Thanks, and correct. It has been changed since then but at the time of those photos that's what it was.

I am running rpf1 17x9 +35 on 245/40/17 mpss. I am seeing that a couple of the guys here have that set up and it works fine with the 1" drop from the trd lowering springs.

Just to confirm before i make the purchase are the camber bolts necessary for the fitment ? Or was that installed because you wanted that slight tuck in for the wheels?

Thanks!
Autox/track is why I had them in. I wanted closer to -3 degree of camber in the front but without top-hats you can get that. The camber was bringing the wheel/tires closer to the shock/spring. No the bolts are not necessary for the fitment. The tops of the tires/wheel might poke a little more tho.

Yeah they do poke a bit, I had the wheels on stock for a bit before getting the HSDs. But I can live with that if I can get into my garage haha.

Thanks for the confirmation dude.

I've tracked with 245/40/17 on RPF1 17x9 +35 and got zero rubbing at all.

Pic below shows the wheel/coilover under heavy compression.
