    most honda's only have an adjustment for toe in//out, and not for camber. so if you wanna go through those tires in about 3 weeks, yes, get a kit.

    drop the car
    check the camber
    if its shitty then get a camber kit

    you dont want one unless you need one

    I agree with E_Solsi

    but I've always thought of it this way, if your going to do a job, do it right and do it once.
    so if you think you might need a camber kit, get a quality kit and install it when you put your springs in
    that way you can do the whole job at the same time. and not need to take things apart again to put
    your camber kit in if you end up needing one.

    Not having a camber kit on a lowered car is like this --> :kick: . From my past experience, I went through 3 sets of Kumho Ecsta Supras in about 8 months before I got camber kits. And my crx is only lowered 1.5 inches on sprint springs, so my advice is get camber kits no matter what, if anything else it'll make your steering tight like a 10 year old girl.
