So good, thanks for the feedback!
I could almost live with the slight handling tradeoff, indeed the monster truck option could be a blessing on the rare occasion :)
I’m not sure which is preferable for rear camber correction, adjustable lower lateral arms, upper arms or a combination of both. If the rear axles are extended during suspension compression, pulling away from the diff, lower arms could do the trick. You could measure track at the rim caps to see what’s going on at different ride heights...

Yeah I certainly wouldn't recommend the switch for anyone driving their car hard (keep in mind my setup is quite cheap, 10k+ engineered setups might be fine for harder applications) but it's a smooth enough daily and the aesthetic and flexibility are big wins in my books.
I can actually get into my garage now!

I think upper arms on their own are the cheapest and easiest solution, I've gone with the lower arms and camber bushes and am happy with the options it gives me on setup, just need to dial it in properly now.
