All Suspension Heads:


Patient is a 95.5 S6 with Eibach/Bilstein set up for over 2 years now.  In
about 12K miles of driving the inside edges of the tires was showing metal.
I am currently at a -1.3 camber on the fronts.  I have further slotted the
upper strut mounts and maybe have 2 or 3mm more before the mount hits the
metal lip.  Russ Sutherlin was most gracious and provided me with is
determination that the Igor offset of 4mm would change my camber by 0.267
degrees.  That however would negate the additional camber I would gain by
further slotting the upper strut mount.  My last set of tires cost @ $600
with mounting and balancing.


Short of going back to stock suspension (ain't happening), what's a guy to
do to gain around 0.8 degrees of camber?  After market camber plates are
most certainly a consideration if'n the will get me where I want to be.
