I take back what I said. I went for another drive and when I checked afterwards they were back to their original spots. My wheels must have been turned that 1/8".

Ok thanks. I just test drove the car about a mile and the nuts backed off about 1/8". Hopefully they'll stay there.

I just grabbed some new nuts with less threads to replace the old ones. I'm...

Anyone? I know I'm being a pain in the ass with all this, but I'd like to know if my car is drivable for the time being.

Ok, so for the time being, I put an extra washer in and the plates work. No more noise. The only thing is, the top nut doesn't have enough threads to "lock" into place. They're almost there but not...

I'm thinking it would be easier on me just to replace the front springs. Is it possible to find out the spring rate of the vmaxx spring and just buy that same rate in a 2.5" spring?

Or do things...

It's a long story. All we had available were the 3 washers for each side that IE provided. So we machined the top nut so it could work with the bearing without the need of a washer. We then put the 3...

I just talked to Dustin over at autoxcooper and he actually said he's installed them on customer cars with vmaxx springs using 3-4 washers. So at least that's promising. But you're right, that does...

Scratch that rant. My real question is, does anyone on here have experience installing these race plates with oem diameter springs? I'm assuming the answer is no, but I might as well ask.

I have a dilemma.

Turns out these race plates aren't even really designed to work with stock diameter springs. The washers IE provided don't give enough room between the camber plate and the upper...

He's not too helpful of a guy. If I understood him correctly, the spring is binding up causing that sound (even though camaro said that's normal). I'm assuming because it's contacting the inner...

There is no noise at all when the load is taken off the front.

I did talk to Jeff at IE about it recently and he said I may have set the camber plates slightly past -2 when installing them. I know...
