Ontario, Canada, correct.

I emailed hardrace and they eventually got back and said they would be in stock later in January. I found this seller on eBay. Parts actually came direct from Taiwan and pretty quick.

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/HARDRACE-SPH...53.m1438.l2649

Because I wanted both the camber and toe arms, I emailed seller and he sent me invoice for both. Knowing that Hardrace said no stock, I asked for confirmation and he confirmed in stock. Paid it through Paypal and no issues. Once I paid, he did then go to warehouse to confirm stock. I wasn't holding my breath until they actually arrived, but I got a UPS number and all was good. Duties/fees were an additional $66CAD (I've been hit with far worse).

Hope that helps.

I can't wait to get mine in, drop the back end a bit (front has H&R sport springs on it) and then align.

Hard race arms, H&R Sport springs, spacers, rear lowered

Hi guys,

Here are some details on the setup (I had a hard time finding pics/specs, so hope this helps someone)
- Hardrace camber/toe arms on the rear
- H&R Spacers: 30mm rear, 25mm front
- Camber arm eccentric washer set so bolt is pushed out (gives adjustment down the road and leaves the arms alone)
- Toe eccentric washer set in the middle to allow for toe adjust but not touching the arms)
- H&R sport springs on the front (their specs say 1.2" to 1.5" drop)
- Winter 19" rims on it for now
- Front ride height (lower rim to fender) ~685mm
- Rear ride height (dropped with INPA) ~675mm (running board pretty much level)
- All rear joints are new, front joints and tie rods pretty close to same (done within last 6 months)

Rear alignment (not to BMW spec)
- Camber -1.3 and -1.3
- Toe 0.02deg and 0.02deg (total 0.04deg)

Front alignment (within spec)
- Camber -0.7 and -0.4 (best they could do)
- Caster not adjustable
- Toe 0.14deg and 0.14deg (total 0.28deg)

Sits and rides nice, looks great from the rear end (not the collapsed rears so typical with worn/lowered X5's).

Cheers.

Would be great to see some pics from the back if possible.

I'll snag some tomorrow. Even with the winters, the tires sit nice to the flares. The 20's will sit perfect I think.

I think rear spec camber was -1.5 to -2.2. It's set at -1.3, but the inward lean looks proper now.

So that's what a non-stanced X5 looks like
