Does anyone know which camber plates are compatible with these coils? I can't find any supplier that makes compatible plates.

yes, i'm saying i think what I thought was wheel hop ended up being a problem with the rears being too soft.

Good review. I was planning on getting a set of my late model DD at some point.

The R3V sponsor, Ground Control, has several different ones for the e30 that will work with generic coilovers.

I think that's a given, your car will perform way better with new suspension bits. Hell, even a stock e30 with refreshed suspension performs well but in regards to the JOMs, they are exactly as described.

So I have a question.
Are the struts shortened to compensate for the height?
Or are they always going to be compressed?
Markert Motorworks is reccomending a grab some height adjusted strut mounts to compensate, if the struts arent shortened.
Any thoughts guys?

I'm not really sure what you are asking. The shocks are stock length, there is no modification required to run these. How low do you plan on running these? All the way down? Then if you care how your car rides, get shortened housings. Leaving it at a reasonable height? Plenty of shock travel.

Rears with no adjusters and fronts probably most of the way down. what im really asking is, will it be fine to run on stock strut mounts with these?
The shock will obviously be compressed more due to the height drop, so should the shock be compensated?

Just don't drop it all the way down..

What rear tire size are you running? Wheel and tire specs?
