TL, so I think when the time comes for me, I will most likely install GC camber plates at the same time. I like how you were able to remove/install the front springs without the use of a spring compressor by keeping the stock spring hats installed (I recently had a "near death" experience with those rental spring compressors so I would rather not use them ). Looking at your video, it seems that removing the stock hats and replacing them with the GC camber plates (before re-installing the new MP springs) should be pretty straight forward. I know the aluminum brace will need to come out, but that looks pretty easy as well.

Is there any reason why the camber plates swap would not work like I described? Is there any other detail (or tip) about the camber plates swap that I am missing?
