The pss10 use the stock top hats, so order the camber plates for stock top hats.

Curious, why the pss10 and not Ohlins or KW V3s? There's a lightly used set of ohlins for the same price of new PSS10s.

I had Bilstein on two other cars and really like them. I don't like the idea of used coilover.

I had compared the Ohlins with camber plates and Bilstein with camber plates, maybe $600-700 difference. With my skill set, i don't think i be able to tell the difference and just not necessary. Moreover, i read somewhere that both Ohlins and KW V3 needs maintenance in short mileage. Well, maybe those are in extreme track use.

KW V3 has lifetime warranty, same with the Bilstein. Ohlins do not.

When I was researching coilovers, I looked into this and found KW and Bilstein's Lifetime warranty is against manufacture defects for the original owner with proof of purchase from an authorized dealer. Both companies explicitly exclude wear and tear on their warranty policies. Up to them if your coils, for example, with 30k miles on them are leaking due to wear, improper use, racing or mfg defect.

I also tried looking for warranty stories online for kw and bilstein, it seems like a mixed bag.

I know a few that got KW V3s redone for no cost under the warranty.
