Lets say I put the springs on and roll the fenders. I need camber plate for the front to get the -2 up front and what would I need to do to the rear? Or would that even work.

What year is your car? I'm on the nasioc app.

If it's pre-08, get 2 sets of whiteline camber bolts. Those are good for another 1.5 degrees of camber and will really come in handy.

I have an '08 Sti. I don't have to use these springs I was just curious if there were multiple options.

You can fit them on your GR with little effort. Run a 235/40 like I did. Roll all corners and -2 camber in front and rear. You will need to get some Whiteline rear camber bushings to get the rears fully tucked. Here is mine with 18x9.75 20's. Not a GR, but we have the same amount of room.

Roll all four corners and pull in rear and front because I like to take turns sharp sometimes.
The pull isn't crazy though.

Nice, Looks awesome. I love the 530's. I am looking to put that same size on my Saab 9-2x Aero. I have Epic Engineering Lowering Springs. You said you had to slightly roll the rears to run the 235/40R17 Tires. I want to run that same tire size and I think your springs are a little lower then mine. I am hopeing to get away with not rolling my rear fenders. If I have to, is it difficult to roll fenders? Thanks and love the silver with gold.

Think I've decided on the 530's in a 18x8.75 +35 with 235/40 tires. I think I might go gold with the WRB paint job but part of me wants to powdercoat them tennis ball yellow haha.

I assume you will have to roll your fenders just a bit. You can get negative camber for the rear if you have camber bolts which would help (I don't have camber bolts). I took a wooden bat and a heat gun to the fenders for the roll, but it isn't something I'd recommend. But for the roll I needed, it did the job. It's not difficult, just take your sweet time.
