Rear camber links

i just got my car lowered, and the rear feels...sloshy... i'm hoping it's because i don't have the camber kit, which brings me to another question, is there a cheaper camber kit for the rear than the one hotchkins tuning has?

believe me, I've tried looking for other cheap brands but hotchikis is the only one I can find. Maybe others had some luck but i doubt it.

Have you aligned the car since the spring install?
I waited a month after putting on my Eibachs and it was way out of alignment. I hade bought the camber correction kit (two bolts) and found out that I did not need them for a proper alignement.
I haven't noticed any sloshy feel, it handles better if anything.

check your alignment, and how low is your drop?
camber only causes bad handling at extreme settings... you can drive normally up to 2 degrees negative imo, it will actually help your cornering at a slight loss of straight line stability and the obvious negative is your tires will cup, but it shouldn't cause "sloshiness" sounds like more an alignment issue... when you drop the car, you not only increase camber, your also increasing the toe-out...
