► APEX | Camber Plates for Street, Track and Race



Camber Plates Available at APEX

We have helped the enthusiast community for years find the right camber plates to complement their street or track wheel setup. Selecting the right camber plate can be frustrating with all of components and options to choose from so we took our years of experience and developed an easier way… simply select your chassis, your intended use and order with confidence.

We chose Ground Control Camber Plates for many reasons. Ground Control has been building world-class street, autocross/track, and full road race suspension setups since the 1980s. From camber plates and adjusters, to complete bolt-on coilover kits, Ground Control has designed and built setups for hundreds of different chassis and applications. All Ground Control camber plates feature a proprietary bearing, made to their specs by Aurora in the USA, which allows for articulation of the shock shaft. These spherical bearings are very under-stressed, as the Ground Control design does NOT support the weight of the car on the spherical bearing. Instead, the weight of the car is supported by a completely separate articulating needle bearing, which is also manufactured for Ground Control in the USA.

Street, Touring & Race Camber Plates




1. Street Plate
If you enjoy your car predominantly on the street, these plates are for you. These are ideal for those who carve back country roads, push their luck on the occasional freeway on-ramp, or attend a few autocross or high performance driving events (HPDEs) per year. They use a urethane bushing instead of a solid metal bearing to support the strut, so they transmit far less noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) vs. the Race plates. If you want negative camber without the metal-on-metal suspension feel, these are right for you.

2. Touring Plate
Available for newer BMW models, Touring plates provide a broad range of camber and caster adjustment to ensure your alignment settings are ideal for any track or race environment. These plates are a new Ground Control design, specifically for newer F-chassis BMW models, and they can fit OEM springs, as well as 2.25,” 2.5,” or 60mm coilover spring diameters. Like all components engineered to maximize performance, some additional noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) may be experienced, although it will be extremely minimal with this new design.

3. Race Plate
Race plates provide a broad-enough range of camber and caster adjustment to ensure your alignment settings are ideal for any track or race environment. Ultimately, Race plates are best suited for drivers who prioritize performance and a direct steering response over all else. Like all components engineered to maximize performance, the genetic makeup of race camber plates may induce noise audible in the cabin. This is similar to the decision many people face when choosing between OEM flexible rubber bushings or solid polyurethane. Most customers prefer the adjustability and solid design of the race plates, and are happy with the trade-off.

The Positives of Negative Camber


If you enjoy driving your car in a direction other than straight, you'll feel the beneifits of negative camber immediately on your first drive after installation. Dialing-in negative camber increases your tire's contact patch during cornering, which means more grip, less outer tire wear, and ultimately, faster lap times. And these beneifts aren't limited to track use, you'll notice them every time you drive your favorite on-ramp or mountain road. We can go on for days about the benefits of negative camber, and we do! Check out our technical article.

Coilovers aren't required. Ground Control Street Camber Plates can be configured to work with lowering springs like H&R, Eibach, etc, or even your OEM springs. Send us a message or give us a call with any questions.

Excellent questions. Every part of these plates is replaceable. Also, the touring plate is only available for the newer F-chassis cars, starting with the F30, we'll update the OP, sorry for the confusion!

The urethane bushing used in the street plates is replaceable and can be ordered directly through Ground Control at a cost of around $7 each. Typically these bushings will last the life of the car, but if the car is driven hard day in and day out for many years, they may begin to wear.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions!

Adjustable camber plates do more than just aid in wide wheel and tire fitment. They provide increased grip and reduced tire wear by spreading the load evenly during cornering.
