My car is lowered and the best Camber I can get with the stock components is -2.3°. I'm trying to get it back in a -1.5 to -1.8 range since this is a street car.

Do I need both the aftermarket camber rods and toe rods?

Which brand would be the most affordable and not compromise safety or durability?

James is a good guy.

Why do you recommend SPL over other brands? Any particular reason?

You can’t go wrong with SPL product, super easy to use light weight and strong. If you can afford it pick up the rear toe, and lockout bolts then rest reassured that it will not deviate.

That’s interesting, how much are you lowered?

I’m dropped about 1” on Swift SpecR springs and have no trouble getting rear camber set to 1.5 to 1.8 which I’ve found is the sweet spot for most tracks. SPL makes great parts for sure, but I always considered them to be an upgrade of strength, not adjustability.

Im pretty sure I'm only lowered about an inch. Im on KW V3 coilovers so not exactly sure the exact drop after it was installed. But it is very mild.

Seems like every car is unique when it comes to max adjustment-at least that's what I was told by a GTR tech ages ago.

So what you're saying is the SPL camber arms won't get me any more adjustment than the stock arms?

I’m sure the SPL arms would have more adjustment, however I would expect the factory arms to get you into the range you’re looking for. There can’t be too much disparity between GT-R’s unless he means that it varied from year to year. My car is a CBA if that helps...

Just pull iff the diffuser and check it out. It only takes 20-30 mins to change the camber. If you don’t have toe plates and a camber gauge then it will be tough to dial in the alignment but you could at peast drive it to a shop for that after you verify the camber is in range.

The SPL camber links will give you all the adjustment you want.  On my 09 with Eibach springs I have mine adjusted to 0 camber for drag racing.  I did have to get the toe links also to make everything work.

Yeah I wish I had more info as to why -2.3 is the best they could do in the rear but it was an extremely reputable shop with their own road course race GTR. They said they tried their best and that was the most adjustment they had towards more positive numbers.

At what point do you begin to need the toe links when making camber adjustments in the rear?
