They are only adjustable within the range of the stock suspension with the pins pulled.

This is correct but I'll elaborate a little. In order to install the Dinan plates the alignment pins need to be removed in order for the camber plates to mount flush to the factory top mount. The factory top mount studs need to be removed and new fasteners are supplied with the Dinan plates that flush mount to the surface of the plates in order to sit flush against the factory gasket.



Because of the offset of the Dinan plates it gives you additional negative camber, but as mentioned, limited by the elongation of the mounting holes in the strut towers. Basically there's still a range of adjustment in order to set the camber equally on both sides.

As mentioned, Dinan plates alone did provide -2.1 and that's pretty good. With the addition of M3 lowers you should be seeing up to -2.5 or a bit more.

Sorry for the hi-jack.

the 7 inch springs are just the default springs from tc. i just measured the front tc spring to confirm and its 7.25ish inches.

Indeed. Though I am sort of yearning for VB3/703's now (or Volk RE30s after seeing that thread)

Thanks man! They've held up real well over my shitty roads but they've gotten their share of battle scars (my fault).

Negotiate a sale on partial sets to get the right offset and then do a custom powder coat!

For whiteline there's a bunch of vendors, I ordered from FCP Euro as they also carried Dinan plates and RSMs....

For OEM, Schmeidmann even with shipping was a pretty good deal...!

There's a thread on the rsm, I measured the gain I got from them and it was as advertised.

If I were you I would go with the white lines. They are very easy to install. Not sure either one has a performance advantage.

Cool. The whitelines are two pieces, so they are much easier to push in.

Have white line inserts, though I'll be doing the two piece bushings as soon as I figure out a surefire way to remove them.

Ordered my PowerFlex race black inserts from ECS. Have 'em in the garage - not installed just yet.
