Good job!

I was looking at the SPC vs the Whiteline bolts and noticed that the pictures on the Whiteline website show two tabbed washers while the SPCs show only one. I imagine the upper 16mm bolt will only require one washer as only the one side of the strut is has a 16mm hole, correct? Are two washers required for the lower 14mm bolt to make sure the bolt doesn't sit at an angle?

As far as I know SPC is the only manufacturer of camber bolts and all other sellers (Whiteline included) just rebrand SPC bolts.
I have SPC 81280 in the top hole and SPC 81260 in the bottom hole and both came with a single tabbed washer per bolt.

Im fairly novice regarding camber adjustment, but a few times it was "hinted" at camber bolts not being suitable for stuff other than DD, which gives me pause.

For my use case I want to keep the stock shocks, and go STI lowered springs for this car instead of going with coils like I did in the 2017. Since I do spirited canyon driving, safety and reliability are crucial to me.

With that in mind, what would be the best route for camber adjustment in the front and rear assuming itll be thrashed? Not looking to go over -2 deg.

Camber bolts? LCAs? Adjustable bushing kits? Also, what brands are known to have long-term reliability?

Simplest way to add camber

The SSC setup requires camber bolts, and they are used with sticky tires. Its not a problem if installed correctly.

When you put the thinner bolt in the upper whole it doesn't wiggle loose over time? I'm thinking I'll use blue Loctite on it.

So there's no "stock" way to set front camber? Are new cars aligned at the factory or at the dealer? Do they just have enough play when loose in the stock configuration that they can make the 1/4 or whatever adjustment needed to be set to factory camber spec?

Loctite won't help with slipping. Cammed camber bolts come with a tabbed washer, both together should prevent slipping, especially when torqued to spec; but most people also don't experience slipping with OEM crash bolts (or when using bottom bolts in the top hole which is basically the same).

While it isn't enough for theorical max performance on track, it gives great thread temperature readings on the pyro to prevent tire chunking on most tracks. It is also 10x more reliable than aftermarket camber plates.
This is exactly what I was just told by a 1st Gen guy who has been tracking his for almost a Decade now(damn time fly's). He said it's better(for track use) to adjust it exactly as you said. Then the details got way too technical lol. He did a fantastic job explaining it tho.
