The inner side of my rear tires are worning out pretty quickly.. i am now thinking of getting adjustable rear lower control arm. So i can dial out the negative camber at the back..

However, it is very expensive, 299US a pair :( do you guys think i should just get the less expensive rear camber kit (219US) from turnermotorsport instead? anyone have experience with any of these kits??

The adjustable lower arms is the only way to go if you have an E36. I have a set from Ground Control and they are very nice! It will give you more adjustment and a soild rear suspension. Factory lower rear arm are very weak compare to a soild metal bar setup.

I got them directly from Ground Control. They list from $299 USD but I got a deal because of a pricing mixed up. Landed it and everything, it was close to $500 CAD. It should of cost a lot more. :)

The stock ones is like $130 CAD EACH!!! Unlike the others, (AA, Rogue, and BMP) it is NOT a do it yourself job. You have to remove the rear hub bushing with an special tool. Motoroinx have a set of their own prototype arms. Ask Dave about it.

Hey M52TU Alpina

Check this out.

it's the adjustable rear control arm from Rogue Engineering.
The price is $259- US. But I think you should be able to talk to them and see if they can do anything to the price.

If you want to buy RE's control arm. I want to buy their flywheel, too. (soon...)
want to buy together and see if we can get a better deal?

take care,
