Default GR Rear Upper Control Arms

I'm looking to do rear upper control arms on my 2011 sti to pull in some camber from the top of the wheel. I know Racer X (~$550)makes them so I was going to order them but I also heard that BRZ rear upper control arms fit the GR chassis also. The brand P2M (who i have never heard of) makes them for the BRZ/FRSand they're cheaper than Racer X. If they both fit I would rather pickup the P2M (~$450).

Does anyone have any experience with these or maybe even other options that might be a better bang for your buck?

I don't mind getting the Racer X i just don't want to spend more money than I have to.

welp, I ordered the P2M ones after speaking to a couple friends about the situation. When they come in I will post the results so everyone else can be knowledgeable about this

interesting product, I've never see aftermarket upper control arms

What do you do with your car/why did you make the swap?

SPC makes adjustable lower control arms (# 67660) that are quite effective, and significantly cheaper than the competition - about $250 for a pair. I've got 25K trouble-free miles on mine.
Superpro is another brand I'd recommend.

I have very aggressive wheel specs. 18x10.5 et -15 front and +2 rear. The lower control arms are normally enough to be able to get the camber you need but when you hit a certain point of poke its pushing too much of the wheel out from the bottom, causing the tire to rub on the top. With the lower/upper control arm combo you are free to push/pull the bottom/top (respectively) of the wheel to dial in the camber exactly how you want, so the tire doesn't rub. These are seen more with the "stance" guys/girls rather than the "track" guys/girls
