Okay so the guys at the dealership lied to me, they said it was going to be 585 and said there was no way that they were going to do 500 ( at aquisition cost ). So my question is, should i get this for 585? If i do, I will install it myself, and my question is, would I have to get a camber kit for this? I dont know if I need the camber kit for this because I have another lowered car with a camber kit and it helped out the tire eating monster before. Before w/o a camber kit, the tire eating monster was in effect. So, would I need a camber kit for this car? Front bolts and a rear camber arm? Since I do not plan on lowering the car past 1.2" or so, I plan on sticking with HFP. THanks.

Just bolt them on and go for it !!!

No camber adjustments needed in the front or rear. I've had my installed for about 6,000 miles and can not see any uneven ware on my tires. $585 is a good price from your dealer. I don't know where you live, so I don't know what the sales tax is in your area, but your cost with tax should be around $635 or so. You should be able to get them on eBay for $600 shipped or try DCH Honda at 800-326-5839 and ask for Mike in parts. He may give you a better price. :thumb:

So your alignment after installing the hfp kit was back to factory specs w/o the camber kits? Does your car feel like it handles better? Does it have a lower stance than before? thanks!

Well with the HFP kit it actually does improve the handling and it also does lower the car by 0.8 inches. Also, an alignment will bring it back to specs, which is why Honda recommends you to do it after the install.

$585 is super cheap for the HFP sport suspension kit. That's a hard to beat price if you're absolutely set on buying it.
