Those won't work. The ti used an E30 rear suspension, and it doesn't have lower control arms like that. They are lower trailing arms suspended from the K member. I don't know why that eBay listing shows them as fitting a 318ti. There's no place to connect them.

By the way, welcome to the fest!

AKG makes a kit for camber, toe or both on the E30/E36ti rear. Search "E30 rear camber kit" on their website, since it doesn't show up under "Catalog".

The kit requires welding and grinding, and the use of eccentric bolts (included), and is not a typical DIY project

Text from their listing:

Rear camber and toe correction kit, weld on
For BMW e28, e30, e32, e34, e36 318ti, Z3
CNC laser cut and bent brackets. Factory BMW hardware.
Set of 8 brackets and 4 bolts with hardware.
Professional installation recommended

Price: $130.00

I've installed them, and it's a lot of work, but worth it (according to the person I did the work for)
