Question W201 rear camber correction

Hi!

After I lowered my 16V with H&Rs, the rear camber became quite apparent. The insides of the tire wear quickly. As soon as my EVO II kit is finished, I'll probably lower the car a bit more. My question is what can be done to correct rear camber on a 16V? Performance Products has an eccentric bolt kit for the tie rod strut and the control arm strut. Will the adjustable control arm strut kit allow me to adjust camber? Do I need to make an eccentric bolt for the camber strut? Are my bushings worn (control arm or camber strut)?
I'm thinking of replacing the rubber bushings with poly ones. Can the old rubber bushings be pressed out of the struts?

Please help!!

The best camber adjustments pieces I have seen for this very common Mercedes problem are the ones at Delsing Motosport...

They're not cheap mind you but a must if you are going to go super low on a W201 or W124

Thanks yal,

I'll consider those.

But, does anyone know what an eccentric bolt on the control arm strut would adjust?? Camber or toe-in??

Thanks,
