will have to dig up the before photos, I am certain they are somewhere on my phone.

My only concern is these LCBs contain a welded joint, which looks well done, but could be a weak spot.

Currently running the following:
- SRS offset CAB
- e36 non-M3 knuckles
- 1996 e36 M3 control arms
- custom e36 on e30 ground control bastard kit that I made


Here's what my wheel currently looks like. I don't think running just the offset bushing is enough to push the wheel forward especially if you want some tire up front.

Looks pretty good.
I made my own LCABs to fix the hub/wheel well relationship.
Mine are mediocre, made by me and they have held up to a lot of torture testing. I autocross and track my car as well as drive it to and from work on occasion.
The ones pictures by SRS look to be better made than mine. They should be a great product.

How is the set-up working out after some time with it?

Would these work with 97+ m3 knuckles and brakes ?

It wasn't bad to drive with in all honestly. I felt comfortable doing about 70mph or so down the highway after I got an alignment. I didn't keep it on my car for long though because having this setup only offered me about 1 degree of negative camber up front.

Yeah they probably would. work with those too. Idk if you can use a non-m control arm or not though. When I tried without the m3 knuckle I needed the 96+ m3 control to get the wheel in the correct spot.
