Rear adj. control arm recommendations?

Ive been doing a lot of research and still very undecided. I was going to go with ksports, but there on back order. I need something with a lot of adjustability (neg degree). I noticed alot of manufacturers dont list much in terms of adjustments.


What are you guys running ? Any recommendations?

I run UUC arms and have adjusted them to -5* without any problems. They are essentially the same as SPC arms but just with a chromoly center rods. Bimmerworld also makes an affordable set or steel arms that run about $180 if price is a concern.

Ive seen them, but I noticed SPC says -1/+3 for the adjustment... Does that mean total, or over stock?

I think its rated to reflect adjustment beyond stock adjustment.

They look pretty good. I've never seen them before but since they are designed to give the amount of adjment you need i would say get them and try them out.
