New rear subframe or SPC bolts/comtrol arms

I have a 07 SES with rear sway bar. I am buying all FR springs and shocks. The car will be lowered slightly, but tire wear is very important. I am just wondering if the FR (M-5035-ZX3) subframe has any other benefits better than just buying the SPC bolts for $60 or the SPC control arms for $200. Thanks.

for the rears i highly recomend using the SPC upper control arms. The bolts dont work for shit unless your running the SVT suspension kit. Plus with the upper control arms if you need more camber you have it.

Yeah, thats what I figured. The bolts didn't look too great, but those arms are beefy; plenty of adjustment. Are the same basic arms included with the subframe, or is it some sort of eccentric bolt type setup? I hate eccentric bolts...

We have the Eibach pro system on our car and use bolts with no problems at all. I have no problems dialing in the specs I want (and advocate here). Got ours from Tirerack for around $30.00.
