Just installed the rear toe arms and also changed both my front and rear total toe from 0.4 to 0.2.
Now my car just feel more willing to turn, especially in the middle of a corner, rear traction is easier to break with sudden acceleration both during turn in and after apex. the rear is slightly tighter. In short, tail is more happy, but stability in some circumstances like in highspeed is slightly decreased.
do u guys think these effect is merely due to the decrease of toe in or it is due to the rear toe control arms? what if I am still using the oe toe arm with the same degree of toe in, do I still get the same effect?
p.s. my car already had m3 rear subframe bushings, rear guide rods, front control arms, ohlins suspension with rear 10 k swift springs. Thanks

it's the toe settings more than anything else.

sounds like you may have a toe out in the back. obviously that's not what you want. a slight toe in is the way to go

agree. the arm itself might not give that dramatic change. Thanks for the feedback.
