It depends.

You should not be asking what the camber range is. You should be asking what the usable slot range is. The camber is affected by factors other than just the camber plate. And most...

We (Vorshlag) probably build more plates for KWs than any other strut. They are one of the most popular street struts and we've got all the measurements to tailor the plates to fit.

Is it a camber plate? If yes, then it's the most likely that the spherical bearing in the camber plate is worn out or loose. Yes, even if it's NEW. And it's hard to tell when the car is at rest, or...

You can get an ATI all day long for $400 as long as it's going on an LSx engine.

But if you need one for a BMW, open your wallet. $400 wont even get ATI's attention.

The PSS9 and PSS10 can come both ways. But they either come in 60mm or OEM sizes. They don't come from Bilstein in 2.25" or 2.5" spring sizes. If they are OEM sized springs, they can be 100mm, 104mm,...
