I'm wondering if anyone is using DSM camber plates for this purpose.

I'd like to get more castor as it seems this reduces the need for static camber while improving tire contact area throughout a turn.

I will be using evo struts and swift springs. Plan is to make shims to correct the positive camber associated with these struts with an upper camber bolt. Wondering what clearance issues I'll be dealing with.
Something like this

Would be awesome.

This is the BMW strut mount I measured.

Finally got around to do more measuring and turns out these bolts are too close together for our chassis. Will be looking at other options.

I use DSM camber plates for caster adjustment. I was able to get 4.2 deg of caster using them. I have a cambered upper bolt for the lower strut mounting to get my -2.5 deg of static camber. handles real nice.

Thanks. That's what I was looking for. Also what struts do you use?
