trying to have camber correcting lower bushings in Feb, I am still waiting on factory samples.

Upper arms will be max negative camber arms with airbag clearance and fixed ball joint.

I know this is old...but is there an update on this for custom knuckles, and less stress on the upper ball joint?

Also, OP. Ive done option 1 and 2. I have S9 FUCAs along with T demand shorted steering knuckles. They have done me great and the geometry correction and clearance is generous, it is the most expensive option...but, however, has worked best for me.

Mike, when you're talking camber correcting with LCA bushings, you're saying that these will add + camber correct? I am in the market for more - camber for my front end, my RCAs, FUCAS, and OEM LCAs are maxed, as well as my steering knuckles, do you have anything that I can squeeze a few more degrees out of my set up? I am on the OEM FLCAs, maybe a different set of FLCAS or even bushings to add more - camber?

*Side note, my FUCAS are maxed at -5, but my steering knuckles correct +3 leaving me with -2 total in the front*

Just a quick question on how the knuckles are correcting camber? Most interposed RCA's are camber adders because they relay the lower ball joint. Now we can make customer knuckles that are 1-P and can add negative camber, or we can modify the factory arms or we can make new lowers. Our bushings will add another 1.5 degrees.

The Mevotech arms offer a nice factory replacment with bushings and a ball joint that is representative of factory. The enhanced boot is tougher that the factory boot so it should hold up to more abuse. Other than that, they are designed to factory replacement. If you are extremely lowered or have different setup goals than stock, that is where the adjustable options come into play.
