Rear adjustable camber kit for m3 which one to get for achieving -4 or -5 ??

I am doing an aggressive wheel built and i will probably need to run 2 or 3 degree more negative camber compared the OEM camber when car is lowered very low ... i have no clue which ones to get.. will these ebay arms would do the job ???

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ADJUSTABLE-R...its=Make%3ABMW

Thanks
-Mike

I don't have any experience with those eBay type arms, but I'd look into the Rogue Engineering Rear Toe Arms (http://www.rogueengineering.com/rogu...RM/E9X_TA.html) and Rear Camber Links (http://www.rogueengineering.com/rogu...E_E9X_CAM.html). There are several of us on here running them.

After exchanging text messages with member GabeS he suggested me to save money and go with 100$ ebay arms. He's using them for drift and they do the job so might avoid paying 400$+ for rear arms

Can you alter the wheel specs? I have all of the rogue arms and so far so good. I don't think the eBay arms have spherical bearings like the m3 and rogue arms. Definite downgrade imo.

With the rogue arms you can effectively increase and decrease the wheel base to eliminate rubbing while running less camber.

That's not to be proud of either if it makes the car less effective at being a car.

Especially when you force a 255 mm-wide tire on an 11"-wide wheel

18x12 +6 will need atleast -7 to clear the quarter without a fender pull depending on your height.
