Vorschlag Plates & Ohlins R&T

I have Ohlins R&T and i plan on getting Vorschlag camber plates. Ive heard they don't fit the stock Ohlins spring. Is this true? If so which springs do people use instead? Thanks!

I am running ground control street c. plates with ohlins. No problems in 3years. On the other hand, i had vorshlag plates before, and had to rebuild them often

They do fit. I am running Vorshlag camber plates (linked below) on ohlins coilovers, with the ohlins springs.

http://www.vorshlag.com/product_info...roducts_id=535

The ohlins coilovers use an OEM diameter spring, whereas most aftermarket coilovers have a smaller diameter. You can run the vorshlag camber plates made for OEM struts and they'll have a perch that work with the ohlins coilover springs.

Alternatively, you could switch to a different spring and run a different perch on the vorshlag plates. A lot of people seem to like swift springs.

How often do you mean you have to rebuild the camber plates? I knew coilovers need recalibration from time to time, but CPs?

Vorshlag camber plates have spherical bearings that start making clicking noise sometimes. Which means those bearings need to be replaced.
Happened to me twice.
I replaced vorshlag with GC plates, same car same suspension set up, never had problems again.

Interesting.
How often did you have to change the bearings?
Which GC do you have now? Street or race?
