Product Release: 1M M3 Camber Plates for OE or Sport Springs

Vorshlag camber/caster plates are designed to be compatible OE or Sport style springs and all strut types. Vorshlag make numerous variations of this plate and accompanying perches to work with your set-up and we have most of the popular ones in stock. The Vorshlag upper perches allow us to add a sealed radial bearing that isolates the spherical bearing in the camber plate from radial turning loads of of the strut shaft during steering inputs. This is part of why our plates last the lifetime of the car!

*Compatible OE, Sport springs and KW V3.
*Installs with basic hand tools, no chassis modifications required.
*Plates are designed specifically for BMW E82 1M and E9x M3(non-EDC).
*Caster & Camber are independently adjustable.
*Camber is easily adjustable at the track from the engine compartment with simple (metric) hand tools. No need to reach inside the wheel well with a wrench to tighten.
*The spherical bearing used in the Vorshlag camber plate is the largest used in any BMW camber plate on the market. The result is much better durability and wear characteristics than the undersized bearings used in our competitors' plates.
*Designed for maximum suspension travel (bump travel). More than an inch more strut travel than some of our competitors' designs.
*Alloy steel bearing holder - Tough as a German Tank!
*Aluminum alloy main plate for lighter weight, engraved and fully anodized
*All components plated or anodized for maximum corrosion resistance and long life.
*Maximum negative camber setting depends on caster setting, ride height, and is ultimately limited by the strut tower opening on these chassis. The E82/90/92 strut tower hole is more restrictive than previous generation BMWs. *Expect to get -2 to -3.5 max camber, depending on ride height.

Harold,
Are these actually in stock and available now? Can you send me pricing and information on any options. I have a 1m with stock suspension. Would like to adjust camber/caster for when I instruct at club HPDEs but car is my daily driver so need to retain good street manners.

Please PM or give me a call.

We're shipping them today! Harold should have his very soon.

We have fitments for both the OEM and the KW V3 struts already worked out. We can work out other fitments if needed.

How does the stack height compare to the stock unit?

Neil, it's VERY close. When installed our test car was within 1/32" of it's original ride height.

Nice work! Must not have been easy to accomplish.

BTW, I ran Vorshlag plates on my '99 M Coupe (with AST coilovers) and am now running them on my 1M with JRZ RS1s and 60 mm Swift springs.

Couldn't be happier!
