Hi NASIOC

Im in the process of doing my new rims set up and got a question. I got a "11 STI wheels are work xd9 18X10 +18 im planing on running 225/40 tires and im aware that i have to roll the rear fenders and run -3 -4 camber.So i got the cusco LCA to do the job. Question is concerning toe. Will i need toe link to bring the toe back to 0 with that kind of camber settings? Just wanted to know so i get everything ready and have it all done at once.

Thanks in advance guys

Have u considered a whiteline roll center kit (bump steer). Just might be the fix u need especially if u r lowered.

i think he's asking about the rears.

i wonder also if i should get the whiteline LCA or the cusco cause they have the arms also but not sure honestly how it will help in your situation going negative camber.

the roll center kit helps the front. i'm waiting for my coils and installing these also.

With that amount of camber you will definitely want to buy some rear toe arms.

You could try the Whiteline upper control arm bushings; PITA, but that way you get at least a degree or two of camber that doesn't effect your toe...allowing you to run less camber from the control arm.

At the end of the day you'd probably still need toe arms.

I am running 275's on the front without an issue. You will be fine as long as you aren't super slammed.

you wont have to run that much camber to make it work...and i doubt you'll have to roll much. I hardly rolled to fit a 18x9.5 +38 with 225/40/18. And im on a narrow body 2010 wrx, versus you having a widebody. My camber ended up being -1.8 front and -2.6 rear, i do have the cusco control arms though, but toe wasnt needed. I fit even wider wheels/tires on my car also! So you should be fine! Also depends how low you go, im slammed as far as i can go almost on coils
