camber plates / adjustable top mounts
I've desperately been looking for adjustable top mounts / camber plates for de E34 (M5). I bought a pair of adjustable camber plates but they are not going to fit properly. My car has the OEM topmount that is in one piece ( the expensive one ) thus the camberplate will not fit. Switching to a 2 piece OEM topmount will also not solve my problem because then my Bilstein B12 kit will develop to much space between the topmount and the center nut of the damper. ( Hope this makes sense ).
Bottomline is that I need camber plates that fit. There are a few options
1) BMW offers OEM topmounts that deliver 30 'minutes' of camber. I'm not sure how much degrees that is but iirc it is merely 0.5 degrees. To little since i need +/- 2 degrees.
2) Find an old set of Dinan camber plates for the E34 M5. These used to deliver about 1.8 degrees negative camber.
3) Other working and properly fitting camber plates i have not come across.
