    Hi i have a e36 323i coupe.

    I have just installed m3 evo offset topmounts. But swapped from left to right for camber, as advised im many places, and extra caster.

    But seems to me that they have given me too much camber. I have tried to measure with a bubble camber guage but it only goes up to 6degress and the bubble wants to go further. I have ordered a digital one now.

    Looks to me like i may have around 7 or 8degree on negative camber on front wheels.

    Is this too much?

    I have turned the wheel nearly to full lock and all the tread on lead wheel is flat on the floor. And thats what your aiming for for grip right?

    Front suspension set is-

    E46 LCA
    Offset poly lollipops
    Purple rack steering rack
    Extended track rods
    Modded hubs


    Any ideas?

    cos your LCA is longer , put them in the normal configuration , then get it aligned

    Then would i not loose my width and angle of lock?

    If i put the evo top mounts in the correct orientation left and right wuold that work? Or would that just counter the camber i get from the e46 lca becuase there offset towards the outside of the car then.
