Default eibach front adjustable upper control arm need a review please!

As the title states... has anyone here used Eibach's upper control arms before? i find it hard as hell to find a review on them on our cars. i see a lot of reviews for the SPC uca's but not the Eibachs model number is 5.72270K Google it if you please. Ive been searching for the past 2 days. i want to buy it, hopefully as a better alternative to the SPC uca's . Reason being i want to adjust some positive camber up front as im riding kinda low and wearing out all side wall and shop cant get my camber alignment right upfront. i got 2k miles on fresh rubber and only side wall is getting buffed. if i can recall my front camber was like at -3 or so ...also the Eibachs also have a rear camber kit also need some feed back on that as well
if i cant find some help, Im thinking for the rear RCA or megan camber arms witch ever would help me get a Lil positive camber back in the rear (im at 3.5in rear) . my toe adjustments are kinda funky also due to my ride height also... side note car was hit from the front before but title still clean...and At Stock height, alignment was pretty close to oem spec.

sorry if there is anything confusing on my post. I am not a avid poster , i was so frustrated searching with no luck i had to try and post for some help /// any would be appreciated thanks in advance !

heres a link to the eibachs front uca

They're built the same way as SPC's. IMO you're going to get the same effect and quality. The joint is the problem on the SPC's.. The Eibachs are built the same way as you can see, so you're going to have the same joint problem.

Fyi Eibachs are rebranded SPC units.
