What's the ID of the silver aluminum bit you have there?

Does this mean the highest setting on the threaded collar will be higher than normal...similar to when some front camber plates are used that add height?

Yes - it's going to increase the stack height.

I have a theory though that if things works out with the ID as I think they will you can gain some of that back, and it won't be too expensive.

^^thanks. now i have a new motorsports word to add to the vocabulary^^

actually - i was worried about not having enough stack height with these kw's, so it may just work out for the better. These are going on a Forester which should explain that a bit. The other STi-specific coilovers I had on there really didn't let the car sit high enough to keep the susp. geometry in check.

I have PDE camber plates in the front to add some stack btw..

REAR CAMBER PLATES by Vorshlag

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We've been waiting a very long time for these, and I'm happy happy happy to announce they are here. I mean seriously, really happy.

So here's the details:

Compatible with 60 mm Coil-Over springs (perches for 2.5" coming soon).
Installs with basic hand tools, no chassis modifications required.
Plates are designed specifically for 02-07 Impreza
Camber is adjustable at the track from the trunk with simple hand tools.
The spherical bearing used in Vorshlag camber plates is the largest used in any Subaru camber plate. The result has much better durability and wear characteristics than the undersized bearings used in some competitors' plates.
Designed using alloy steel, not aluminum, for the minimum stack-up height and maximum suspension bump travel. More than an inch more strut travel than some of our competitors!
100% CNC machined, alloy steel construction - Tough as a German Tank!
All components plated for maximum corrosion resistance and long life.

And a couple of other things:
Camber challenged Wagon guys with sedan coilovers - this is something you really want to think about.
Vorshlag also added a nice little bonus - a single row bearing for the upper perch to allow it to turn freely while compressing and decompressing.
Stack height is ONLY about 31mm. This beats the heck out of the stack height that uses the stock top hats and upper perch adapter as that comes in at over 60mm.

do you know if the tein pillow ball front upper mount (gold) will work with regular springs (tanabe gf210) and also jdm sti version 7 struts? or does it require coilovers? can i use the stock spring perch to make it work? thanks.

I am wondering the same thing Crashtest Sonny is... Will Tein Camber Plates work on OEM Spring/Shock setups? I Have a set of Flex's that need rebuilding, but the extra negative camber of the plates will really help hold me over until I can get the flex's rebuilt

The Vorshlags don't lower the front, I think, but they don't raise it as much as most of them. Other than that I think you're right. And the Ground Controls and the Vorshlags are built for coilover springs, not "regular" springs.

That is correct, but I also know that vorshlag is working on a setup for regular springs and dampers. I will ask about progress on that.

I now have a set of RCE T2's on order for my 99rs. I currently have a set of Cusco camber plates but want more caster than I can get with them rotated. I want to get new plates for the T2's and it's come down to the Max-C and the Vorshlag.

I would put the Max-C's on the opposite sides, from normal, where they would be basically caster only adjustable but still give a camber gain of -1.5* in addition to what I can get with the OE bolt and lowering, that will be more than enough for my autocross needs. The main reason I'm having a problem with the idea of using these is that a number of people are having problems with them.

The reason I'm considering the Vorshlag's is they are said to give more caster even in their normal position, meaning that they set back the the camber adj. slot from the front of the car more than other plates, which try to maintain stock caster. Does any one know how much the set back is? I would get the plates for the GD but put them on my GC so they would angle back and in like my rotated and flipped Cusco's but their additional set back would help with more caster than I can get with the Cusco's. If I'm figuring it right I could also flip and rotate the Vorshlag's and make them a caster only adj. plate but I need to know how much they are set back to get an idea of how much camber I'd be giving up to the Max-C. I do like the idea that the Vorshlag's may allow me to use a longer spring as well. Also, if anyone has these, how much, if any, room is there to extend the adj. range for more negative camber if I wanted to extend the slots?

edit, 7/3. I e-mailed Vorshlag my ??? an got a response late yesterday. The engineers conferred and checked their technical drawings and said that their GD camber slot sits back .2" and generates an additional +.55* of caster based on a strut length of ~21". They also said the reason they didn't set it back more was to accommodate a future OEM spring perch. They also said that after my ??? that their web site was updated to reflect this info.
