Camber Kit Question

I am about to lower my prelude and im gonna buy a camber kit to go along with it. My only question is should I go with the control arm mounts or with the adjustable ball joints or which one is better cuz their both pretty exspensive but i guess itll be worth it in the long run.

Re: Camber Kit Question

you need to lower it first then take it to an alignment shop. theu can tell you how much your camber is off and that will dictate which camber correction kit to get.

Re: Camber Kit Question

Still they make different kits that very by degree. If you don't want to waste you money you need to have the alignment checked to see exactly what degree of correction is needed

Re: Camber Kit Question

I couldn't find the control arms for 5th gen anywhere so I ended up with adjustable ball joints which blew after a few months. Now I am on stock ball joints and after getting my alignment, havent had any problems just wasted a lot of money in the mean time.

"Camber -1.50 degree to +1.50 degree"

is usually the one which you want

Re: Camber Kit Question

You don't need a camber kit as long as it's not more than a 2" drop. Yes camber will cause uneven tire wear but not enough to be a real problem. What really destroys tires is toe in/out. So skip the camber kit and when you drop the lude go get an alignment and make sure they fix the toe and you should be fine.

Also, this thread should help!

Re: Camber Kit Question

It depends on what wheels this guy plans on getting... Wide wheels will demand more negative camber.
