    After market control arms?

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Are there any after market front and rear control arms for this car? Lowering no matter how slight will affect camber and tire wear. So before going down the springs/coilovers route, need to know if there are adjustable front and rear control arms for this car?

    The car being stock should have camber adjustment, its not a huge amount but some. If you buy lowering springs you should be fine, now if you want to slam it to the ground then your going to have a problem with camber. If you buy coilovers you can adjust for camber at the top of the coilover it self.

    You're certain of stock arms allowing for adjustments. Asking because not all cars allows camber adjustment stock. Infiniti being an example. I don't have the Stinger yet so I can't physically confirm for myself.

    The rear has camber adjustment. The front doesn't - at least not explicitly that I can tell.

    The adjustment is not going to come from the stock arms. Manufactures install camber bolts on the front struts. Its the two bolts that connect the hub or rotor to the strut, even my 2006 Nissan Altima had adjustable camber from the factory. If your not sure take your car to your mechanic and have him look at the bolts on the struts to see if they're adjustable.

    Your right I didn't look at the front of the car, I did find out that when the vehicle comes from the manufacture, they don't put camber bolts on the front of the car because of the cost pure vehicle. So again, you can buy camber bolts if you want to lower your car but if you slam it then the bolts won't work.
