The camber cures fix the camber, but they don't fix the geometry issues after lowering. The relocated uppers fix both, they're less money to buy, but more to have welded in.

I plan on bagging mine in a couple years as well and the relocated uppers can be used after changing up, the camber control uppers can't be.

Now that I'm lowered, I'm trying to get the suspension geometry back into check.
just bag it! nfamus kits pretty nice

It'll get bagged eventually, but I'm using the MMW front end and the NFamus rear kit. The MMW front kit is a work of art, but it's also $400 more once fully optioned out. I won't have to get the entire kit though, I'll already have the upper mounts and I'm going to flip my tie rods instead of using heim joints and that'll already be done. In fact, I may do that this weekend. I've been putting it off because I want to wait and do the uppers and tie rod flip at the same time so that I only have to get it aligned once.

Thanks. No notch yet. I have it but it's at my dads shop, also along with the plasma cutter and welder. Still trying to decide if I want to do the super c instead.

285/50s if you were referring to mine ha. I see you have a 06+ model? What did you need to do to get yours aligned back to specs?
