What a great build! You've done a great job with your LS and I just love the fitment.

I'm on factory air now with datasystems and I was considering on buying the Gen B RCA. Just curious why you chose the Nagisa adapter instead. Was it more so the camber or caster results? And was your camber that aggressive that you to had do the full megan kit for the rear? Right now my complaint is the front is always higher than the rear and i want to be able to lower the front more than the rear. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Awesome! Funny that an LS430 is on the banner of a drift part website.

Thanks! For some reason when you lower the LS, it doesn't get much front camber. Also, this car has caster issues. When lowered, you will notice the front and rear wheels aren't centered in the wheel arches anymore. The camber adapter will correct this caster issue and will add more negative camber as well as lower the car even more. So it corrected every issue I had.

As for the rear arms, I wanted the rear camber to match the front and to be able to recenter the wheel in the wheel arch.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty interesting to see it on there.

Where can I get one of these camber adapters? My rear wheels sit way to close to the inside of the fender closest to the rear doors. If I could center it in the arch I would be able to go lower. I haven't gotten an alignment yet so I don't know if that would help.

just curious if you had to cut the rear bumper to accommodate the dual exhaust or is that a new rear bumper? Great build thread...

not sure if this question is going to make sense, but would you have to cut the hole in the front near the tower if you went with bags first instead of coilovers? or will it still hit the top either way?
