      Oh wow they are 16s? Always thought about getting 16s and making them big lips haha

      As for the rear camber them in it'll give you clearance big time I'd say go to a shop I did my alignment myself.

      There's a simple bolt to get to I. The rear to adjust camber big time

      Haha oh word.

      This is the best I could get for you. I need to jack my car up and take a pic for you but to tired doing 15 hour shifts at work hahaha

      It's literally next to/behind the rear strut like a half moon shape piece. The bolt and washer combo is how you adjust the camber but becareful throws your heel and toe out of wack to and the bolt holding the lower control arm is how you adjust that haha

      I was hesitant for a while out of concern for the warranty, and the realization that I shouldn't try to make the car compete with my 1.8T.

      Got the APR Tune this last weekend. At first I wasn't that impressed. I was expecting more from the tune. So I pulled over went through the programing again to make sure it was in the performance mode and then took it one step further and turned off traction control.

      The car instantly leaped off like a scalded cat in desert! I noticed right away that the shifting was SO much better and the power was felt through the entire run up to 120mph.

      I also had a front sway bar put on trying to curb some of the body roll of the JSW. It was set to the middle setting of +70. That was instantly noticed on the first turn out of APR's drive. WOW! For the people that aren't going to lower their car and want to get rid of the roll this was a PERFECT addition!

      I will post pics of the bar here later this week!

      only 2,500 miles till the warranty runs out. I might pull the trigger early.

      For $20 yes. I think it is perfect. I could have done a better job painting them, but they look good at 2 feet or more, which is good enough for me. I can fix them up later if need be. I still have extra paint.

      The bushings make a hell of a difference; I didn't expect much, my rubber bushings looked/felt damn near new at just over 20k. I got mine via usrallyteam.com due to better shipping prices.
