These adjustable replacements ensure the best alignment with either when you desire factory specification or if you decide to go even more aggressive with a suspension upgrade like lowering springs or coilovers. Also the adjustable arms will improve your handling, wear less of the inside side wall on your tires, and complete the look of the fitment inside the fender wheel arch.

      • Camber- Top of the wheel showing “tilt” Positive Camber or Negative Camber can determine how much rubber tread patch your tire will come into contact with the road. Alignment machines ensure that all four wheels are true and steady with each other and are corrected for the best connection on the paved roadway.
      • Toe- Toe Out, is the front of the wheel pointing away from the centerline of the vehicle.
        Toe In, is the front of the wheel pointing towards the centerline of the vehicle.  Rear Toe adjustment is the most important, because it can be critical to tire wear and handling.
      • Set Back- Positive Set Back indicates that the right front wheel are sitting further back than the left front wheel and Negative Set Back refers to the left front wheel sitting further back than the right front wheel.

After installing of the rear arms bringing full adjustability to camber, toe, and set-back links adapting the settings; simply adjust the suspension arms simply rotate the middle section of the arm expanding the length providing a custom precision alignment of your liking.

Take full benefit of an adjustable performance coilover dropping the ride height even lower compared to the factory specs and in return the car is more adhesive to the ground, lowering the center of gravity, enhancing your lap time, and impressing everyone with the precision fitment you acheived. These adjustable arms are a guaranteed need if you plan on lowering your vehicles height or want a more aggressive appearance with the wheel, tire and fender combo.

Continuing product development on the new Nissan GT-R, STILLEN has produced an upgraded adjustable front and rear sway bar set for the R35 chassis.

STILLEN R35 Nissan GT-R Sway Bar Endlinks

An upgraded sway bar really helps the GT-R keep flat through the corners, and the adjustability in both the front and rear bars allows the driver to fine-tune the suspension to suit driving needs at will.

We’re enthusiasts here at STILLEN, just like yourself. Whenever possible we like to get our hands dirty, especially when it gives us the opportunity to install some STILLEN products and get a real-world feel for them – just like you our customer will experience.

G35 Coupe Camber Kit

G35 Coupe Camber Kit


I drive a 2004 G35 Coupe, and after upgrading to 20″ wheels and installing an Eibach Pro-Kit and STILLEN Sway Bars, the resulting issue with camber on the front and rear was evident immediately, and I quickly realized that despite the fresh new rubber smell of the BFGoodrich’s I had just installed, these tires would be short-lived if I didn’t look for a camber solution ASAP.

That solution, thankfully, was a couple hundred feet away from my desk here at STILLEN, where we manufacture and assemble a full front and rear camber adjustment kit designed specifically to improve upon what Nissan left out, the ability to adjust camber in both the front upper control arm, or the solid camber and toe arms in the rear.

We documented the driveway install of these pieces, so others could get a feel for what went into the install.  Thankfully I was able to bribe Kyle and Mike here in the office with ‘refreshments’ for the use of Mike’s driveway (alley?) and his impossibly robust set of tools (did you need a Razor-Blade-On-A-Stick™ to remove some window decals, yea he’s got one of those..), and both of their wrenching skills to tackle this job.

I’m happy to report that when all was said and done, alignment shop visited, the BFGoodrich’s were planted to the pavement as they should be, and tire wear is extremely even, with no signs of feathering.
