If things go as planned, I'll be dipping my toes in this weekend

If only I had an iphone/itouch. The same app work on an itouch?

Yup. Works on itouch too. That's what I use.

But if you don't have one, it's certainly not worth buying one for this purpose Just set the top plates the same and you'll be fine.

Camber plates came in today. When I got to messing around with them, I noticed that if I push both plates as far inwards as they can go, they're not even. Are they supposed to be like this or do I need to reassemble them?

Could you flip them over and take a pic of them for me please?

They're not assembled correctly. Undo the adjustment bolts and make sure they match. It's done that way so you can get the max travel in both adjustments. The one on the right is the one you want to adjust I think.

Wanna save on shipping? I may be ordering some too Looking at the promini ones too though....same style, $25 cheaper

Scratch that, stack height on the promini plates is too tall. IE it is I guess.

Yea, those were my thoughts. I took a picture anyway. Same orientation. Thanks rally.

Rally, either I read your post wrong or you just ninja edited it. Is it the left or right I need to adjust?

I'm thinking the left one only because I can actually get that backplate to poke off the top plate if I move it far enough to the right (in relation to the pic above).

I ninja edited cause I was wrong and looking at them backwards.

Looking at the last pic you posted, the one on the right would allow the most negative camber due to the orientation of the bolts.

Re the IE fixed plates: anyone hear of any quality issues with them? I've heard of one story that makes me doubt them. But they are so cheap I want to believe that they will be fine.

Spherical bearings will generally wear when used in everyday scenarios (one of the reasons these are "race"). It's real easy to swap out the spherical bearing. Heck, if they use a common size you could replace it with an aurora bearing which is high quality.

Bearings are the only quality issue I've heard about when it comes to IE plates. What did you hear?

I was referring to the fixed plates. The races are adjustable, ya?

There was a guy local to me that had the fixed plates installed and a shop put his car on a lift and the front struts just fell out of the car.

Oh I missed that you said "fixed".

Sounds like they had an issue with the bushing then? I dunno.

I think that's what it was. Just curious if it was isolated or not. It's the only time I've heard of it. Plates are in my future though. The front needs more low.
