Losing out on camber adjustment for aftermarket coilovers is disappointing.

Camber plates are used to gain more camber adjustment on MacPherson strut type suspensions only. The 3is has a double wishbone suspension in the front and a mulit link suspension in the rear (not MacPherson) so camber plates won't gain you anything.

the GS F is on our next to do list right after the IS is complete, very similar setup except for the weight and having a fork in the front. will be released very very soon.

I guess i'm the minority here, since I would only buy suspension so I can track my car and then drive it home comfortably.

jaznraz explained it very well as the difference between the two different types. Here is the link I posted up for our track series with inverted shocks, external reservoir so on.

That would be awesome!

I went w/ springs to lower my 4GS and keep the AVS functionality.

Okay I'll go back to the GS forum now.

Fork? ... lol, doesn't matter. Like you said, the GS is heavier. I'm not expecting to lower my car by much but weight savings and AVS makes this attractive. Really going back to the GS board now lol.
