Default newb question on camber kits for 02 wrx

my rear camber and toe are all out of wack due to an accident i had gotten into a while back. what are my options in rear camber kits and if any that also adjust toe past factory settings. i dont wanna run camber bolts cuz they seem a little too cheap.
what brands and makers make adjustable rear camber for 02 wrxs?

I would imagine things are bent or broken if alignment is out of spec with OEM parts. There is no rear camber adjustment, so your only options with stock suspension are $30 bolts, or 400+ on whiteline/msi top hats. You can also get adjustable rear lateral links.

In terms of toe adjustment....not sure why youd want rear toe adjustment on a street car, on our cars you want 0 toe all around.

Adjustable lateral links will let you adjust camber and toe. I don't know if the Whiteline pieces are any good, but here is a link: http://www.jscspeed.com/catalog/Whit...TI-1821-1.html

Good idea to figure out what is bent too, as it may need to be fixed rather than just masking the issue.

For the love of all that is holy man...you need to fix what is broken, not perform a ghetto fabulous fix. If you are smart enough to know the reasons to adjust toe and camber for performance, then you are smart enough to know what you are doing is a knuckleheaded idea.

Chill out. He's giving you good advice. Get it realligned. Leave the ghetto fixes for the ricers.

what you don't seem to understand, is that there is NO STOCK CAMBER ADJUSTMENT in the rear.

if your alignment is out of spec, SOMETHING is bent or broken. You might not be able to see it, or don't quite know what it might look like, but something is bent or broken. there is no question about that.

The impression I got was the he knows the frame/sub-frame is bent and just wants a band aid solution to compensate for that. Sounds dicey but I guess there's a reason camber bolts are also called crash bolts.

Is it strange that as I scrolled down I read that in Ron Burgundy's voice as well? Even without seeing who made the response or your response?
