Will I need adjustable camber arms?

I have PSS10s on the way, I don't plan on slamming the car by anymeans. I bought them to tighten up the car a bit and because the stock suspension has 109K. I drive the car on the street 90% of the time.

I dont want to kill my tires with an un-needed aggressive setup only to be used on the street. So will I need camber arms if I come down maybe an inch front and rear or will stock adjustability not be enough?

Thanks

I don't think so. I use AST4100 and it's lower than 1 inch from stock. Any good alignment shop should be able to align it correctly for street use.

Stock should be enough. But some camber arms would still be nice.

Thanks for the info guys, I guess I'll hold off if it isnt a needed expense right now. I just didnt want to murder my tires, I dont need -3 on the street or stupid amounts of toe.

No, you will not need the adj rear camber arms. I ran the OEM arms when I put my PSS9s on the car and did not have any issues at all.

I will say that when I installed the TMS Rod-End Rear Camber Arms on my car that I noticed the rear end gave more feedback and had less play but that is to be expected when going from a gel filled bushing to a pivot bearing. I love the things but they are not needed for the street.

PS: the driver's side bolt by the diff is a pain to install but worth it.
