its not about how low you go its about the quality of the product you used to lower... If you used shitty coils you get coil bind...
I've just never heard of anyone complain about coil bind noise and I have been apart of a honda tuning community for the last 5 years. Not once.
My first set of coils were no name elames on stock shocks. The lowest of the low when it came to quality. No noises until my shocks blew at least. Second set up were function forms, and while being a great set up, they run the same as Megans and some argue the quality is pretty much the same. Just some company copying other companies designs with decent quality parts.
as for running neg camber, someone explain to me why boy racers need to have so much neg camber in a street ride, especially on the rear wheels of these FWD cars.
Eeer? First I think you are a bit confuse because you go from saying boy racers to luxurious civic. Luxury and boy racer are opposites.
Second, boy racers DONT want negative camber. Boy racers build becauseracecars and negative camber isn't claimed to be as functional as near 0 degrees.
I assume you ask about the why putting negative camber in the rear on a FWD to be dumb. It implies that you assume negative camber helps with anything in the rear for a RWD car. That is incorrect. You want the powered wheels to be as flat as possible. A FWD car is better suited for rear wheel camber because those just hold the car up. A RWD car with cambered rear wheels would have less traction where they need it most.
neg camber gets pulled back straight by high powered acceleration, do you think 110 hp FWD tin can rockets have enough power to pull the rear wheels straight? No chance, simply a poser look and an excuse to wear your tires unevenly...?
I dont think anyone with negative camber on their honda/acura thinks their car is fast enough to pull that negative camber to zero. No one even thinks about that. You are trying REALLY hard to challenge someone. Literally no one thinks negative camber makes their car faster. It's not a poser look? Why are you being so damn judgmental? Let people do whatever they hell they want to do. There is no such thing as being a poser. You aren't anything until you try and claim to be. Everyone has to take a first step unless you believe we are born into some stereotype we cant dig ourselves out of. But the fact remains negative camber isn't posing as anything. It's just negative camber for crying out loud.
And with the proper toe you wont see very bad tire wear. Not around -3 anyways. Further and yes you see more wear, but it really isn't as bad as people make it out to be IF YOUR TOE SETTING ARE CORRECT.
IS this what the whole ILX community is like? Luxury Civics?
WHY SO JUDGEMENTAL? Why do you care what others are doing?
And why does everyone think everyone is going luxurious. All I have seen are 3 pairs of racing wheels. Blacked out chrome, wheels, tint, some intakes here and there. So far its been pretty damn becauseracecar across the entire board. I have been the only one to my knowledge to proclaim to be a Luxury/VIPstyle build where as others are talking about turbos, superchargers, and track days.
