UUC Strutbarbarian + Vorshlag camber plates

Looks awesome and improves handling x1000! Well, maybe not but it sure does look great!

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.

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....

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 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.
