idk maybe, my view on it is you don't need a camber kit at all, maybe in the rear. just make sure your toe is adjusted properly

http://www.sfxperformance.com/parts/INT999025.htm this is the camber kit i have. it makes the control arms hit the fender. i would not get this one because with his drop (the same as mine) you can not dial out all of the camber (increased tire wear) this kit is not very good for spirited driving, so there is no point in leaving all of that camber.

if you're going with TSX suspension, get the TSX forks at $40 each so that you have a place to mount your brake lines. The forks are interchangeable and will make your suspension fit better.

Ok guys thanks for the advice. I got the toe adjusted and gonna keep an eye on the tire wear. It doesnt seem that bad at the moment. The front tires look like they have a bit of a lean, but If anything does seem to go wrong i'll get the balljoint kit. I read through the threads and the balljoint kit seems to have best results. Thanks again!!

My toe is now adjusted at 0 degrees in front. Rear I could not do because adjustment bolt is rusted up.

Camber not adjusted.yet.

as long as you're not more than 2-3 degrees or so(catera's for instance have 2 all the way around from the factory with no tire wear issues) camber isn't worth bothering with

Wow, this is some good info. The kind only someone in Japan can dig up. I'm suprised BC makes coilovers for us. Never knew that. They are pretty big over at ckubrsx.com and H-T.com. thanks again for the info.

No darting following road joints on the highway. To me feels like you took the parking brake off. Less tire wear too.

Rest of car is and shoud be adjusted to factory specs. Get those rusted bolts freed up.
