Excess negative rear camber!

Hi all, after lowering my Stagea with BC racing coil overs (which i can highly recommend) i now need to deal with the excess negative camber at the rear or ill be knocking out tyres hand over fist, i hear as the suspension is the same as Skyline (R33 is it?) the parts i need are easy to find and not to expensive, my question is, is it only one linkage each side to be changed then adjusted or is it more involved than that?

It depends how low you go.

For a smallish drop you'll get away with just the camber arms, however if it's on the floor then both camber and toe arms will be necessary (the more you lower it the more negative camber it induces, the more you adjust the camber the more it messes up the toe).

Ok, been looking around for adjustable rear arms and there is so many to choose from, what im not sure of is my 1997 series 1 Stagea has apparently the same rear suspension (apart from shocks) as a Skyline, i been told an R33 is the one but im not sure, can anyone shed any light on this please?
