gotcha. reason i asked is im in the market of buying a camber kit. called truhart and the rep told me they're getting a shipment at the end of the month. so im debating whether to wait or get SPC.
I had truhart on my rsx type-s a few years ago. very nice piece from them.

Passenger seat brackets complete!
I used 1-1/2"x1/4" aluminum 6061 flat bar on the front and 3"X1/4" aluminum 6061 flat bar on the rear.

Drilled out holes for the OEM stud locations and holes for the RECARO bolt locations.

Brand and/or link to the spacers? And any issues with having them while lowered?

I've never had to make custom brackets for seats before...are there any crash safety concerns with that?

I don't use spacers with my new setup. I had 20mm all around when I had my OEM sport wheels.

Of course!
You want to make sure that you don't alter the bolt down locations. Also, I made sure my seat bracket design was strong. By making a seat bracket parallel to the OEM rails/sliders, I made the entire assembly rigid.

Does the civic have airbag sensor on the passenger seat? Did you swap the mat over?

Ohh, so you removed them once you put on the Volks?
Yes. The offset of the TE37s were enough.

There were several plugs: airbag, seatbelt, heated seat controller, switches for the auto slide.

I'm going to only use the seatbelt sensor and install a resistor for the airbag plugs.

I looked for wheels for some time and jumped on a set of Volks. And I was glad I did.

I went to Evasive motorsports for Volks center caps and valve stem caps.

Had the wheels mounted at Rim and Tire center in Garden Grove, CA. Great group of people there. Didn't scratch a rim.

Specs:
18x8.5 +30
18x9.5 +40
