If I got camber bolts(for the rear) could I make them add positive camber instead of negative? To make it more flush its a little to sunken in for my tastes. If so could someone link me to some bolts, the ones I have found are all for the front only. Do they even make camber bolts for the rears?

Thanks. I'm not to worried about the address, no one in their right mind would pay the million dollars it cost to send something into Canada.

Yea I was afraid I might need LCA's or that whiteline kit. I was really hoping for camber bolts since there like 25 bucks lol. Might get spacers but dont want to press in new studs.... Especially in the rear. Also the whiteline kit only offers .75 degrees of camber adjustment which is very minimal.

Studs in the rear arnt that bad. Bolts do nothing though. There was a used set of lower Controle arms being sold on here somewhere a little while ago.

The problem is if I were to run spacers I would only want to run them in the rear. The front wheels are much more flush than the rears. I know that, that is a bad idea on subarus kind of like running a staggered set up.

Staggered offsets are fine Brembo brake guys run 10+mm spacers up front just to clear the brakes. I have a friend running 18x9.5 +7 18x10 +12 without diff/trans issues. I wouldn't recommend it but running different size wheels can be done.

Staggered offsets shouldn't be a problem.

I'm thinking the 5mm spacers with the plate and extended studs? Forget the company, but they are the "go to" for the subaru crowd.

You don't need extended studs for 5mm

It's recommended depending on your lugs, its a H&R kit that comes with extended studs. If they came with the kit I would use them.

You could get away without using extended studs for a 5mm spacer. That would be a quick install. But you wouldn't notice anything unless you went 10mm and then you would have to use the extended studs for sure. Still a pretty easy job IMO.

Preza, not unless you pay for the shipping costs via UPS Ground. I can get a semi-good deal through UPS. PM me and we can chat.

How many mm clearance you looking for? Did you measure the tire to fender clearance? Hub/lug centric spacers would be ideal but I doubt your looking for 15+mm space. I think on OEM studs you can get away with 8mm but im not really sure on that.

Yea a 10mm spacer would be ideal but a 8mm would be good too. Especially since 2mm isnt really noticeable unless your up in the wheel well taking measurements.
