UUC Strutbarbarian + Vorshlag camber plates
Looks awesome and improves handling x1000! Well, maybe not but it sure does look great!

What wheel setup, what suspension and what camber setting are you running?

bigjae1976 02-28-2010 09:14 AM

Bilstein PSS with 2 degrees up front. I run either 18" VMR CSLs, OEM M68 and APEX ARC8's. Although I haven't even fitted the ARC8s yet.

:rofl:Actually, I haven't even driven my car since I installed the bar.

I jumped on UUC's 35% off sale. I don't think I would have paid $350 for this. The bar is super light already, don't see the point of paying another $120 for the magnesium end plates.

The UUC bar is a nice touch... Congrats! But, I have to say that there's not much (if anything) that you could add to that engine compartment that's going to trump the twinscrew.

Lucky.... :boink:

Update. I changed my caster settings from max caster to min so I can get some more negative camber. The strut nut is hitting the bottom on the strut bar plate. Gonna call UUC to see if they can machine a little bit of material from the bottom.

I did similar:
BMW perf strut bar and vorshlag camber plates

the car feels a LOT better

2 deg of camber up front as well 0 toe

I called UUC, they basically said they've never heard of this issue and sorry.

So I just busted out the angle grinder and grinded the back of the strut plates to clear the strut nut. Problem solved.
