Can this be sufficiently adjusted to correct the camber with the BMR lateral arms or do we still need camber bolts?

Replacing the spindle rods was not necessary, it turns out they can do a modification the strut mounts to make the holes bigger, then get the car in proper alignment. The way the car was designed didn't leave enough room for adjustment apparently.

Hope this helps someone because now that I got it fixed I'm very happy with the way my car handles snow now.
I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I was just curious to where exactly they grinded on the strut mounts to allow for proper alignment? Thanks for your help. I just got this car and want to make sure my wheels last as long as they can.

I would also like that info if any one is still listening lol. I was told that there is no adjustment for rear by the place I did an alignment. They told me if I was worried about the rear just get some struts put in.

If I'm understanding the problem/question correctly, there are special bolts that they can use to alter the rear end alignment. When you turn them, it alters the alignment. I can't think of the proper name right now though - but f you do some searching on the forum, I'm sure you can find it. Camber alignment bolts? Something like that...

Moog makes eccentric lower strut mount bolts. They're called Cam bolts.

Front & Rear - Moog K90474 -1.75 to +1.75 camber adjustment.

The front camber is not adjustable from the factory either... You would need 4 bolts total, one at each strut to knuckle mount. This will allow camber adjustment at all 4 corners. Do yourself a favor and buy these bolts and install them yourself. A shop will beat you up on parts and labor for this, in addition to the alignment cost.
