ok so now i have a doubt i recently bought a kinetix full rear/front camber kit ( http://www.kinetixracing.com/kinetix...n_package.aspx ) and i took it for install but the guys of the workshop told me that the rear ones, wouldnt fit because the oem ones and spc's are curved, the kinetix ones are straight, why is it like that? They told me that if they install them, they would interfere with the link kit, just wanted to see if something is wrong, or if it's not being properly installed or something, or if there are installation instructions for them. My car is bone stock in terms of suspension, the reason to install this is because i took it to align and it doesnt gets in parameters, so i would need these. thanks in advance

Jes your best bet is to call Kinetix to ask them and make sure to include details about which Z you have etc. GL

nevermind, i already installed them and they fit fine, only thing that i dont know if it's normal is that my car is a little more stiffer in the back now, but that's not a problem at all, the REAL problem is that i can't get my car to align properly, im gonna create a post on suspension area to gather info about that...

Changed the primitive pinch nut for castle nut and drilled for cotter pin.....so much easier to change {the pinch nut was stiff to turn}

I also bent the 1 inch wrench to get in the wheel arch easier.

I'm still on factory suspension and when I installed mine, I had to take off the struts. That area was a little tight, I couldn't fit in a rachet and socket in but a regular straight 6 point wrench worked just fine. Getting to the bolt wasn't an issue for me but the bolt itself was too long to pull out, it was hitting the spring.

When installing these arms, should you tighten the two bolts into the engine bay while you are pushing up the control arm as high as it goes? Thought that's what you had to do with the SPC arms

2 years now since i installed mine. Around 30k miles, still going strong, had an accident, pot holes everywhere, and the UCA's still going strong. Do i have to lube the bushings on a basis or is it just to lube on install and forget?

Installing mine today and the ball joint screw is almost impossible tighten. Do I have a bad nut or is it supposed to be that way. I'm afraid of cross-threading it. Please advise....I also had to change the bushing rods for the factory bolts b/c they would not fit...weird
