Any issues with not using the OEM spring pad? I have zcp but don't know if they used the OEM ones when they installed the SWIFTS.

Otherwise these linear springs are the best as far as body control (side to side in turns & up/down over bumps).

I personally would like to get the ZCP spring pads. Does anybody know the part number for those? When I try to look these up it only shows the base PN.

I'm using non ZCP OEM pads.

Btw, cool to see so many people going with Swift. They are great springs, love my setup.

Are camber kits necessary for h&r, eibach, or dinan? Really don't want to deal with all these adjustments and just a simple wheel alignment afterwards.

No you don't need plates. Plus I think you'll lose some of the drop when you add the plates tho I'm not 100% sure about this.

If you don't do the different bumpstops and guide trimming you will be essentially riding on the bumpstops after it settles. Here's a pic of mine from about a month ago.

2013 ZCP with EDC.
Is this just the front E36 bumpstops or do you do both front and rear?

Just the fronts.

The rear bump cushion could be cut down by 5mm to gain travel like mentioned above.

I have the OEM E90 bumpstops on with the Swift springs currently and my ride height doesn't seem as low as others I see on the forum. Could this be due to the small bumpstop?

No, the bumpstop does not dictate ride height.
