Re: lowering prelude

Depends, if u get adjustable coilovers, like TEIN or KSport, u cud drop the car as low and u want and make the shocks real stiff that u hit a bump or w.e, ya car wont even bounce lol. Thats how i did mine. But the best drop i think is wen the fender is right there like a quarter inch frm the wheel. Thats a beautiful drop right there. So since u got a 5th gen, maybe like a 1.7'' drop i think, around there

Re: lowering prelude

I'm planning to buy sk2 adjustable spring to lower my car for about 1.5 or 1.7 just to fill the gap, but I'd like to know first if I need the camber kit if I drop my car that much?..

Re: lowering prelude

No, for a drop that size you wont. Just make sure to get an alignment afterwards.

Depending on your suspension set up. This was mine until i came to my senses. How low are you really trying to go on a 15" rim also? Slammed?
