Hi guys, I've ordered some 30mm H&R-springs to lower my car and I have a couple of dumb questions:

Do I have to get camber adjustment bolts and shims? Can I use Eibach's camber adjustment kit if I have H&R-springs? Can the wheels be properly aligned without the adjustment kit and shims? Also; where can I buy all of this from?

Thanks a lot for the quick response guys :D If you don't need the camber adjustment kit to align the wheels properly, why do a lot of people still get them?

If you want to adjust the camber, you need the camber adjustment bolts and shims. However this isn't a requirement of lowering - just like you don't need to lower if you want the camber adjusting - they are separate items.

As such some people go for the lowering and don't bother adjusting the alignment.

Ah I see, I thought that adjusting the camber was a part of normal wheel alignment. Is there much difference handlingwise if you get the camber adjusted or not?

It's a bit of a tricky question to answer - mainly due to the wide range that comes out of the Honda factory! Some have found there to be a significant change whilst others not so much.
