T3 camber plates

Postby 40vpurpletop » Wed Jun 14, 2017 7:11 pm

So I recently bought T3 camber plates and was wondering should these have come with spacers of some sort? I am going to run it with the stock upper hat and I've been reading something about having the load on the bearings is bad. Please advise. Thank you.

those T3 Plates are for Coilovers(2.5in Spring), if you still have Trd, Lowering or stock Springs,
yes use stock upper spring perch. But you should be fine.

i know the Tein Camber plate came with a 5mm spacer

I ran into an issue. Looks like there isn't enough thread for the nut. Do you think it is fine like this or should I get a shorter nut?

did you do a short throw strut conversion? I had to put spacers at the bottom of the strut casings.

No short strut conversion. That wouldn't make a difference. The problem I see is the stock top hat doesn't go down the top of the shaft all the way but that would only help a few millimeters. The main problem is the camber plate block has a raised lip on the bottom which increases the height of the camber plate. I've seen photos of the ae86 camber plates and unless they changed, the bottom of the block is smooth. Mine has a raised lip.

The picture below is like what I have.
