I think that's the car from Japan. I am not really sure how he did that front. The IS C from HI has the Megan front upper control arms installed and someone said it makes contact up top. Maybe that guy is on air too. I hear it's not too good to go so low on AWD. someone can correct me if i'm wrong.

That is ridiculously ugly. Sffd103 is correct, if you are AWD it's not recommended to go too low or too much camber.

Probably completely custom, but perhaps using a Megan UCA WITH a SPC ball joint could net you something close to that up front.

I'm guessing you haven't slammed your IS yet? Because there are wobbles during accelerations from the stretched axles, along with expected soon-to-be ripped CV boots. I used to own one and got rid of it just for those reasons. What a headache.

BTW, with natural camber (if you go this low), you should be at around -2.4 to -2.7 degrees... plus with your ball joints on top of that, you should be able to hit -3.9 to -4.2. Which is very aggressive anyways.

Oh yeah, that's very aggressive. I'm running 19x8.5 +15 with 225/35 tire on natural -2.4 camber. I had to roll and pull front fenders just so I can turn. And I still rub while turning.

Try 20x9 225/35 ...Fender mods are a must...The next thought I have is to stretch the tire much more up front..How much did it cost to have the front fenders pulled?

*Edit...And Just noticed you're from Ct also...Who did the work?
