The rear suspension on newer Subarus uses a multi-link design instead of struts. This allows better control of the alignment as the suspension moves through it's travel, namely the ability to gain camber under compression so that the outside rear tire has good traction and more grip. That also means that when lowering the car, the camber will increase, possibly to an undesired amount, and there is no stock adjustment. An inch of lowering will result in about -2.5 degrees of camber on each side, which is a little much. We like to see -2.0 or a little less for most street driven cars.
Whiteline's adjustable control arms are made of stamped steel and add camber adjustment to the rear end with offset washers. Inner bushings are stiffer polyurethane. They are also less expensive than many other offerings and easier to install than the adjustable upper a-arm bushings. These are our recommendation for those looking to adjust rear camber on a budget.
