BWP adjustable control arms for lowered cars

has anyone looked in to the new BWP adjustable control arms (rear) to help address the negative-camber issue when lowering the Jeep?

peace.

Re: BWP adjustable control arms for lowered cars

I believe the adjustable ones are for 06-10 SRT models only

Re: BWP adjustable control arms for lowered cars

I have fitted the Road Magnet 1.8F, 1.8R to my SRT and have installed the Black OPS adjustable control arms. The rear is now within spec and no negative camber. I live in Perth also so can catch up to show you the install.

They look a little out dated like their end links. I don't know how that design will work.

Those threads are to small. These trucks are 5200lbs and those are small thin arms for these. Those would work on a small mustang maybe. Those threads will be toast after a couple adjustments. It helps to have engineering behind it and they don't.

Re: BWP adjustable control arms for lowered cars

the black ops ones are works of art. it's a shame you can't see them when they are installed. With RM mid levels all alignment values are well within spec.
