Anyone using/ever used Ireland Eng. fixed camber plates?

Basically it is a plate that the holes are misaligned so when you put the strut bearing on it makes them offset to a negative camber(maybe 1-2 degrees I think or is it -.5 degrees). If you need to replace the bearings, all you have to do is hammer out the studs on the oem bearings and bolt them to the plate. Fairly simple idea and can probably be made at a local machine shop. It will make the rubber on the bearing come close to the opening and also hard to get strut brace to fit. Slight grinding needs to be done.

I have the entire Ireland set-up and have been super-pleased with both the product performance and the support service of the Ireland people. The only thing to keep in mind is that you'll have to replace the spherical bearings in the camber plates fairly often (every 2 years/5,000 miles) as they were not originally intended for the jarring action that comes with street use...

you have the adjustable racing plates. the fixed plates dont have any bearings but rather relocate the stock strut-top bearings a bit inwards. i used to have the fixed plates and liked them. for a street car, they are all you need. for more serious track work the adjustable plates (like you have) are better, but require coilovers to really be useful. KMACS are a better compromise because they dont eliminate the metal-to-metal buffer of the stock rubber mounts, just replace them with urethane.
