Ryan, I went and picked up the GC camber plates and the next question is how much camber are you running front/rear and why?

My car is setup for straight line acceleration and high speed stability. Front camber is at -1 to account for the positive camber change upon acceleration and front end lift, the goal was to net a neutral camber for max grip.

About to buy a set of vorschlag camber plates to pair with eubach mulipro r2 coilovers. Can't find anyone running those camber plates on this platform, found a few threads with worthless replies so I guess I'm guinea pigging!

Been running the IE plates paired to Bilstein B16 coils for 15 months and the bearing on the driver side already failed; which seems to be a common failure for IEs plates.

For sure the car has seen lots of track but they were supposed to be designed to be able to cope with that, I am higly dissappointed.

If someone requires more info just ask

I was going to go with IE camber plates and decided to go with super pro ball joints. Got up to -2.2 at full adjustment. Settled for -1.8. Got the adjustment I was looking for without killing ride quality.

I'm not a fan of those due to the nylon nuts they use. Way too much heat in that area of track use for nylon

Have you had experiences or seen them fail before?

So, I was thinking about this earlier since I use the SuperPro ball joints on my car. I only autocross my CC, so heat isn't the same kind of problem for me as it is for you, but perhaps nylock nuts aren't needed. I know that the stock ball joints use pressed bolts and single use nuts. The SuperPro ball joints come with grade 12.9 bolts and nylock nuts (grade 10, I think). I think they went nylock because grade 12.9 is hard to keep locked, with 90% max torque being specified to ensure that the nut doesn't back off. Instead of going to 90%, the nylon does a good enough job at a temperature range that's fine for most people.

Since the SuperPro uses nuts and bolts, I think it might make more sense to source replacement bolts at the same grade as OEM. That way, OEM single use nuts can be used, heat isn't going to be a problem, and you'd still get camber adjustability.

Is there anything about this that sounds unsafe?
