I guess everybody knows these from the Best Motoring Clips. The Spoon CEO states they added these for "easier handling".

I would like to know a little bit more about these, they are shorter - I meassured approx. 3mm, mounting positions meassured - so obviously they increase negative camber on the rear.

Do people know the difference in factory alignment SPEC on rear camber between the SPEC 96 and SPEC 98, to know how much camber changes by these exactly?

Experience from people who switched from spec 96 to spec 98 arms?

SPEC 96 vs SPEC 98:

I have one and need to find one more to complete the set.

Anyway, are you sure about 3mm difference? I just compared mine to ek9 one, chassis mounting bracket to center of the hole for mounting on trailing arm, exactly the same.
I have complete ek9 trailing arms with uca still mounted on them, bolt that holds the uca to trailing arm is sticking out by about 10mm, so if I stick 98spec uca onto that bolt its chassis bracket/tab will sit exactly parallel to ek9 uca chassis bracket, edge to edge same.
