Hello all,
 
Got a BE9 Gen 3 running BC Reds all round with camber tops. The rear is okay as they're maxed out lowness which gives it some natural camber. However the fronts are nowhere near where I wan't it even with the tops cambered out.
 
Was just wondering how much the actual factory bottom-bolts allow for change? If not much, whats the best way to go. I've obviously seen the Whiteline ones but I can't seem to notice a massive difference online from their listings. Are there any other options apart from custom arms and crap?
 
DISCLAIMER: I do not care about the quality of the ride/what you think of this choice as the car is setup for stance. I'd talk to a few Jap bois if I spoke their language as they have their Gen 3 stance game on point so I know it can be done proper.
 
Thanks.

Stance is stupid

buttttttttttttttttttttttttttt factory bolts have fork all adjustment. Whiteline bolts do 1.5+-.

Hot boi jap blokes are hopefully using adjustable lower control arms but they could well doing dumb shit like ovaling the lower strut mounts. Please dont do that

Stance is my choice, doesn't matter where I post someone has to give me their opinion on it, which isn't needed. End of story.

 

I have ordered the Whiteline bolts as I got them dirt cheap through work. I'll play around with that plus look into the LCAs. Didn't really know if any companies made them for Gen3s.

 

Thank you for your advice.

LCA are the same from 

Gen 1, gen 2, gen 3,
GC,GD,GF,GG
SF,SG

GD LCA are 10mm wider than your current arms so theres some more negative camber for not much considering NA shitters are plentiful at the wreckers

I use H&R Triple C camber bolts in mine - they have a thicker shaft than the Whiteline's (and other brands) and don't need those stupid tags to be pointing a certain way to 'lock' them.

Dont you have to mod the front part of the GD control arm as its wider than the gen 3 stuff, where as you said the rear larger bush is the same.

Rebush or grind down the stock bush. Arm itself is the same

These are for the rear, he wants extra neg camber at the front.

I am talking about the front, but I'll be looking into the rears in future too.

I have the whiteline arm kit on my outback, does the job pretty good
