Question Adjustable control arms

My 2005 6mt G25 is wearing front tires bad. The camber is off by quite a bit. I got a quote from the mechanic for $1081. My insurance will cover $480 of it. He had the Adjustable control arms at around $850. Ive looked around and found big price differences. I dont know much about this so Im turning here for help again.

$919 for Stillen
STILLEN : STILLEN Camber Adjusters & Toe Arms

$399 Ksport
Ksport Front Adjustable Upper Control Arms 350Z/ G35: <font color="#ccoooo">FREE SHIPPING</font>

$275 Megan racing
SpeedZone Motorsports*::*Megan Racing Front Adjustable Upper Control Arms : 350Z/G35

$239 Kinetix Racing
Kinetix Racing G35 Front Adjustable Camber Control Arms, $1 Shipping - Infiniti performance parts


I would like to break even on the deal and not have to use my own money seeing as how I need tires. Not looking for anything fancy just something to keep my tires from wearing. Ive had megan springs on my last car they were alright but the coating came off and they started rusting. But I see these arms are powder coated. The kinetix look different from all of the rest. Any help would be great.

Will they pay 480 in general? You should get the front and rear spc kit its like 520 for both front and back together. If you're only going to get fronts the kinetix you priced there aren't bad either. I wouldn't waste money on the stillen ones or the Megans.

So I think that SPC is the kit the mechanic is quoting me for $837.50 BUT just for the front kit.

Go with SPC front and rear but don't nuy them from your mechanic. You can get front and rear from THMotorsports (a vendor here) for about $525. The fronts alone are about $425. They aren't too difficult to install.
