M3 Upper & Lowerr control arms with stock shocks?

M3 Upper & Lowerr control arms with stock shocks?

I am in the process of redoing my suspension....way to much power LOL!!

I have a wavetrac/Quaife LSD being ordered tuesday (havent decided on wich one yet) and I have M3 Upper & Lower control arms also on the way (already ordered). They say they add a additional .75 of camber.....On my stock setup I removed the adjusting nipple and I am maxed out on camber I believe .85 and wondered if the M3 arms add aditional .75 to the maxed out stock camber or to just the stock adjustment. What I need to know is can I install these control arms with stock shocks and H&R springs or woulds camber plates be needed, if so I will wait because I will be getting BC BR coilovers/hotchkis sport sway bars in a month, I know the stock shocks + H&R springs suck LOL!!

I just do not like waiting and want to install these control arms ASAP LOL!!

Doing the control arms with stock springs/dampers won't hurt anything. You won't notice a TON of difference, but it should be noticeable.

awesome, my bushings are shot lol! I am sure when I install the coil overs/sways will be a big difference.

Consider waiting to install everything at the same time. That will save time and money, and only require one alignment, instead of two.
