    so it would be up to me as to how much I would want to lower the car. I was told that if I am going to lower it more than "1.5 to get a camber kit. I am going to put some fifteens on it too. Would I need a camber kit? Like I said I am new to the lingo, what is KYB AGXs?

    no those springs are not adjustable height
    they lower the car about an inch and a half or so
    camber is not an issue
    KYB is the brand of the shocks
    AGX is the model

    the KYB AGX shocks are adjustable and will allow you to tune the ride a little

    with those springs and 15" wheels you should be left with about 2 fingers of wheel gap (looks very good)
    your suspension geometry will be good
    the ride will not be harsh and bouncy

    for a street setup for someone looking for a stiffer ride and a little lower stance but still wants some comfort its an excellent choice

    CRX-YEM has this set up on his 2nd gen CRX and it looks and rides great... even holds up to the occasional autocross with no problem

    theres some pics of his car in this thread

    he might have better shots that show how the car sits somewhere
    but that should give you an idea
