The rear camber definetly needs to be corrected. I believe the RSX or 2001+ Civic kits should work. Call your vendor/local shop to be sure.

As far as the front goes, you will only need +1/-1 degrees of adjustability, if even that. I bought it because I wanted to correct the camber to 0 degrees. Others people on the board would recommend that you leave the negative camber for added cornering. I wanted maximum tire life since I commute 70 miles round-trip to work each day, so I went with the front kit.

The short answer: Yes, it will correct the rear camber problem.

The +/- numbers just mean how much range you'll have vs. the stock setup. In other words, with the rear camber kit you'll be able to add up to 4 degrees of positive camber or add up to 2 degrees of negative camber (or anywhere in between those numbers). You'll want to have more positive camber added to the rear so that you'll fall within factory specs (around -0.8 degrees negative). Once you get the kit and install it (or have it installed), the alignment shop will be able to adjust the suspension to give you proper alignment. Without it, your tires would start to get abnormal wear on the inside of the tires.
