Ok guys so now its time to replace the the rear camber arms, not sure which route I should go. Price really isn't much of an issue seeing as how both are only +/-10 from eachother. But I what I want to know is who has used them and what do you think. I have lowered the car took it to have it aligned and was told the only way to fix the rear was to replace the rear camber arms.

So lets here it, I'm open to suggestions also. These are really the only two companies I could find that have anything close to what I'm looking for.

And NO I would prefer to not have negative camber! I don't like the idea of having to replace the rear tires ever 10-15k miles.

I swear I read a post/reply on here that the JBR arms cannot be adjusted on the car, but I can't find it. That seems odd, but just relaying what I read. If that's true...well...there's your decision IMO.

Toe kills tires, camber under -2.0 is relatively safe on tires with proper tire rotations.

What were your final alignment numbers? And why limited to these brands? There are more affordable options like spc that function just fine

Those where the only brands that from what I researched seemed to be the best options. I don't have the final numbers on me at the moment. But I do know the rear camber was -2.5 on both sides. Toe was next to perfect.

Personally, -2 is certainly getting into the visible with the naked eye regime and I don't like the look. That alone to me drives adjustable arm decision.

Performance trumps aesthetics 9 out of 10 times :p

My BMW stock has visible negative camber in the rear, and it runs a 20x10 and 20x11 staggered setup which I cannot rotate.

I have the Massive Speed Camber Arms and Toe Links and they work great, very easy to adjust on the rack. I do believe the JBR ones cannot be adjusted because they have heim joints on both ends where the Massive/SPC have a heim joint on one end and a rubber/poly bushing on the other. The heim joints are technically superior, but losing the on-car adjustablity isn't a good trade off in most cases.
