Default Fitting Guide / Help needed with Ireland Engineering Camber Plates

Guys,

As above, can anyone advise / provide a fitting guide for the IE Camber plates??

My GF's Dad is a mechanic and I'm hoping with a simply guide, I can get him to stick these on my car for me ASAP.

Probably a long shot, but the IE plates have been shipped with ZERO instructions....

How much guidance are you looking for? Full step by step or just general idea?

General idea is:

-Remove front struts from car
-Compress springs
-Remove OEM Top Hat
-Replace Top Hat with new IE Camber plates
-Re-install
-Get aligned

As opposed to these as shown on their webpage:

Really concerned that I have been sent the wrong plates, but with me being in the UK, its a nightmare trying to get in touch with them

I'd wait to hear back from them. I haven't seen them use the circle plate design for MINIs before, but they might have changed to that to keep costs down. As long as the studs line up with the strut tower they should work. See what they say

They may have sent you E30 camber plates by mistake.

Yeah, they look to be from another BMW. I love the I.E. guys and there products. I have visited their place. They are super busy dudes since they build everything in house. So i could see them sending out the wrong plates by mistake. But they have great customer service in replacing parts.

Just rang them from the UK - dreading the phone bill!!

They have confirmed they have sent the wrong items - should have a replacement coming over ASAP.

Thanks for your help guys
