Camber plates for KW V2's

I'm going from a GC street/track kit to some KW V2's. I just got off the phone with GC and got confirmation that their camber plates WILL NOT work with the KW coilovers.

I need some new cost effective camber plates that will work with a lowered (not slammed) M3. I'm honestly not going to be changing the settings very often at all as I've got a street setup that love and I've got an e30 that I use for the occasional track/autocross event.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Perhaps I don't need the plates at all?

I forgot to ask GC....will the GC RSM's work with KW's?

Thanks guys!

Remember, as you go lower, you automatically get more negative camber. I run the H&R Race Springs on my 330Ci, lets say I got a 1.8" drop on the front. My new neg. camber was 1.8/1.9, these numbers work well for me on the street. Depending on your drop, you too will get automatic neg. camber, I'd try it first & see what you end up with.



Good luck,
Rob.

Im running the gc rear shock mounts with kw v2's on my 330ci. Im also using the vorshlag camber plates and they seem to be very good and they do make the attachments for kw's depending on what spring diameter you get

The GC street RSMs will work as long as the rear KW shocks work with standard RSMs. Most E46 shocks have a 10mm shaft and most RSMs are designed for a 10mm shaft. A few of the top-adjustable E46 shocks have 12mm shafts. The GC RSMs can configured for 12mm shocks but you have to either order them that way or get replacement RSM inserts from GC.

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.
