That's cool, but I never said the front had max camber. The rears are the ones that are maxed out, if I can get more camber in the rear I'd be in business.

Anyone have any tricks to get more camber in the rear?
go lower.............

I tried that, it's not enough. I need a couple more degrees of negative camber to tuck the tires in better before I can go lower and stay lower.

get a camber kit, but install it reverse. or you can fabricate/ mod arms.

a guy used those before like 2 years ago? and the pillow ball joint slipped through or broke off. i wouldnt touch those grant.

back to the op, run 255/35/18s in the rear. that size should actually stretch better than a 245/40. your tires are way too thick, get some falkens for a better stretch ie, 512/502. def more camber though.

It was proven that that person improperly installed those TC sportline front UCA, so it was user error and not part failure.

I have a 235/40 stretched on the 12" rear right now and it actually fits good when on the car with the current camber. But if i wanna daily it I'll need to work my fender flare to start 1" earlier and end .5" later

Yeah I love the Emitz on this car, but both sets of wheels are posted for sale, if they sell then I'll post my BBS LM's, Brombachers and my Lowenharts for sale and then buy some Sport Maxes in bubble gum sizes to fit in with the cool crowd
