Default 02 Accord Alignment Specs

I have just installed some Tanabe DF-210 lowering springs and went and got an alignment. The rear needs to be adjusted, so I have ordered an Eibach Pro Alignment Kit. I am trying to figure out what settings to put it at to match the OEM set-up.

Why did you need this aftermarket alignment kit? Do you have bent suspension components? If it's just for camber correction then it's probably not actually needed if you just get the toe set to 0, making sure that thrust angle is as close to 0 as humanly possible, and rotate the tires regularly.

But as for settings, it would have to be on an alignment rack to set it up properly, unless you have camber gauges to use for DIY alignments.

The guy at the alignment place said that the rears do not have an adjustable camber feature, also his records show no settings for the rear, since his information comes from the factory settings recommendations. He sais that he adjusted the toe as much as possible, but the tires still tilted in from the top.

As long as the toe is adjust to 0 (or factory spec) then you shouldn't have any problem with camber in the rear.

Most of these guys doing alignments are either clueless or trying to make a buck selling extra parts.

The 02 accord comes from the factory with -0.5 deg camber in the rear.

yeah, most cars do, to maintain a tendency to understeer for safety purposes. A little more negative camber won't hurt anything, as long as the toe is zero'd out.
