    Pretty sure you need shorter upper arms or you'll have too much positive camber

    Give Markus over at SC&C and he can help you get set up with proper parts to optimize camber curve. What your looking for in a set up is the suspension sits negative and keeps going negative as the suspension compresses. Using a Popsicle stick and paper clips you could simulate the suspension action.
    Looking at mounting positions and cycling the suspension through its range of motion lets you "see" a camber curve. Basic design frontends are called short/long arm. Long on bottom, short on top. BUT where the mount of the short upper sets up the camber curve.
    So redesigned A arms can correct the stock camber curve AND possibly allow for limited adjustment such as in SPC upper arms.
    Again, many companies make parts and sometimes stock arms can be made to operate adequately till you decide to upgrade or to use in limited fashion.
