My Ride: e46 330xi
Rear Camber suggestions?

Hey all,

So I have a 2001 330xi with some very wide rears (19x9.5 et20) and I am looking to go with some negative camber. I have pulled/rolled the rear fenders and the car only rubs with people sitting in the back of the car. So I'm looking into adjusting the rear camber. I know I must order some rear control arms but does anyone have a suggested brand? Also, is there a DIY thread for install on here?

Any advice is appreciated

I think you can get up to 2 or 3 degrees of neg camber by simply adjusting the camber cams. How much camber do you currently have?

To tell you the truth I'm not sure how much camber I have or how to measure it. I have H&R coilovers but other than that my suspension is completely stock

Well, short of taking it in for an alignment, you could maybe take some pics and that may show a general idea where you are going by the angle.

Where'd you order them from? I need to get my hands on some. I can't drive with people in the back seat :/
