    Huh that's pretty interesting. If I didn't need extra negative camber or had camber plates I'd definitely consider!

    Oh yeah I forgot you had camber plates now. It's not too late to get some lowering springs though. I'll be getting rid of my H&Rs soon... (wink)

    What are you swapping in? If I were in the ContiUS I would probably be down to take them off your hands. The guy I bought my camber plates from was also selling a set of Eibach Pro Kit springs for $80 CAD, unfortunately that was already sold when I inquired about it

    Eibach Pro Kit. I have Eibach sway bars so I need to match the springs. Been eyeing the Koni Special Actives for some time now. And then there's the 20% sale going on right now too. So close to pulling the trigger...

    Yup, stock springs with Koni Yellows. I'm not sure about what's going on with the Bilstein B4. I've heard of people complaining about the gas charge pushing the ride heights higher, but I think that was in the B6 struts.

    Nope, using Lemforder OE replacement strut mounts for the 330. Both cars are on Koni Yellow and stock springs.

    The ones I used look like the one on the right. There's photos in post #48 of this thread (link).
