How much did it cost you to install ur Rear Camber Kit???

Im just wondering how much the average going rate for installing the rear camber kit. So let me know how much u paid. Would appreciate it. And if anyone wants to find a good deal on a SPC Camber Kit. I found a shop that could get u the pair of 3 arms for $250 (plus tax). Darkside Motoring, its a shop in socal.

Not sure, I spent about $600 and had them do about 4 things at once. They did my rear sway bar, replaced my rotors, replaced my camber arms, and put in my Pro Kit springs.

I was actually about to reply to ur post about ur 1 arm camber kit. lol. So u suggest u should have it toed in at -0.04 and cambered at -1.8? I just want my tires to last. Since my car is pretty low the rear wheels are toed in about -1 degree and cambered about -3 or more. No bueno.

I don't know about the toe, I had them put it at the exact recommendation from Honda, not just within specs, but dead center. My camber is a tiny bit aggressive at -1.8, but nothing that will wear your tires rapidly. Toe at -1 degree is nuts! You'll have chopped up wheels.

I know right??? Well thats what happens when u lower the accords 3.5 in or more. I do want the camber to be a little agressive but wat I have right now is too much. I hate it, theres this buzzing sound from riding on the edge of the tires.

I have my Tein SS almost maxed out now, and I am cambered like crazy meaning I am buying the control arms asap. Other wise say good bye to your tires. and with my 10,5 in the reat they are not cheap by any means... if you want them to last raise your car a little until you get the arms.

All it takes is a socket wrench and an open end wrench to install them, then roll to the alignment shop and pay for that.

It's seriously 4 bolts that are easily accessible, 2 on for each camber arm. 1 hour for a newb with sockets, ratchet and wrenches. 20minutes for someone who knows what they are doing.
