After replacing the rear swaybar, swaybar bushings, links, trailing arm bushings, rear shocks and struts, and control arms, the rear of my car still feels like it tries to kick out to the side on a turn or over a bump. Almost feels like its drifting slightly back and forth on the highway. I've been chasing this issue for about 8 months. I also replaced the front shocks and struts, sway bar links, double/triple checked all tires psi, and got a full four wheel alignment. The only thing left I can think of are the rear toe/camber arms and have been trying to find a decent set for a reasonable price. I found these on Massives website, and they appear to include new hardware. They had to torch the old control arms off the car, as well as the trailing arm bushings, so I'm pretty sure these arms are toast as well. Does anyone have any experience with these or know anything about them?

Why not just buy regular ones from RockAuto. Do you really want to spend $500 in performance suspension parts for a old car?

You need to get a Fiesta ST before they're gone.

Well for one, I really like my "old car", secondly I don't have the money to just go out and buy a new car. I have what I have, and I want to make the best of it. Hence why I posted in the suspension section of the Forum, rather than a "What should my next car be." There is also the fact that once I get rid of this car, I can pull all of my upgrades off of it and put it on the next 2007 Focus I get. That way I'm not spending money on a newer car with all the payments and insurance rates that go with it.

I'm running the massive speed systems toe and camber arms. Love the build quality. Also the on car adjustability is very nice.

This one is easier to adjust on the fly than massive's one, but it's a bit more expensive

I'd say they are just as easy.

To the OP, Your really best off w/ either toe-links, I'd prefer the Steeda ones thou. How far off is your camber? You'll find there is a wide variance for the rear camber spec. I've done 3 suspension kits & I've yet to do or add any camber adjustment to the rear. It falls where it does. Toe-links make it so much easier to adjust then the eccentric bolts & your toe is critical......
