Default Gandalf's 240sx log

OK, I've decided to stop "spamming" the forum with all these random posts regarding my 240, so they will all be combined here.

First question is, do you guys recommend this rear camber kit? (I'm trying to keep it inexpensive, as this week I have to pay for 2 new tires, an alignment, and I'm buying a starter, odo, clutch, and all clutch-related items from a friend who's parting out his 240.)

Actually, for basically the same price I could also get this:
GODSPEED 95-96-97-98 S14 S15 240SX REAR CAMBER KIT NEW: eBay Motors (item 300471957820 end time Sep-30-10 15:41:35 PDT)
or this:
1995-1998 NISSAN SILVIA 240SX S14 REAR CAMBER KIT RED: eBay Motors (item 170519832477 end time Oct-25-10 15:28:14 PDT)

Which would work better for my needs?

It's not a Amazing built piece but with dual pipping and nice brasing it will be much stronger then stock, and for the price it's great.

Alright, noob question: I got the rear camber kit today (thanks for the help choosing it, Lautin!) and it didn't come with any instructions. No amount of googling yielded anything either. What do I need to know to install it?

Just lift vehicle remove shock remove upper control arm replace with new camber kit install shock and lower. Then bring straight to align shop.

Alright, so I don't have to worry about having proper load on the suspension when I install it? (I'm driving it a slow 2 miles to the alignment shop the minute it's done.)
And in this case the camber kit is nothing more than an adjustable upper control arm?

EDIT: Aha, searching for adjustable upper control arm installation gives me lots of info. Strange...

Thanks Lautin!
