ok
so
i THOUGHT i knew how this worked, but i think im confused.
i drive an r18 coupe

when you lower a 8th civic, to adjust REAR camber youd need camber arms. im well aware of this

now heres where my questions come in
the bar under the car in the back middle across the top is the control arm bar.
now
the control arms, are those the same as camber arms? or is there something totally different
is this
CorSport Online Store: Honda - 06+ Civic - CKHD190

the same as
this?
CorSport Online Store: Honda - 06+ Civic Si - 516-05-0520

or is it one or the other? they look different VERY different do you need both?

is the 2nd link what connects to your control arm bar? or are control arms different?

also, call this a stupid question as well, but we dont use upper + lower camber arms do we?

because this brings me to my next question,
i picked up a 240 lowered on coils, and the camber is ****** (due to being lowered and not correcting)
i went to get the supplies to fix, but was shocked to find theres
rear upper control arms
Amazon.com: M2 Performance Nissan 240SX 1989-1994 S13 Rear Upper Adjustable Control Arm: Automotive
rear lower control arms
Genuine OEM Nissan Rear Lower Control Arms 89-94 S13 Nissan 240SX
front lower arms
Megan Racing - 1989-1994 Nissan 240SX S13 Adj. Front Lower Control Arms - At KGS Engineering


and half the time the **** looks TOTALLY different from different makes
like doesnt even look like the same part half the time

lower control arms are the same thing as rear camber arms
and i believe that both the ksport and skunk 2 are the same exact thing

as for the 240 questions i have no idea, i cant help you there

yes sir. now depending on the coils you get, some come with adjustable camber plates (bc racing does i believe) so you might not need front camber bolts
