Just found and installed some camber plates. I'm a newb at autocross, but after some research they seemed like a good idea. I love the results..i'm set at -1.7 degrees front and -.8 rear. The handling improved signifigantly in the corners, but it is a little touchier on the highway. 3k miles later and no noticable difference in tire wear. They are basically just a steel plate that mounts to the top of your strut mount. You have to remove the mounting bolts from the upper strut plate and use the included bolts to mount the adjustable plate to the strut mount and car. Fun mod for autoxing, and pretty cheap if you DIY. Not a project for unexperienced though...compressed coil springs are no joke. Was gonna do the rear, but decided to go to the H&R coil kit first.
