Default Question on the TCS Rear Upper control arm

I've searched but havent found what i've been looking for. I have also pm'ed a few forum members who have them but havent responded.

I wanted to know if the tcs sports rear upper control arm for the is300 bolts right up to a 98-05 gs or does it need any modification? Also how much negative camber does it give?

Yes, it bolts right up... as for how much camber it gives, no clue. How much camber are you trying to achieve?

could be more depending on what your overall height is...because of the suspension setup the lower you are the more camber you will have. my car right now without the upper arm is at -6.5 with the lower camber bolt fully pushed out

got mine installed yesterday, no issues whatsoever. tucking rim with 19x9.5 -6 equivalent to 19x10.5 +7
havent gotten alignment yet but i had the same fitment with 19x10.5 +22 with stock adjustments @ -6.5 degrees of camber. i would say this is at about -9-10?
