R170 Camber Adjustment

If you are going to lower your car and adjust camber, there are two popular options in west coast USA/Hawaii KMAC and MB-Arts.

If you go with KMAC hopefully all you need is .5 degrees of correction because you can't adjust them more than that. Also expect a lot of time/money or combination of both to replace the control arm bushings. prices are pretty expensive as well, 700 US dollars for front and rear bushings. You can expect them to squeak after 2 months. Oh yeah KMAC's company policy also doesn't do returns only exchanges.

MB arts offers an easier rear camber arm adjustment unfortunately its only for the rear camber. and it is about 310 for the arms.

I did the rear adjustable arms for $250 a couple of years ago, they were custom made from a former site sponsor. Very simple to install and they work great.

I believe the MB Arts arms are similar to the TVT ones you used?
