thanks, that's what I figured.

So no one knows of another camber plate option that has a reduced height so I can increase the front suspention travel?

you might want to check out the SPC camber plates.....I don't know if they allow more travel....but they LOOK way shorter than all the others. You might wanna ask them and see if they lower the car and allow a bit more travel.

HPUDrew's got the SPC's on his R56. I checked them out last night. They definitely get the job done. I'd say they aren't as fancy as the H-Sports(no tick marks, no fancy colors...) but they're working well for him. He's going to get an alignment today so we'll see how everything works out after that.

I have the SPC rear adjustable lower control arms...seriously beefy. If their camber plates are as good as their control arms, you can't go wrong, IMHO.

The SPCs will raise ride height. Any of them that use a flat piece of metal where they mount will, the reason that the HSport/Helix/RDR whatever plates dont is because the actual contact surface of the bearing carrier and the top plate is recessed.

Over inflated Runflats = more noise.

paul, how can you tell if your car's making noise when you're blasting opivy at 120db?!

rfi is rocking the spc plates on his r53 too. his height doesnt appear to be affected by them at all:

So far so good on the SPC plates. Next to the stock upper mount they looked slightly shorter, but I didn't measure. Also since I have an r56 it's tough to compare apples to apples. I'm very happy with them so far. One dragon and about 1,000 miles is all for now though.

mine are actually Koni's but yes...

Drew, thanks for the added info!

I'm currently leaning towards the H-Sports but I'm not in a hurry, and I've got bills to pay before this mod...

- For cars using coilovers with 2.5" diameter linear springs. Adjust. Range: 0 to -3.8 Deg.
- For cars w/stock style springs or lowering springs. Adjust. Range: 0 to -2.0 Deg. Car with Coil-overs use alt. kit. HS30832 or HS30835

I run Koni coil-overs. They use the stock perches, the springs are progressive and barrel shaped...

what H-Sport option do I use? Sounds like the last one?

Marcel.
Anyone know the diameter of the KW v1 coils? I know they're linear but I can't seem to find if they're 2.25" or 2.5"
