  • Camber Plates for strange Bilstein sizes

    I got my hands on some cheap Bilsteins a while ago, without tops or usable springs.
    For the top plates on the rear, I plan to drill out the factory units, but for the front, I want to do it properly with a set of camber plates.
    Problem is, I need something that'll fit this:



    Any ideas?

    Most of the camber plates use a standard bearing size and then a bushing to fit them to the strut. You should be able to take your measurements to a machine shop and they can make a bushing to fit, assuming that you can't just find a bushing that will work already.

      I don't know if you'll find off the shelf camber plates that have a big enough bearing. I thought most were 5/8"/16mm. But I really haven't looked around at all, so I don't know for sure.

      But is it just the picture or is that bent?

          Most camber plates have a 18mm id bearing.

            Can the shaft be turned down to 18mm?

              I dont have a lathe, but I don't see why it couldn't be done.
