    Did not know that, but looks like you use bushings instead.

    not to mention it's a relatively major undertaking removing the arm and pressing out/in bushings- not like swapping out a bolt on a rear strut

    the camber would have to be really out of whack for me to consider those bushings, and even then there is a likely root cause that should be looked at first (bent arm or the like)

    Big Sky,

    I did my alignment the other day and I got:
    FL: -1.7
    FR: -1.7
    RL: -1.8
    RR: -1.2
    0 toe all around.

    .6* cross camber bugs me, but I only use this mainly as a DD.

    Do you recommend me leaving it as is or should I replace the rear LCAs?

    nice job w/ the front for the rear, I'd probably leave it be, if it really bugs you I'd do camber bolts in the rear- a 1/2 degree isn't worth swapping out lateral links imo

    Thanks for your help.

    Camber bolts for rear? How does that work for 13' models?

    doesn't work for 13's (or 08-12's either)- in that case definitely leave it as is

    Hello,

    I drive a 2013 WRX wagon with koni yellows and rce blacks. Do you have any recommendations on improving the #'s? Whiteline Rear Adjustable Control Arms? The car is a DD, Thanks

    the cross camber in the rear isn't enough to warrant control arms imo

    I'd say for a daily driver the alignment looks pretty good, all of your toe crosses are good and you have enough camber up front to still carve some decent corners- if you want a little more performance I know the 11+'s can eek out more neg camber up front- in the -1.5+ range from what I've seen

    other than that I'd leave it

    Wouldn't it be ideal to have the camber really close to each other, as opposed to -1.13 and -.87 for the front? Just curious.

    I would assume those numbers are a little too far part. Just something that crosses my eyes.

    Yes, same with the rear camber. Although on the 3rd gens you can't get much change in the rear camber...although I would think it would be closer than it is. In the fronts like big sky said you should be able to get -1.5ish (I got -1.2 left and right).

    for a daily driver a couple tenths of cross camber isn't a biggy; a tenth cross is nice, zero even better, but most shops aren't going to put the time into getting that close and again it's nothing that is going to be overtly noticeable
