    I've recently put in some lowered springs and koni adjustable shocks in my eg, typically as soon as I lowered the car off the jack I now have about 2.5 deg of camber and no way to dial it out as the civic has no way of adjusting camber

    Wondering what people use? Are there camber bolts companies sell? Camber plates for the top of the shocks?

    Any help would be great!!


    Thanks

    I would start off by buying camber kits for the from and getting alignment and balance to see if this fixes your problem

    Rear can be done with simple/cheap hardware

    Alignment done after install is a must. I drove mine to the shop to be aligned and all four tires squeaked like crazy in the parking lot leading to Sears.

    i'm guessing he means getting longer bolts with washers to bring the link out some, but not sure...

    yes.....exactly. This is something that guys have been doing on this chassis for almost 2 decades now.....nothing I came up with myself but i is how my rear camber was dealt with 15 years ago. Its just a way to keep things cheaper. Probably works on other models too.

    Must be a thread or two out there that gives a better explanation. I was told this by a Import performance shop owner back in 1997.

    Makes sense - cheap as too, so simple can't believe I never thought of it all these years
