it is not a must, but highly reccomended, an alignment is DEF reccomended, but i would put the camber kits in first, incase adjustments need to be made.....

youll thank yourself later when you save yourself the wear on your tires

What kind of deal can you get on them? I would want both front & rear kits.

I called SPC and was told the front/rear kit for our car (2001 Civic) would be product # 60090. This would consist of a pair of 81260 arms for the front and a pair of 67230 easy arms for the rear. The kit will provide a 1 1/2 - 3 degree adjustment. The only info I couldn't get was whether the SPC uses rubber or polyurethane bushings.

Well, guys, I can get them to you for about $225-230 shipped. The front camber alignment is more or less just bolts, i dunno how they work, i don't have a front camber kit, but my camber isn't off. anyways, that price is for front and rear, but I assure you that these are the highest quality

I emailed the shop doing the group buy and he actually suggested that I go with the Ingalls kit instead (he is selling both around the same price) because it offers more front adjustment.

Yes, same shop is doing both Ingalls & SPC. Both front & rear Ingalls will be $200 shipped. The only adjustment difference between the two is that the front Ingalls kit can do up to 2 degrees while the SPC front kit can adjust up to 1.75 degrees. Surely that .25 degree difference isn't something to be concerened about is it? Still waiting to hear if the SPC uses polyurethane bushings which I'm not sure I want because they squeak and have to be consistently greased.

What do you fellas think?

What do you think about the 1.75 degree limitation of the SPC frnot camber kit over the Ingalls 2 degree adjustment capability? Is that anything to really worry about? How much are you guys having to adjust your camber kits?

unless if your going 3-4 inches i dont think the .25" difference is going to matter. i heard that the camber is only off by like .3 degrees in the front with neuspeed sports.
