BMW E36 M3 Camber / Caster Kits

BMW E36 M3 Camber / Caster Kits The camber setting in your alignment is one of the most crucial aspects of your suspension and the overall driving experience. Unfortunately, most BMWs do not have a camber adjustment in the front and a limited adjustment in the rear. This can be frustrating because camber comes into play whenever you make changes to the suspension or when you want more negative camber for more grip and better handling. There are multiple reasons to adjust camber -

•  You want more front end grip to reduce understeer and create a more balanced handling scenario,
•  You have lowered the car and need to reduce negative camber due to inside tire wear
•  You added wider tires or wheels and need extra clearance to bodywork,
•  Your car was in an accident or collision and the camber setting is now wrong. Note: there may be other factors to this situation and we recommend finding the root cause rather than a quick-fix.

We offer front fixed or adjustable camber plates or camber/caster plates, rear adjustable camber arms, and rear adjustable camber bushings from KMAC, Vorshlag, and also our own designs to fit your specific needs. In most cases, these adjustable camber kits are a direct replacement for the stock BMW part, enabling a seamless upgrade. Adjustable camber can be dialed-in using ordinary hand tools and most kits have reference marks for consistent and repeatable adjustments. No drilling, slotting, or welding required! Some kits perform specific functions and fit with specific types of suspensions (stock, stock-type, coil-over, etc). Give us a call if you need guidance in selecting the best camber plate option for your particular suspension or situation.

IRP Adjustable Camber/Caster Plates - E36 BMW

**For vehicles with stock style springs**

When looking to dial in your steering geometry and alignment for reduced tire where and/or better track handling, the stock suspension is quite limited. To fix this, you can install Camber/Caster plates such as these plates from IRP. Camber/Caster plates allow for adjustment of the top position of the shock's mounting position. These slight adjustments have a huge impact on the stance of the of the wheel when driving straight down the road and when turning into a corner. With simple adjustments, you can increase the grip of the tires in hard turns, improve tread life, or even just make an alignment correction for a vehicle with a lowered ride height. 

The IRP Camber Caster plates are made of an aircraft grade aluminum body, for strength and low weight, with an adjustable mounting plate that utilizes a steel monoball mounting point. This makes the plate resistant to corrosion and prevents deformation even with the stiffest shocks and springs.

Features:

  • Decreased understeer
  • Decreases outside edge tire wear
  • Aircraft Grade Aluminum Construction
  • Steel Monoball and Mounting Sleeves

Fits the following BMWs:

KMAC Stage 3 Street/Track Front Adjustable Camber/Caster Plates - E36, E39 (not M5), E46 (not M3), E60, E82 (not 1M), E9X (not M3), Z3, MZ3, Z4 Location: Front
Type: Street/Track, Stage 2
Bearings: main PTFE-lined pillow-ball bearing suspended in polyurethane; self-lubricating radial axial bearing/bushing in upper spring plate
Springs: includes OEM size upper spring perch, 60mm upper spring perch, and 2.5" upper spring perch

The Stage 3 KMAC plates are a mixed track and street camber/caster plate meant to be used in a variety of suspensions and setups. Since there is less bushing than on the Stage 1, more noise and vibration will reach the driver. The adjustment design is similar to the Stage 1 with a floating mount that sets camber and caster simultaneously. This design allows maximum range of adjustment since no other hardware interferes with the adjustments. These plates can work on both coil over and stock-stype suspensions and upper spring perches are included for OEM springs, 60mm, and 2.5" coil over springs. The upper perch assembly incorporate a self-sliding radial bushing that allows the spring to spin during its travel instead of bind. This reduces tension on the spring and helps reduce noise and spring 'popping' noises. Bearing inserts, spacers for correct articulating angles, and 3 sizes of upper nut adapters included. The urethane bushings and bearings are replaceable if they wear out. These are designed mainly for adding negative camber for improved handling and not for camber correction back to stock settings (see Stage 1 kit). Basic instructions included but professional installation is required.

Note: suspensions vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The proper stacked height and clearances are required. K-Mac includes bearing adapters, spacers, and various top nuts but it is still the responsibility of the installer to ensure a correct and safe fitment. As with any race-derived component, additonal fabrication may be required.

Turner Motorsport Street/Track Front Fixed Camber Plates - E36 M3 1995

One of the tricks for getting your BMW to handle better is to add negative camber to the front wheels. This will put more of the tire's width in contact with the ground during cornering. With more rubber there is more grip. BMWs typically have less camber in the front to create understeer. But if you're running a stock setup on the track or autocross you are giving up speed and time as the front tires run out of grip sooner than they should.

Increasing the negative camber of your 1995 E36 M3 will reduce understeer and prolong the life of your tires when used on the track. These plates simply bolt on top of the factory upper strut bearings and increase negative camber by 2 degrees. We maximized the available camber available with a stock-diameter sized spring. Vehicle height in the front will be raised by .25". We also added material to the surface area of the mount to increase stiffness of contact area, therefore reducing the strut tower deformation and increasing the strength of the strut towers. Fixed mount camber plates are legal for many racing and autocross classes. These are the perfect camber solution when adjustable plates are not allowed in your class.

Turner Motorsport Track Front Adjustable Camber Plates - E36, Z3 The custom-made TMS adjustable camber plates for the E36 provide up to 4 degrees of negative camber (caster is not adjustable). These beautifully made aluminum camber plates have solid no-play spherical bearings that are ideal for racing or high performance track events. These camber plates are nearly identical to the BMW Motorsport version with a few TMS improvements (including the price). These units replace the rubber upper strut bearing and are easily adjusted by loosening the 3 factory nuts and sliding the camber plate in and out. Because of the clearances between the spring and the body of the car these are suggested for use with coil-over front struts using a 60mm, 2.25" or 2.5" ID race spring.

Turner Motorsport Camber Arm Rod End (Replacement) - E36, E46, Z4 Our Rod-End Camber Arms deliver the ultimate in precise camber adjustments and a free-motion design, thanks to the finest rod-end bearings available. We use high-quality stainless, PTFE-lined bearing joints made by the best manufacturers in the business. These bearings are self-lubricating with a PTFE fabric liner for long life and quiet operation. The bodies and threads are heat treated stainless steel. Without spending hundreds of dollars per bearing, these are the best on the market.

Over time, and depending on use and application, the bearing can develop play which does not adversely affect the performance but will make a "clicking" noise. We have a spec tolerance of .015" before recommending replacement. The bearing itself will continue to rotate freely and the camber arm will function as normal. But should you want to replace the rod-end because of the noise, or to meet track inspection requirements, we offer this replacement end. As far as we know this rod-end fits only our BMW rear camber arms and no other brand, although it may have other applications. Price is per rod-end.

KMAC Stage 1 Street Front Adjustable Camber/Caster Plates - E36, E39 (not M5), E46 (not M3), E60, E82 (not 1M), E9X (not M3), Z3, MZ3, Z4 Location: Front
Type: Street, Stage 1
Bearing: captive-ball fully encased in polyurethane

These front adjustable camber/caster plates will replace your stock front upper strut bearing. The KMAC plates are a 'floating' design so camber and caster are adjusted together. This design allows maximum range of adjustment since no other hardware interferes with the adjustments. Since these replace your stock strut bearings they are designed to work with a stock-type spring only. And when installed correctly will not significantly alter ride height. Adjustment is easily done by loosening the three nuts on top of the tower and sliding the camber plate into the position you want, then re-tighten the nuts. These mounts can be installed two ways - for camber correction or swapped side-side for increasing negative camber. Detailed instructions included.

Note: suspensions vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Turner Motorsport cannot be responsible for fitment issues caused by non-stock or specialized coil-over suspensions. As with any race-derived component, additonal fabrication may be required.

Turner Motorsport Street/Track Rear Adjustable Camber Arms (Pair) - E36, E46, E85

Top seller! The Turner Adjustable Rear Camber Arms: The Only Adjustable Arms Approved for Grand-Am Continental Tire Challenge Racing Series

Why you should use Turner Motorsport camber arms on your car:

  • If you have a lowered car and have run out of adjustment with the stock camber arms.
  • If you have a track car and are looking for increased camber adjustment, light weight pieces, stronger components, and improved suspension handling
  • Two bushing styles to meet your needs: solid rod-end for track-only use, or rubber bushing for mixed street/track use (approved by Grand-Am!)
  • The high range of adjustment allows a full racecar setup or a heavily lowered car to maintain factory specifications.
  • Only high quality and high strength materials and components are used
  • Aluminum camber arms are designed as a lightweight component, thereby reducing wear and tear on other, more critical parts (rear subframe, control arm bushings, etc). Each camber arm weighs only 2.5 lbs making for a total of 5 lbs for both parts! Stock camber arms weigh 3 lbs each. We have seen competitor's arms that weigh twice as much!
  • Hardcoat anodized aluminum, stainless steel turnbuckles, and stainless rod ends to all but eliminate corrosion from getting into the threads and making adjustment difficult.
  • CNC-machined double shear design for ease of installation, high strength, and choice of outside bushing material. But we do suggest using with (outer bushing # 33326775551) for best performance.
  • Easy adjustment - our main adjustment point is on the outside by the wheel so there is no need to work around the exhaust or subframe to adjust camber.
  • All hardware included.
