Default Lowering Plates

Besides the RCE Lowering Camber Plates, what other companies make a camber plate that can lower a car?

yeah, zip. I want to make some, but I'm lazy. You are stuck with coilover springs, no stock sized springs will do. Plus you're limited some for the amount of camber/caster you can add before the spring runs into the side of the strut hole in the chassis. You can fit 2" of drop under the hood from what I've measured. In the rear, you can drop more.

I think TiC has something in the works with regards to a top hat that lowers the front slightly without decreasing travel. And if I remember correctly it looked like there was camber adjustment as well.

Hmm can't find the thread...

I asked the guys at TiC and they told me RCE was the only plate that lowered the front. They're working on some HVT plates, but they don't raise/lower the front at all.

I'm actually waiting for Myles to produce some of the RCE plates so I can buy them for my new setup. I wonder if making a list for a group buy would influence him to make them sooner...

And if you ever get around to making them I'll test them for you. Lift springs and dropped hats would be.
