Default Ap1 rear toe arm

Hey everyone, my AP1 is suffering from seized alignment bolts in the rear end. Since I lowered the car with Swift springs I have about .8 inch of rear toe. My s2k is 100% a street car, will never be on track, but driven spriited when safe on the street. It sounds easier to purchase a aftermarket rear toe arm to correct the problem rather than pressing the old bushing and replacing with Honda hardware and a Mugen bushing. If going aftermarket is the recommended solution, do I need another eccentric bolt to mount to the subframe, or just a high grade regular bolt?

Not sure your going to find a aftermarket lower control arm that bypasses your issue. You can however get an aftermarket adjustable upper control arm or press in some spc camber joints in the factory upper control arms to re align camber from the top. A aftermarket toe/bump steer kit can address your toe adjustment.

Camber is not an issue at my current height, only toe is out of spec.

Just replace with a new OEM toe arm.
No need to get a new eccentric bolt unless you need to cut yours out.
We are talking about part #10 or #11 here right?

Isn't your eccentric bolt what is stuck?

You need a toe arm and an eccentric bolt at the least, it seems.

I'd buy the nut and maybe the other eccentric washer too.

OEM arms are the best bet.

Or maybe a standard adjustable set of hardrace arms WITHOUT the bump steer correction.

Clock those bushings. Don't be a dummy.

Also, use anti seize for success in future endeavours.
