No rubbing, not sure about a difference in turn in, maybe a little more noticeable oversteer.

Eibach Pro Kit has the best ride height. Camber plates are not necessary, unless you want them.

No, I took it to a pro alignment shop afterwards installing it and they told me the car was still within factory spec. Of course I had them tighten it up to racing spec

ride quality is unchanged IMO, handling is a bit stiffer and a little less feeling of body roll.

I did search and found some conflicting info hence the question.

I see that most folks do Eibachs with E36 M3 bumpstops and then modifying the strut hats (shaving it). I have Ground Control Camber Plates with the stock system. Intend to use Pro Kit. In this case, with the E36 bumpstops and running GC plates be okay (especially since I cannot modify/reduce height)?

Thanks in advance.

Lutfy

GC uses Eibach springs for their kits so I'm assuming it will be OK, like I said before its a mild drop and even with the 15mm spacers up front I've had zero issues with rubbing. If you are runningt he shaved bumpstops and no spacers Im sure there will be no issues especially if you have camber adjustment capability.

Yep thats just the way the kit sits, the spacers really help out with the appearance though. I was very pleased wiht the stance.
