Camber Plates...which ones ?

I was wondering which are the quietest...? I don't want something noisy as I'm primarily driving on the street and ocassionaly tracking the car.

Lookign to mate up to Ohlins R&T

Cheers

Vorshlag. I have it on my DD with Ohlins R&T. Perfect combo. Silent.

I dunno if it was botched install or what, but my buddy had Ground Control with Ohlins R&T on 135i, and he had serious noise issues.

On my 135i i had Vorshlag c. plates and we had to rebuild them twice. Now i have street ground control c. plates and they are great.
I really think if any camber plates are installed properly from the get go, they will be fine, unless they came defective from the factory.
On my m3 i have TC.Kline plates and they are ok too.

They're all going to make noise at some point.

I've had both voshlag and GC and think the vorshlags are better built product and compatibale with lots of different set ups.

I didn't factor this in when choosing. I just got the ones that were the easiest to use and had the most articulation. But I also chose the ones that had the longest lead time on replacement parts.

The GC (street) camber plates I'm using with my coilovers have a large (~3") axial load bearing held within a plastic cartridge. It's not sealed though and dirt can eventually get in there but I don't think it would be a source for noise unless it was completely fouled up.

Just cleaned mine looking for the source of some front end noise and though there was some dirt and drag coming from the cartridge half interface there was no dirt inside. As suspected, cleaning did not solve my noise issues - must keep looking.

That being said I still like my GC's.

I have Vorshlag on my E36 M3. No extra noise.

I have KW with Clubsports also no noise.
