Just installed my SPC camber arms and toe bolts in the rear, easy install, very good instructions to follow. the only thing missing was to remove the brackets holding the sway bar in place, other than that, not much to complain about.

I am considering doing this install myself within the coming weeks. Here are a few questions that the tuturial didn't address:

1) I am guessing you need to support the bottom of the rear spring cup / mount with a hydraulic jack, remove the toe bolt, then let the spring cup down slowly?

2) Is it safe to say that having an air impact wrench at my disposal will make this job much, much, much easier?

3) In the last picture of the tutorial the bolt head is nowhere need concentric with the round flatwasher. Is this the desired end result?

4) If I don't smear dirt and grease on my hands and arms will my girlfriend still love me and cook me dinner?

1. Yes

2. Air impact wrenches make everything better.

3. Not sure exactly what you are saying here.

4. If she doesn't make you a sammich while you are working, ditch her and get another one.

Has anyone watched the video posted above? They dremeled out equal sections to the left and right of the hole. I thought you were supposed to make the template flush with the outer edge of the hole and carve so that the hole is elongated toward the center of the car. Anyone else carve out equally on both sides of the hole? Did they do it differently because it was a G35? Overall, the video is very helpful.

Just installed mine tonight. This write up helped a ton. That dremel 115 bit is key. Took me maybe 2-3 mins to cut per side. I picked one up at lowes for $6. Never would have known about that is it wasn't for the write up.

I used that bit when I did mine a couple weeks ago, and must've done something stupid, like I normally do. I bent the freakin shaft of the bit about 95% through the project. Filed the rest. I would suggest getting the tungsten carbide like BriGuyMax said. That should work even better than the bit me and you found. Hope that helps
