The drop links will need replacing and will set you back about £25 also camber bolts around £25 and then a decent garage to adjust them. Camber bolts are essential or you'll ruin your tyres

Mine were in good condition and came off easily, but they'd never have gone back on. It's definitely worth replacing them. Fit the springs yourself and you'll save a fortune but get a decent garage to finish the job.

Is this right? if you fit the Eibach lowering springs, you have to fit drop links and camber bolts and get them set up. I thought it was a simple swap.

Mind you, my son fitted Tein springs on his ep3 type r and it goes through front tyres in less than 10k miles!

think the drop links are more of a why you there do them as sometimes you need to cut off the drop link as the threads and bolt sieze a bit its just if you struggling and you break one your stuck as for the camber bolts i was the same aint heard of these before i bought the civic just used to go n get tracking done afterwards i will get the drop links just incase tho

you dont need the camber bolts but if you do fit them it allows the tracking to be set to run some negative camber improving cornering ability even more. its not a must have but as you need to get the tracking done anyway and the camber bolt replaces one of the bolts you will have taken out anyway then why not do it?
