replacements we had to use a hydrolic press to get the old ball joints out. Are we talking the same with the ludes? Are there other kits that avoid that? Easuier install that is.

i got a bj camber kit from advance auto made by northstar. it was only 100 for both of them and they are good quality. to get the bjs out you can rent a ball joint/front end service kit from advance auto or a friend, or you can find someone with a shop press but then you'll have to take the whole a arm off. If you want to spend a bit more $ the Ingals are nice they are about 160 i think on ebay. There are other camber kits available, they go where the 2 a arm bolts are.. like this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/97-98...spagenameZWDVW
