Camber plate options

I can't believe with all these vendors and members that are on here, the only companies that made camber plates for our vehicle are out of business.

Really? They we only two? Come on, there has to be other options. There has to be something that could be made to work

on the most popular muscle car going on it's 6th year. I'd buy one tomorrow. As it is, you have to go to coil overs to get that option. Seems like a $$ maker to me.

I have coilovers, thinking about pulling them off to buy another set that comes with cambers plates I can get a set for OEM struts & springs

Keep an eye out for Ridetech... They had some really cool stuff at the fest on display... triple adjustable coilovers - high and low speed compression (bound) with single rebound setup with all billet mounting hardware... rumor has it they may have a camber plate in the works.

IT'S CRAZY, every other manufacture I have looked at sells them with their coilovers, Koni, KW, MeganRacing, Even a place I found out of the UK!

What really sucks is they are not interchangeable.

From what I recall, pedders will work with other coilovers, pfadt camber plates are specific to pfadt coilovers. I could be wrong though. Other camber plates will not work with all other coilovers. If you find something that is interchangeable please let me know.

I happen to personally know of a specific manufacturer's camber plates being in the process of being reproduced for another company.

I'd guess Pfadt camber plates are going to be released by Apex. Especially since they are picking up some of their other products. just a guess tho.

Our coil over kit has a camber plate. . .just not exactly what most people consider a camber plate. It's much more attractive yet allows you to offset the upper strut mount to gain more negative camber and spring clearance.

The only downside is that it currently fits only our coil overs. We designed the strut shaft a little differently than other manufactures which made it stronger, but more difficult to adapt a plate to.

Any pictures of said set-up?

Are you guys planning on making something for use non-ridetech coilover users? just want to know if I should be waiting or keep looking?

My guess is Pedders plates. Pete designed the camber plate with I believe Bruce Raymond. I'm wondering if Pete owns the rights to the design and manufacture, or if Pedders AU does since he was part of that business.

Apex has stated the Pfadt coil overs are not coming back, so I don't see them making only one piece of the puzzle.

It will be interesting to see. Worst case I sell my Pfadts and buy a set of Ridetech's.

Remember that Pfadt had plates for factory struts, that's what i'm referring to. I'm not sure if that will happen or not, as that's currently in the early stages of evaluation. I just happen to be "somewhat" involved in production of another piece that was discontinued, and is about to be back as long as nothing crazy happens. As an enthusiast, I'm trying to help bring as many pieces back as possible, whether I personally need them or not.

Well you could borrow my car to make them fit other coil overs.
