The issue is that the coil springs ‘sag’ over time. That changes the camber angle of the rear wheels. Additionally, I haven’t found any aftermarket parts that match OE specs. I would recommend the adjustable arms as a result. It’s nice to have that adjustment if it’s needed. Especially if you spend a bunch of money on tires. I recommend Michelin Defenders for the Element.
