Introduction

Since we compete in AutoX with our BRZ, we wanted more camber adjustment option in the rear wheels for our car. These SPC rear lower control arms, give us just that. These arms give us the camber we need or less camber that we need. This part is definitely a must after lowering the car.

  1. The BRZ Platform has camber adjustability done through the rear lower control arm. With the SPC rear lower control arms, more camber can be obtained.

    • For this write-up, we will not be installing it, as we will be installing an adjustable arm in the future.

    • Although the arm is slightly heavier than the stock arm, it is definitely more rigid and the extra camber adjustments makes up for a small weight addition.

Conclusion

The install of the rear lower control arms will definitely change the rear alignment. It is now time to get an alignment and get that rear end straightened out.
