But you say you can't even really tighten it... That doesn't sound good at all...

BTW, what do you mean the SPC are preset? It looked to me you could move the ball joint freely from positive to negative in order to adjust the camber...
I'm happy with them, they're built well and I haven't had any issues. The "problem" is that with my car lowered the nut on top of the UCA is above the wheel well liner and it's hard to get up in there to get it tight.

The camber is fully adjustable, the caster has specific values based on how the washer/plate is installed.

Thanks for the info! I imagine it's a pain to set them properly, putting and pulling the wheel on and off and setting and resetting until you get it into spec.

My car is also lowered therefore me needing the Camber Kit. I am lowered on the Eibach SportLine Springs which is the lowest lowering springs application available for the Challenger outside of coil-overs. So I have some pretty bad negative camber, mainly on the front passenger side. I hope I can tighten that nut on top of the UCA because of it being lowered and my big wheels....By the way, what size wheels/tires are you running?

But I still do hope that someone would chime in about these SpeedLogix arms cause i'd be interested.

The Eibach/SpC front arms are currently the best option available, however we do have our own UCA in the works that is a much better solution. Not exactly what you see in the pics here from the race car, but using the same ideas learned from the track.
