Itís just cheaper, way cheaper, especially if you can use same Subaru parts of other platforms ahahah

Yeah I know. I had always heard packaging being tight as a rumor. Cost above all is probably the primary.

It can and probably is a bit of both. Each of these things does not exist in isolation from the other.

They certainly weren't going to design an all new suspension architecture for the BRZ/86...the existing Subaru design was the only way (tweaked obviously for the specific car).

You mean they aren't hand built to individual specifications by master craftsmen?

I did the upgrade some people mention in the thread. 2019 low mileage dampers and whiteline lowering springs, and camber bolts up front. It made the car more compliant over harsh bumps, even though it was lowered. Balance on track is way more neutral than the oversteer bonanza that was the original set-up. I still fry my tyre walls, but at least slightly less so. The alignment made and balance change was great, could attack much harder into the corners, and it feels more agile aswell.

Would ideally want less camber at the rear, but i dont have any adjustability there, at least not for now.

The rear camber won't mater much. adjustability in the rear is very simple and cheap to add when rdy.
