Am I on the right track?

That is a race plate and will transmit more NVH than the shaved Dinan parts, and will not work with stock diameter springs. (It's actually more than what Dinan gives, they shave the top hats by 6.35mm.)
I thought GC was making the middle plate to work with the OEM springs. Oh well.

So will the normal GC plate with the Dinan setup work.
