Hey guys i wanted get the prokit for my coupe and i had a few questions.
Is it okay to used the prokit springs with the stock camber arms, dampners
and the entire stock si suspension? Secondly will there be any rub at all, i doubt there would be since its not that big of a drop?

thanks guys sorry for the noob question i just don't want to get into something that is gonna f up my car in the end.

you'll be fine. have friends who have driven 40k miles on stock suspension and skunk2 which is twice the drop. you probably will rub, but i love a little bit of rub. i want more

Yep you can use everything else stock with the prokit springs. I didn't rub any fenders but I did run on steep entrances, especially with passengers.

If you rub (I did with sportlines) it'll be on a couple of plastic clips that hold you inner fender in place. I popped those out, pushed the inner fender onto the opposite side of the metal tabs coming off the fender, and then use the handle of a screwdriver to gently bend those metal tabs upward away from the path of the tire. The tabs will still hold the inner fender just fine and the rubbing is solved.

and that was with sportline so the pro kit should have no problems.

so to prevent rub i should just take these clips out as said below and that should solve everything? or am i gonna end up needing a camber kit to solve the rubbing?
