Ground control... mine has been perfect and silent for the last year / 10k miles. Id probably hold off and wait for a 4th of July sale to save some bucks.

Thanks for the replies. There's a couple of options for Ground Control camber plates:
  • Size (stock I presume, vs 2.25", 2.5" & 60mm)
  • Spec 3-bolt or 5-bolt?
  • Shock brand (stock)

Your car looks like it has a 5 bolt top mount, if it's a 2016+ it will be 5 bolt. 3 bolt top mounts were only made in the 2015 model year and it wasn't even all 2015s that had them.

Size and shock brand would both be stock.
