Default Installing V8 Jdm Lateral links on my wagon. Do I need Camber Bolts?

I'm in the process of replacing my lateral links with V8 Jdm links. The links look identical to the factory ones but word on the street is they're longer. Will I need camber bolts to correct the alignment?

I forgot to mention that these are STi lateral links but they have the right mounts for wrx style endlinks. I'll be running perrin endlinks with these. Word on the street is they're 8mm longer then my stock lateral links so I'm wondering about fitment, alignment etc.

Might think this though more. Read this:

not sure what the pop-out distance is, but similar thing could happen. Also, not sure what stage-4 means in your profile, but if that's hp-mods, I'd want all the axle in the differential

hope that helps

Hmmm, now I'm a little worried, have "STi" adjustable lat. links but had them for over 6 months now with a couple of track days, no ill effects, running -1.6 rear camber and links at shortest length. Gotta go and measure my rear track with.

According to that post the popout distance was 15mm. So basically I should be fine. Stage 4 means I've got the basic stage 4 setup but with an APS S/R30. I make around 280-290 whp. I don't track the car and I was going to go for -1.6 camber on the front and rear with 0 toe. Right now my lateral links are bent and I got this set for only $140 shipped! These are not adjustable lat links, just stock V8 Jdm STi replacements. I didin't know that the jdm v8 sti had wrx style mounts.
