Lower Control Arms

It's time for me to get some more rear camber, so I'm looking for a set of adjustable lower control arms.

Anybody got a set they're willing to sell?

Else where does one buy them, and what brands are best?

Not sure which is best, but this should be a good starting point:
http://www.ft86speedfactory.com/susp...l-arms-98.html

...and more specifically:
http://www.ft86speedfactory.com/whit...2013-ft86.html

Not sure if you'd be able to find local, the guys here would probably simply end up ordering from FT86 anyway and then add a fat markup on the goods.
Pyro in Cape Town is a Whiteline agent so have a chat with Julian just to compare.

Thanks mate, much appreciated.

No luck locally, short of getting someone to build them, and phew, those FT86speedfactory prices are quite heavy!!

I've ordered from the US, from the same supplier where I got my spoiler back in 2013.
That transaction worked very well, but could have been risky (like this one...)
My spoiler landed here at R1444 all incl compared to R5500 locally.

Let's see how this transaction pans out.
I'll share more details when it arrives.

This is the set I have- SPC. I don't know if they are the best, but the build quality is top notch, they are very beefy camber arms that support adjustable toe and camber. Installation was a breeze, fitment perfect and they do the job.

One thing you need to watch for is knowing how much camber you want to run. Make sure the camber arms you get support the amopunt of camber you want to add.
