Camber Kits?

Going to be slamming my Prelude with Tein SS's that I'll be getting soon. Was told I should get camber kit or I'll notice camber wear. Any suggestion on brands? I can only find OBX for fronts. Ingalls are fairly pricey so trying to stay under $150 for both front and rear links.

Re: Camber Kits?

Ingalls makes both front and back for the 5th gen. It'll cost about $150.00 for the back alone because they are sold separately not in pairs. They sqeak really bad mine drove me crazy so I took the back off.

Re: Camber Kits?

you will notice more wear on your tires from toe than camber. camber kits arent really needed and some can cause damage to your car. when you get your new suspension you will need to get it aligned anyways. just make sure they get the toe as close to zero as possible. if you want a kit just for piece of mind, look into adjustable ball joints instead.

I'm most likely going to be at -1. I'm expecting the wheels to be tucking when lowered. I'll have the suspension installed and I'll see how badly my camber is.

Re: Camber Kits?

Get a wheel alignment first, and see if you need a camber kit. You may find you don't.
