Yeah those will definitely work, but only with coilovers that utilize an aluminum top hat instead of the stock strut bearings. So for instance, H&Rs and Tein Super Street coils will work, while KW V1s and ST Suspension coils will not. At least, not without some modifications.

You can try to find KMACs or LCR camber plates, but they're more expensive and much more scarce.

The other downside to the FSWerks plates is you have to cut out the metal that your front suspension attaches to inside the engine bay and then weld the plates onto the car. Great for a race car or a car you plan to have forever, not so good if its just a car.

For the rear, any camber arms will work really. I have SPC arms, Massive makes some, among others.

Then you'll need to roll your fenders substantially with a roller, and then pull them by hand from there.
