Not sure where you heard that from.....camber kits don't add more stress to suspension parts. Slamming the crap load out of your suspension and not buying the proper parts and researching is what puts more added strain on suspension.

The only reason you would want them is to be able to dial in a particular degree of camber to the wheels that would benefit the vehicle in track use or other off-road applications. Most important thing to be watchful of on hondas is the Toe adjustment. Those can greatly impact your tire wear if they are not set properly and they even make aftermarket adjustable ones for the rear to dial it in almost perfect. You'll need to keep in mind that if you have no clue as to how to adjust either one of these then you are simply buying parts that will be useless. So, a really good reputable alignment shop should help you set them properly and save ya time, money and tires.

So if you ever decide to "follow the leader" and slam the car.....I can guarantee damage will be done to axles, tie rod ends/inner, wheel bearings, bushings, shocks and even body panels. If the car was a show queen that would NEVER see asphalt....then you could simply through in all of these parts without any worries. Unfortunately that isn't the case and well.....roads anywhere I'm the U.S. won't be forgiving, they will damage parts non stop until you correct it.

FUCK YES ITS WORTH IT! First mod everyone needs on them mad JDM civics! Buy some off Ebay and set them to the super negative setting, I'm talkin -10 degree camber! If you aint rockin -10 or more then you might as well go home because you just a pussy ass bitch if you can't handle the hellaflushness. Then you need to get some ultra wide wheels that are at least 9" wide and stretch a 165 tire on them like a pimp! That's how you get all them panties droppin!
