ive got tein s-tech springs, they are very nice, however ive never driven on stock setup so cant compare, it holds the road nicely though.

simony: why did you use camber kits? s-techs lower the car less than 2 inches

thanks

i like it so far.. no scratch when climbing speed bump or the ramp.. but with the lip kit, i think it will/might be.. gotta be cautious..

i wasn't planning on getting the camber kit.. but i was told it's recommended to get it for any drop.. so i just bought a set from truehonda... don't wanna mess up my car...

it applies to some drops less than 2 inches, but i would check with tire shops and get them to do an alignment and camber check.

i need a set of camber kit for mine too.

the place is the preserve forest park.. but it's not the one we met last time by schaumburg.. it's near the o'hare airport... there are couple of the parks like that nearby my place.. they are great for photoshoot..

i still haven't decided which dc to get... FujiFilm S5100 or Nikon 8700/8800.. i know nikon is good but money-wise is not so good.. because i just spent a lot lately with the drop and the HID... but more pics will be coming once i get the new dc, especially with the night shots!!!

i got a 3.2 megapix canon a300 for 200 bucks along with free printer and for a cheap one it has impressed me, to make them fit on 7thgen ive changed settings so they are the smallest and crappiest quality selection on cam., but still they are nice

Get the Nikon. I sell cameras for a living, and the fuji isnt the best quality. its all lite weight, cheap plastic.
