    hi guys, im after some adjustable topmounts for shock and spring setup, not coilovers but can only find ones for coilover.
    iv was woundering if these would work http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E36-Adjust...item335d21a448 as it dosent state if for coilovers only.

    thanks.

    i got the blue ones, they seem quite all right. another user from here has the same ones, and seems to be quite happy with those, too. but the ad specifies that they will only work on coilovers, so beware.

    im going to be buying some coilovers soon, what is the benefit of getting these top mounts to use with them?

    From reading the ebay add above it says you can adjust camber and caster, but i thought you could do that anyway??

    Camber and castor is NOT adjustable on the front of a standard E36...

    Camber is adjustable on the rear though...
