Talking SPL eccentric lock out kit?

Got swifts springs that I'm about to pop on stock sports shocks. Bought SPL rear camber arms, & SPC toe bolts. I get what both those do, but do I need SPL ECCENTRIC LOCK out kit as well? Not quite sure what it does.

You can use the un-centered washers and bolts to change the alignment because the stock arms are not adjustable. Since you change the arms to adjustable ones, you can use the eccentric lock out kit to get rid of that.

The lock out bolts replace the eccentric bolts on the inboard end of the camber arms. Since you replaced (are replacing) the 'essentially non-adjustable' stock arms with the adjustable SPLs there is no longer any need for a 'second' camber adjustment point. The SPLs will give you all the adjustment range you'll ever need and you'll never have to worry about the eccentrics 'slipping' if you were to leave 'em in there.

Just be aware that you'll only use half of the lockout kit. The remaining 2 bolts and 4 little square plates would only be used had you gone to an adjustable mid-link. Since you went with toe bolts they serve no purpose.

Yup. That's why I bought lock outs from a vendor that would see me just two instead of being stuck with the extra pair of SPL lock outs.

Yes, you only use 2 of the lockout bolts in your case. Had you replaced the midlink with an adjustable one (SPL makes them), the other two lockout bolts would be used for those.

I have a SPL lockout kit. I don't have the midlinks, so I only need half the kit. If you want the other 2 bolts and 4 washers, let me know and they are yours for the cost of shipping. Privileges of a premium members.
