whats the benefit of adjustable rear upper camber control arms?

im seeing these pop up lately but dont understand the benefit vs installing traditional adjustable camber arms that are cheaper. these are considerably more expensive. and i think more complicated to install?

The UTI pieces use spherical joints. No rubber to deflect and meant for race cars. The Megan parts use rubber or resin bushings and are meant for street use.

As for why adjustable arms, dropping on springs or coil-overs often requires more camber adjustment than the stock arms can supply.

But why would someone spend $400 on upper control arms when they can spend a lot less using adjustable camber arms?

'Vert shocks in the rear mount differently. They mount ON the camber arms. SPC or all brands for the coupe, has no provisions for the shocks to go on the arms.
