Drove it to work, early so it could have a work out, love the way the new suspension makes the car handle!

They’re not the offset style, I thought they were meant to bring the arms back to horizontal on a lowered car but I just measured and my arms are lower at the strut than subframe. 

 

 

They're designed to keep the lower arms lower at the strut and higher at the subframe- this is the whole talk about roll center stuff. 

 

I don't know- the camber plates don't look like a lot of added negative camber, but I don't know much about IE stuff.  My car is pretty low, which just adds negative camber, let alone the GC camber plates...

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but unless they're offset roll center spacers, they will actually decrease negative camber, no?  The lower control arm is fixed length; it will be longest when it's horizontal; as it moves away from horizontal the X component will get shorter, no?  Which will pull the bottom of the tire in towards the center of the chassis, decreasing negative camber?

 

Got a picture of the strut tops / camber plates? 

 

It depends on where the control arm position is before the spacer is added.

 

If it's angled up above the horizon, then adding the spacer to move them down will push the bottom of the wheel out, unless it pushes too far and starts to angle the arm down.

The camber plates don't add much, 5/8 degree per the website.  I thought it was more than that.

Found some goodies looking through some folders !

Very nice and rare: an early 1976 CA version in Schwarz with Nylon Brown interior (a.k.a, tan or beige), and sunroof with lowered front seats! A 237xxxx car probably, manufactured between September and November 1975. Original owner? I ask this because few others kept the mileage stickers...😉

 

Below, from my original-owner 1976. Oops: can’t find a photo of my mileage sticker...😯

 

Regards,

Dropped off the dash to the upholstery shop along with the leather cover. Should have it back in two weeks.

Working on putting together the center console right now so it’ll be ready when the dash gets back.

Also remounted the heater core.

Nice documents as well on yours. I am not the original owner and yes it is a 237 car. Everyday I am thankful that I have a E10 again. The Schwarz black makes these things very classy looking with the belt line trim and polished chip guards on the front lower quarter panel.

What?  Seriously?  Maybe it's part of their 'complete package' where that's what they want the car to have with the rest of their parts installed...

Pfft. Bumping up a few kerbs at speed would add more.

My struts were bent.

 

Is that no longer a thing?

 

:P
