Adjustable Rear Control Arms

So Im looking for control arms that will allow me to adjust the camber/caster on the rear wheels.. I saw the MadMaxx ones, but cant seem to find a set for the MK6/Golf R..

Im not even sure that the R uses the same ones as the R (AWD vs FWD)

Advice?

Hrmm those prices aren't bad at all. And the rubber bushing would be street friendly.

Halvie, they're forged aluminum so I would assume they're a bit lighter than stock.

this... however i do know that the R seems to get less camber adjustment than the gti's do.

i hear IDF rear control arms can make alot of camber. but they are pretty pricey.

I know rear is adjustable but I thought you only had two settings since its flipping and oval washer.

no




The hole in the washer is offset, as you turn the bolt it spins the washer, it's infinitely adjustable in between the minimum and maximum spots

Thanks for the info guys.. Maybe Ill try to use the stock parts to adjust the camber before I buy any more parts.. Im sitting 24.75 FTG.. will stock suffice?

EDIT:
Ive been told from my vendor that he stopped selling Megan Racing due to quality complaints from clients.. Any other suggestions?
