Front Camber Kit - Questions

Fellow Lappers, Auto-Xers, Road Racers,

I have a question regarding the SPC (or is it SCP) front camber kit. I placed an order for one a few weeks ago at the local speed shop, but noticed only a few days ago that GC makes a kit as well.

Will the SPC kit permit me to attain -3.0 - 3.5 ?

In my readings I get the impression that the GC camber kit is only for the GC coilover system, or will it work on my current setup? I still have time to cancel my current order.

I am running Koni with H&R sport. I looked at the SPC design and looks like I won't be able to adjust the firmness setting on the shocks once the kit is installed.

Thanks guys,

A few companies make camber plates for E46 as well. Turner has one, TCK has one, and there's another brand that is compatible with OE setup. Can't recall the name right now. In addition, one of the members on this forum designed a set as well (I am running this right now).

IIRC, GC uses Konis as well. So maybe you can ask them about compatability.

Also vaio76109 on this forum uses GC stuff. Look for his post in this sub-forum.

I've heard some people badmouth the GC camber plates, however, I don't know why. With mine maxed out it read -3.3 and -2.9. I think they have a couple different variations which will allow different diameter struts.

MotorForce which is a popular upcoming brand should have an e46 camber plate out shortly, u might wanna email them.

TCK, dunno much about theirs but they make good stuff.

SPC's plates really aren't that good for all out performance. They were designed more as an OEM replacement "crash" mount. I highly doubt they'll give you the adjustment you want.

The GC plate is the best one out there without a doubt and there are a few versions for the E46.
