The KW camber plate stack height was off a lot so after testing the isolator. I recalculated the proper nominal stack height that accounts for the isolator deflection. I also reclaimed 5 mm of suspension travel that was lost. This was all so important to getting the right ride height and spring preload. These plates have 0.7 degrees of addition caster built in so I will be running 7.9 degrees caster.

A few pictures of the 2nd iteration of the camber plate modifications. I havenít put the studs in yet as I just picked them up. I post more in another thread when I finished testing the new setup and bushings.


Give TC Kline camber/castor plates a try, you will see about +9 degrees of castor!
