What are your guys' thoughts? I track the car (newbie) maybe 1-2 per year max but its mostly commuting to and from work (20 miles city + highway each way) .

Car is going in for Sport Lines next week and I'm wondering if I really need the camber arms. Thanks.

I’m in a similar situation. Lowered on D2. How much does it cost to get the rear camber arms installed or how difficult is it?

I’m not rubbing on the rear currently so will the arms cause me to start rubbing?

You can maybe get away without them on the pro kit. I'd 100% get rear camber arms if you're going sport line

I think it depends on your wheel/tire set-up and goals for the car. I too have the +42 CEs but went Spoon Springs & Eibach adj RCAs with 255/40 DWS06s. Upon install I was -1.9 right and -1.5 left. As I'm just using it for street driving we tried -1.5 for both but I rubbed. After further experimenting we settled on -2.5 to prevent rubbing with the taller tire. Your Sportlines will probably put you in the -2+ range after install. I recall you are on a 265/35 so you're probably ok without them assuming you don't care about the ability to adjust if needed. They are pretty simple to install, should you decide you want them later, just time consuming since it's tight in there.
