Lots of lowering spring threads. There both good. Depends how low you want to go.

I'm a noob too but I was told as a general rule of thumb. You'll want camber arms if you're lowering more than 1.5. Idk if you need front and rear, if someone could back me up and confirm, thanks.

I'm lowered 1.5 on corksport springs and I need the rear camber arms. My rear camber is 2.7 which is more than enough to wear out the inside of the tires. Plus with the deal warlord is getting us the arms for why not get them to be safe. Front camber plates don't seem to be necessary unless you are fine tuning for the track.

Control arm is different than camber arm. The camber arm allows you to adjust the camber on the rear wheels. Control arm is basically what holds the wheel and suspension to the car.

Yes you need control arms

Please spend more time searching instead of creating a thread

if im running the stock rims and tires do i still need to adjust camber

It doesn't matter what tires or rims. Once you get it lowered the rear camber will need to be adjusted. These cars already come with negative factory
camber. When you lower the car it puts more camber on suspension.




Okay thank you do i need that?

What the control arm? No.

Just get the rear camber arms and you will be fine.

Personally I think the drop on the drop from the CS springs looks perfect, also they seem to do a fair bit of research when making products, so I'll probably buy them once I move somewhere without a steep ass driveway.
