    Hey all. Im thinking of this pairing. Tein lowering springs and truhart struts and shocks. Just wondering what I would need to correct the camber if any. I hate when tires stick out like that lol. Thanks everyone.

    Lowering it won't change the front camber. The rear will gain negative camber as you lower. At around 2" of drop you'll be out of oem camber spec in the rear. Your wheel width will dictate how far out into the fender they stick.

    Ok thanks Webby. I'll be leaving the stock rims for a while. So no adjust needed for the rear? Tein drops like 1.2. I really don't want any camber at all. Would I need to purchase anything in order to adjust if need be?

    If you'd like the ability to adjust the rear camber, you'd need 2 of these.



    At 1.2" drop you should still be within the factory camber range Honda has for spec.

    I've been reading around and the tein s.tech sometimes come up as 1.8 drop. I really only want 1.2. Which is correct?

    Just we are using the correct terminology, it's camber when the wheels tip in or out. Negative camber when the wheels tip in at the top, positive if the wheels are leaning outwards.
    Toe is how the wheels turn in or out.
