Occasionally a hard-core autocrosser running -3.5 degrees in front wants -2.5 in the back, or they want to adjust camber easily for different tires and track conditions, so they get the adjustable rear control arms. If you lower the car a lot, you might need after market control arms to reduce the negative camber.
Thanks for all the info!! how do you adjust the front tho? i thought you needed plates to do anything in the front?
