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!

well...that explains a lot...lol. Thanks for the welcome and the quick 101...is there an alternative to perhaps another camber option?

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".

http://www.akgmotorsport.com/catalog/catalog.php

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

#RTTC30F
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)
