Ground control... mine has been perfect and silent for the last year / 10k miles. Iíd 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)

Call ground control and ask.

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.

What about Stock Adaptive suspension but with the M Performance HAS kit? Still stock diameter? 60mm?

Changeover is 01/2015+ for 5-bolt. Those with productions dates close to cutoff should always inspect to be 100% certain.

I went with one of the other brands. Since you really donít see them, set and forget.
