E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Rear camber kits

So I just bought the Ireland engineering rear toe and camber kit. Do I need special bushings for my trailing arm? Or do the camber bolts work with stock bushings?
I bought the specialty products front adjustable camber plates. I plan on buying some rota wheels tonight and very tired of replacing tires. Anybody done the rear kits yet?

You can use OEM or any number of aftermarket bushings. The adjustment is in the kit parts, not the bushings. I've install that setup. It works OK. Kinda finicky to set the toe/camber, but worth it once it's done.

What Rotas are you getting?

ROTA TORQUE 16" for the front and 17" for the rear. With new Bridgestone tires, he's taking them off a MR2 so im pretty sure I won't need spacers. 7" wide front and 8" wide rears. I'll take pics tommorow.

I have a set of Rota Circuit 10s, 16"x 8". I swapped set of bottle caps for them! Some ricer had them on his Honda and decided he wanted BMW bottle caps instead! I was like but took the deal.

Nice! Im gonna figure out if they fit without spacers or major mods tonight. But dropping the rear axle and welding for the camber and toe kit doesn't sound like fun.
