Camber adjustment options, FRS/BRZ.

Looking for a good experienced opinion on what you would consider the best options for parts to allow camber adjustments on my car (Scion FRS). Stock there is no adjustment at all.

In case you haven't been under one yet, it's macpherson strut up front and multi link in the rear. The front suspension is almost identical to a 2008ish WRX and the rear is apparently quite similar to a 2008ish STI.

Available parts for the front are smaller upper bolts, ovalized bolts or camber plates (almost all require coilovers). Some coilovers are also shipping with slotted upper knuckle holes.

Available parts for the rear are adjustable lower control arms, adjustable upper control arms and offset bushings for the upper control arm. The LCA can cause toe issues if altering camber too much (factory toe adjustment range isn't huge), but they're adjustable easily on the car. Any UCA's require pulling the upper balljoint out of the knuckle to adjust them, and the offset bushings just need to loosened, rotated then re-tightened.

I don't need an extreme adjustment range, just want a bit more camber than stock.

I'm leaning towards the ovalized bolts (or slotting the stock struts) for the front and the offset bushings for the rear since that's a substantial amount of savings but don't want to pick a terrible solution either.

Thoughts on what you would consider the best options? I'm open to other suggestions as well!

Re: Camber adjustment options, FRS/BRZ.

I have seen many of the combinations you have mentioned in your question.

To make the correct recommendation for your application, give me a call so we can discuss your goals, what you are doing with the car, wheel options you want to have ect.

Thanks Scott
