no because if you knockout the nipple on the top strut mount you get some adjustablity. But that is in some cases with sport springs however race sping setups may need camber plates. If you have the money buy the camber and caster adjustable plates if you track.

sorry , mine is the EIbach pro kit, so is it a sport or race.
and how do u knock the nipple out from the top mount??

So after u guys have lowered it, do u set the aligment setting back to default??
thankyoiu

I put Koni FSD's + Eibach pros with new RSM's in the rear. as far as i can tell, my alignment feels great. im going to get one next week though because it should be done after things have settled. 2 weeks or 250 miles ive heard.

I wouldnt get the cambers unless you go lower then 1.5 inches, so ive heard.

BMW told me " well i wont suggests any aftermarked suspension because you'll have issues with your alignment and rubbing" they have to say that s***! like repeated about 90% e46'rs lower without cambers. you'll be fine, just dont pay more then 150 or 200$ for an alignment and you are good to go!:thumbsup:

Heck I don't even have a drop and the guy said he couldn't get it aligned without having to knock out the nipple, but I just said leave it. He also said something about the rear adjustment being at the limit, and lowering would require adjustable arms or something.

it says to push your shocks to the inner most part of the slots. wouldn't that cause more camber? i would think they need to be pushed out.
push out away from the engine and u should get less camber...so yes you are right:thumbsup:
