Default Sage REAR RCA Install Pics

Hi Folks..

After 6 mos of road testing, I figure it was time to post up the install process of the Rear RCAs. I am running these on stock suspension. I couldn't tell you exactly how much negative camber this applied to the tire. It is slight, but this kit does offer you three different bracket placements, that could push in, push out or leave the tire angle flat. I had to push my tire angle in wards to avoid hitting my top fender walls, which I still do on occasion since my tires are overspec. I haven't had any issues running these rear RCAs or front RCAs either.

On wards to the progression of the install.

Car mounted and rear rotor supported ready for removal.


Removing the stock bolts


Bolts removed






Putting on the bracket




Screwed in bottom bolt




Now ready for the top bolt



Notice how top bolt block has a hole for the top bolt? You can flip that block around to make the hole towards the car, this placement will push the angle of the tire slightly outwards. There is also a another set of block inserts where the bolt hole is straight in middle for a flat tire angle placement.


Screwing in the top bolt




And that's about it to installing these brackets.. I personally couldn't do it since it I don't have the tools to raise the car. I suppose someone with keen car skills could do this themselves. Unfortunately that isn't me.

I got this done at Johnny's Auto Center in San Marcos.. that's the owner's car on the left and the person that did the install. His GS is sicker than MINE.

looks great

glad to see these are an option now. great way to give your car that lowered look and stick with the OEM suspension. I was rather impressed with just the fronts.

Now its time for an AWD owner to test a full set up to see if they get the wobble. I bet this will work

Is that a non-awd? Has anyone with AWD done this? I know the AWD has more wheel gap than RWD.

Looks good. How much of a drop did you go with in the rear? Where did you get them and how much?

I'm on stock shocks so the ride to me feels like stock. It isn't any harsher than normal. I do rub on occasion. I'm running 245/35/20 and 275/30/20, my tire walls are pretty thin so I naturally feel more bumps than usual. Not too bad though..

Yup 25mm.
