You really need to do more research.

Why do you need "to camber" your car?

you do realize that for us to give you a proper answer, we need to know what your intended or desired results will be right? I guess not if you are 16, logic means nothing.

Yes "stanced" cars really stand out... You must not go to any meets because that's the cookie cutter wrx these days. I'll tell you to get that look requires much more than some "camber", "bro".


You obviously have no business trying to modify your car if you are asking the most basic of questions and bashing those trying to help.

Those trying to help? If you jump on me, you're not helping. You got no information to give me then don't bother posting on here. And I have been to meets and all the douche bag guys I know drive a wrx that mommy admins daddy paid for. And I ain't 16 kid so good try. You don't have the information I'm looking for then there is no point in posting an "answer", right? So please. If you just wanna get on my case about it you can just shut up cause its pointless haha you kids think you're cool. Ha

So with the (lack of) info the OP has given, here's an answer...

To "get cambered" you"ll need pillowball camber plates at all 4 corners. Stock top hats won't give you nearly the adjustability you'll need.

Camber arms?? Never heard of them.

Noone jumped on you kiddie boy, you jumped on the offensive. Read back through the thread an see who started calling names first.

If you want to get a good answer, we need to know your desired end result...but again, if you had half a brain you'd probably know that

Stock top hats offer 0 camber adjustment.

Tophats on these aren't adjustable, Camber is quite hard to achieve on the back, naturally it does a wee bit (I have around 3 deg) but any more will require getting camber arms made up or finding some but they are rare as hens teeth, well in my part of the world

Good point, he didn't specify that he wanted negative camber.
