Ive heard good things about these.

That being said if youre experiencing super bad wear on the inner 1.5 - 2 of your rear tire, the culprit is a worn out lower ball joint. Id replace those before I went with a camber kit.

I would do both the above mentioned mods. It's nice being able to set "0" camber on my rear drive.

You no longer have the bottom of your tires looking further out than the top?

Rear ball joints first, then change the control arms to adjustable. A lot easier to install and adjust and about the same money.

Pretty crazy that all of that is about the same price as the KMAC parts.

There are other manufacturers of adjustable rear control arms, not just Hardrace. I'm not running Hardrace. I have two different manufacturers in the rear, one for the lowers and one for the uppers. Bought at different times and got best pricing. Neither has ball joints, so I'm not sure what you're referring to.

Some kit's seem to have uniball and some balljoint on the control arms. Just wondering what is the quality on, since they cost a lot.

Uniball version isn't too good for road car. Kmac bushing kit probably last's longest.

You're correct. I forgot one end of each arm has a ball joint. They don't seem to be any different than the stock arms. I didn't run across any with uni-ball in my searches, but I'm sure they're out there. You're right they probably aren't great for a street car or daily. I don't know that the Kmac will last longer. I would think that would depend on the durometer of the material used?
