Default Good or Bad Idea

Would going with pic selects and the bushing kit be more than adequate for a weekend toy with some track use? Or would having adjustable camber/toe kits be beneficial? I currently have hardrace f/rlca's, but all other bushings need changed out. Currently have tein s springs on kyb struts.

I would say that you'll be fine. I currently AutoX on my suspension setup.

Which consists of:
PIC selects 10kf/12kr
LS rear sway bar/Stock EG8 front
GSR RLCAs w/poly bushings
ES RTA bushings
And some toe adjustment (within factory limits)

You will love the PICs. I would recommend going with the kit that's one step softer than mine if you plan on using your kidneys for anything later, maybe even another step down if you have shitty roads where you live. They're great but they're not the most DD friendly ... I still do it and I don't regret my choice, but I'd really like a real DD now (after a few years with them).

The factory adjustments for toe should be fine for a weekend warrior and the camber you get from lowering your car is still completely streetable. Would those bits be beneficial ... yes ... necessary ... nah.

Ninja edit: Doh weekend toy not weekend warrior. Slap those bitches on there and play around with the settings. DO IT!!!!

I appreciate the input. The roads here aren't terrible (outside of industrial/low income areas). I could definitely handle stiffer than I have now, but I don't need track only ride quality. Lol

Starting to wish I did the complete hardrace or pic bushing kit to start with. Ordered the arms to avoid pressing bushings out, and the blue color was a plus. Lol
