Tell me about it... Before I

Tell me about it... Before I adjusted the front toe, I burned through a set of Toyos, so I was sure to get it aligned before putting the Advan A032R's on (the soft ones even). The part that will suck will be going back to any other tire, these things GRIP!!! If I don't have at least 1/3 tank of fuel, I can easily create enough G's to move the fuel away from the pickup and cause the car to sputter out. =)

Ohh and I'm just trying to conserve fuel of course... if you don't slow down for the corners, you don't have to accelerate from the apex. =)

Do you know if a 94-01 teg front camber kit will fit a crx? The kinda square cheap type that has four things? I'm looking for one used and cheap,

Are you talking about the style where you move the balljoint on slots in the upper control arm? I've seen some horror stories with those.

IMHO, I prefer the non adjustable camber kits. There is MUCH less to fail or come loose. Also, don't go too nuts with washers in the rear, you'll want some negative camber, unwanted oversteer can be a scary thing.

It looks like one link to a picture did not work. Also, no final pics of how rex looks lowered. So I will need an alignment. But whats with the camber kit? Will I need one if I only lower 1.5"?

I haven't done the final lowering yet, waiting until before I put the rims on and wondering if I'll get a front camber kit.

This is best or do it yourself, you don't wanna burn up your tires.

It makes the tires go straight up and down like stock rather than / \ if you're looking from the front of the car. You won't need one for 1.5 inch drop, but if I wanna do three I will.

I'll post up some threads

I'll post up some threads here as well as do my own DIY on it. I gotta finish trying to mount my speakers with linoleum right now though. It's basically just finding the toe by some method and tweaking it until it's set, not hard it seems.
