Oh sweeet baby jesus, mad props homii the Real Best Stance.....
goddamn man!! reppin 1GS hard as f**k!

thanks for the props!! progress might slow down a bit but the fitment is coming!
clean cut..... everything is on point...
can't wait man...going to kill it

MOARRRR pictures! This thing is a beast
thanks fam! i actually dont like it too much right now! i dont like to see tire thread but since i know its a work in progress it makes me love it more.. if that makes any sense!
some more motivation
okay so i swapped out the 1.5 inch 35mm RCAs to some smaller 1.25 inch 35mm RCAs. although it doesnt seem like the quarter inch actually allowed me to clear tire thread under the fender which is my biggest pet peeve. i would say the front is good enough until i come up with some front UCAs. the SPC ones allow 2 degrees of movement both ways from stock and i think it might be enough to allow me to tuck some sidewall. also remember my camber adjustments are at their minimal setting so i can pull the bottoms out about 6 degrees if need be. lets see where this shit goes from here!
and my new wallpaper until i get the fronts perfect!
putting in some good work. what are your rear camber specs? the rca swaps don't seam to be having a huge affect on the fitment, most likely because they are kicking out the bottom vs pulling in the top. i think the logical process is to get the adjustable ucas to get the fitment where you want it, then use the stock eccentic bolts/rcas/camber rcas to match the camber front and rear. something tells me that the night pager rcas will give you the desired look in combination with the ucas.
Gs is sittin nice. Later.
ooh i forgot. i am at -8 in the rear.
Coming along great :)
think about your pivot points. one is the lbj, the other is the bj on the uca.
by spacing out the lbj (via camber rca) you are also pushing the spindle outwards, which is why you are getting more poke even though you are achieveing the camber you are looking for.
if you adjust from the top pivot point (negative camber on the adjustable uca) you will be pulling the top of the spindle in, which will result in better fitment. i'm not exactly sure why you are saying that the new uca will shift the top of your wheel outwards, but if they are not able to adjusted to a length shorter than the oem uca then they are pretty much worthless.
the reason i say that you could have got away with the night pager rca's is because you are pretty much already there as far as camber spec, you just need to suck everything in to get the fitment right. if you keep the studio rcas and adjust the fitment via adjustable ucas you will end up with a lot more camber up front than out back (not a good look imo). since you said you are already at the minimum camber setting on the eccentric bolt there will be no fixing this. by shortnening both the uca (adjustable) and replacing the offset rca you will be pulling the spindle inward.

that you were gonna make an appearance at wekfest..........
your offset should never be higher than your shoe size
I love your build so much I went out and bought a 1gs last week
