I'm talking 7 and 8. #8 is the "pad" I'm referring to.

Depends on the camber plate.

For Example, the TSW's remove that and replace it with their own.

Not sure how the IE race ones work. You probably keep them.

I actually tried to swap my TSW's to the IE's the week before MOTD and bailed on it. I didn't realize that the IE uses the stock spring seat/pad which I had to dig up first, then it didn't fit together in a way that I found reliable/comfortable, and I think my Koni shock shaft (yes he said shaft) seemed just slightly too thick to fit through the IE. Anyway, I was already out of time after spending an hour or 2 trying to get the stupid nut (yes he said nut) off the strut so I called it a day. Might try again soon, I want more travel...

Ok good to know. Now just to be completely sure, when you attempted installing them, did you have to reuse those two washers (5 and 6) as well?

that wasn't clear. Also I didn't have Rally's nice little graphic handy. patience, hunger and lack of time got in the way of finishing it.

Myke, do you remember what oem parts you had to reuse when installing the plates?

Aaaaannd another question. Once I get both the plates and coilovers in, I won't be able to get an alignment for a week or so. Is it too difficult to adjust the camber plates myself so that both sides are somewhat equal? Or will I have to cruise around with say -1 on one side and -2 on the other?

Shouldn't be hard to set them close enough to the same.

You worry about things too much Just do it.

When it comes to new stuff I just like to be a little educated before diving in.

and sometimes you just have to be thrown into the deep end of the pool and start swimming already damnit

and listen to cooldaddy, use one of the iPhone apps that reads angles, it'll hold you over for the week.
