**oh and in addition, they don't allow enough adjustment to get back into spec and correct neg camber. i'm still off...but only by a little. i can't remember exactly how far off i am though...sorry


How much adj. to they allow for? I don't understand how A. you were really out of spec. or B. they don't allow for more than 2 degree of adjustment.

FWIW: The SPC arms will do both camber and toe. ±4 degree camber and ±3 degree toe.

If the ebay or Stillen aren't giving you adequeate adjustment.. Something is wrong.

well one thing is possible.. some of these arms are DESIGNED to give more negative camber, not correct negative camber from lowering the car. This was true with the Cusco front A Arms which I modified to get the results I needed.

That's one explanation.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Toykilla saving money just like i did with my headers.

good job and I hope they work out. saving money is always good.

but don't feel bad if they don't I had sent back a Y-pipe because of insanely crappy quality and not as shown in pic to an e-bay seller. ended up buying the megan racing part like i should have in the first place.

haha maybe we should start a bang for buck section on known good mods as well as mods to stay away from.

Varis duct, K&N drop in , Motordyne 5/16 plenum spacer, Megan Headers, Megan Y pipe, Stock H.I.D. conversion, Topspeed A-arms w/adjustable camber, BC Racing Coilovers, Hotchkis sways (front stiffest rear middle). Stern Beast ST1 19 inch staggered wheels , Falken FK-452 Rubber. Whiteline urethane bushings
Next temporary mod is resonated test pipes with the stock y-pipe.
Next year Stillen supercharger stage 2 kit---order stage 3 pulley separately.

Saving money isn't always the best choice. Time will tell.

ohh come on ills what about high quality cheap shit LOL!!

I did the header thingy, toykilla is doing the camber thingy!

I didnt loose out on that y-pipe cause i got a complete refund with no hassle. since the guy was so nice about it i gave him a good mark on ebay just for workin with me.

two things i cant go cheap on were the motordyne spacer and also the crank pulley set up. not smart to go cheap there!!

Varis duct, K&N drop in , Motordyne 5/16 plenum spacer, Megan Headers, Megan Y pipe, Stock H.I.D. conversion, Topspeed A-arms w/adjustable camber, BC Racing Coilovers, Hotchkis sways (front stiffest rear middle).

Verdict: ebay camber arms rock! These are absolutely the same as the Stillen arms. I just got mine today and I cant believe it. Exactly like the picture. Spherical bearings, black powdercoat... Now i wonder if these are built at the same shop as the stillen arms?
