Default Camber Plates and Camber Bolts Stock and Aftermarket

So I have searched and have not found the answer needed as I can find multitudes of information regarding Camber plates, camber bolts, but not both together.

I have a 2005 wrx that I have purchased coil overs for, tein flex z if that helps. They come with front camber plates. I am looking at cusco rear camber plates but need to confirm fitment to tein coil overs.

The car currently has H&R camber bolts front and rear, in the lower position up front and in the upper position in the rear (what ever is bolded in red on the camber FAQ) and these were done so that my right rear could get under 2* neg camber (running -1.5 all the way around) Camber bolts were much cheaper than lca s in the rear. Cuscos are baller money and megans bother me.

So what do I do?

A: Revert to stock non eccentric bolts and keep stock camber bolt up front with front rear camber plates?

B: Keep all bolts including stock Camber Bolts with H&R Camber Bolts with front rear camber plates?

C: Remove all Camber bolts and go to just regular bolts all the way around with front rear camber plates.

C might actually be a dumb idea *flamesuiton* (dont know thats why Im asking) but it would take some guestimation out of alignments (I dont know if camber plates can adjust that much camber though)

Thanks for any help.

What exactly are you trying to do?
What final camber numbers are you trying to get?
Do the coil overs come pre-slotted?

Honestly just trying to set up my car with the least amount of fuss. The H&R camber bolts are a pain in the rear to get just right and Im not in love with them (they were a needed evil to get my rear suspension under -2* camber in the rear), they adjust horridly. Im wanting -1.5* all the way around.

Im wanting something that handles well (not dumping the car on its nuts or trying to fit wide tires on it either 2004 sti bbs wheels wrapped in stock 225/45/17s) lowered 1" max. Teins come with front camber plates and the upper hole is slotted so that means I need that front top camber bolt which Im fine with and that eliminates option c all together. Now do I keep the H&Rs or not.

Well you can try to get the numbers you want without the H&R bolts. You can give the alignment tech the camber bolts on the side in case the numbers can't be reached without them.

Basically tell the guy what you want and to try and get there without using the H&R bolts, but if needed only, use the bolts to get there.

My guess is you don't need them to get to -1.5 all around.

My suggestion would be to try and get -1.75 up front and -1.0 to -1.25 in the rear. Zero toe all around. AND if the adjustable top hats have a caster adjustment, tell them to max it out positive.
