Default Questions about lowering?

I have a 96 Accord LX that I wanna drop a bit. My questions are:

1. Do I NEED a camber kit?

2. If I drop 1.5-2 inches, what is the max rim size I can go without tires rubbing?

3. Coilovers or springs? (where's the cheapest place I can get either?)

1. You do not need a camber kit. Anything under a 2" drop you can get away with just getting the car aligned (make sure you have 0 degrees toe), and keep your air pressure at recommended levels.

2. I would recommend 17s. They fit the body very well, and still allow you to run a good sized tire, for comfort and security.

3. I would say Coilovers any day. Because you have the adjustability, you can raise/lower the car exactly to your liking. The cheapest coilovers that are worth getting (stay away from no-name junk), are Function&Form Type 1s. You can get them for $600 shipped on eBay. F&F were designed for people who want to just slam their cars, they aren't the most comfortable or highest quality. Some other setups to look at are: Koni Yellow/Ground Control, Tein Ss, KSport, BC Racing, D2 Racing.
