Lolz gotcha... I'll probably be selling my bc br regulars within the next month if you or anyone else are interested... put them on in June and I really doubt they have more than 1000 miles on them... I don't know if you need LCA per se, I think theyre more for camber adjustment in the rear, I could be wrong though...

I had them for about 10,xxx miles when i put them on until now 27,xxx miles. (17k) I liked them, it's just that everyone I know is going low/coilovers

Only reason to get rear control arms is if you slam your car and want to fix the negative camber or if you're trying to fit something super aggressive which requires more camber. My car is pretty low right now and the camber isn't that bad

There is a section for this and you will need a vendor account... probably want to do that before you get banned...

Might have been Feal coilovers, that I am speaking about not sure. But I was browsing the "bc coilover review" thread... Maybe cannot remember exactly

Oh, alright. I figure i'll try without rear control arms to see how it turns out.

Even with my H&R springs I needed the rear LCAs. I was almost at -3 degrees camber. Everyone should be prepared to buy a whole slew of suspension parts if you want to car to handle better or lower it by a de ent amount. I learned the hard way piece by piece. LOL

I am on the eibach pro-kit, I don't really notice anything(but rode better than my 2g dsm.) The coilovers will just be fun.

When I had my old wheels and I lowered the car, it was rubbing on the inside. 17x8 +43 on 225/45/17 or something like that. You'll want the LCAs to undo the camber, since your specs are about the same. Besides, you wouldn't want to sink even more of your sunk wheels at the moment.

Like kpSTi, I did it the hard way, and had to pay for an alignment each and every time. Not to mention the headaches of taking the same bolts off 3-4 times (these bolts are a pain)

I'll have to try myself haha... I have "lifetime" alignment from Firestone.. IIRC it was about $160
