Turner Motorsports Adjustable Rear Camber Arms for Stage 3 and Uber Kits
Installing lowering springs on your E36 will result in increased negative camber on the rear wheels. In order to adjust the rear camber, you'll need to install a set of adjustable camber arms. Turner Motorsports offers two bushing styles to meet your needs, a solid Rod-end or Rubber Bushing end. The high range of adjustment allows a full racecar setup or a heavily lowered car to maintain factory specifications. Aluminum camber arms are designed as a lightweight component thereby reducing wear and tear on other, more critical parts (rear subframe, control arm bushings, etc) Each camber arm weighs only 2.5 lbs making for a total of 5 lbs for both parts (stock camber arms weigh 3 lbs each) TMS Camber Arms use hardcoat anodized aluminum, stainless steel turnbuckles, and stainless rod ends to all but eliminate corrosion from getting into the threads and making adjustment difficult. CNC-machined double shear design for ease of installation, high strength, and choice of outside bushing material. But we do suggest using with BMW rear trailing arm bushing # 33-32-6-775-551 for best performance (These bushings are included with all Pelican Uber Kits). Easy and simple to adjust, the main adjustment point is out by the wheel so there is no need to work around the exhaust or subframe to adjust camber.

Ohlins Road and Track Coilover Kits

Öhlins engineers say, "The ground gives better traction than air," so every Öhlins design has one clear goal: to maximize traction, cornering speed, and control! That is how you win races. Kenth Öhlin made a clear decision many years ago, that he would never give any product away free to teams in sponsorship. Not one thing. So, every team that you see winning on Öhlins is doing so through choice, not obligation. The fact that so many teams choose to decline free product to pay for Öhlins perhaps tells you what you need to know about the quality and ability of their suspension products.

The Öhlins dual-flow valve gives the same characteristics on rebound as it does on compression, thanks to the damper fluid having a consistent path of flow in both directions. This means that the wheel and tire can quickly and effectively resume their important position back on the ground, providing grip and traction. The new Öhlins R&T range uses DFV technology on every single fitment, making it the perfect upgrade for the enthusiast that needs comfort and agility in one unit. Because DFV opens more quickly and easily on minor road imperfections, ride comfort is surprisingly supple and more akin to an OEM strut than a coilover set-up. Over undulating surfaces, the compliancy of the R&T units allows the car to crest bumps and pot-holes, while remaining stable and in control. Traction is always maintained at its optimum level. When comparing suspension, why settle for second best?

Dampers get hot. As the piston moves within the damper, it generates friction - and therefore, heat. Although you can't stop heat, you can deal with it, and this is yet another way that Öhlins differs from the competition. As the heat increases, the viscosity of the damper fluid can change, altering the car's handling characteristics. Their unique needle bleed valve expands with temperature, closing the gap that the fluid travels through, maintaining a consistent damping rate. The part is that you won't even notice! All you'll feel is that the car responds consistently, lap after lap, turn after turn, allowing you to concentrate on braking points and apexes while the Öhlins technology takes care of the damping.

The damping rate on the R&T units is fully adjustable and ties compression and rebound together as a matched setting, meaning that in 99 percent of cases, the units will work superbly, straight 'out of the box' with only the smallest adjustments required to suit the car or drivers individual preferences. Despite what other suspension manufacturers may tell you, comfort is king, even when you are trying to set-up a competition machine. Öhlins' vast experience with events like the World Rally Championship and Isle of Man TT races has shown us that the fastest drivers and riders are those that aren't being shaken to bits as they go flat out. The 'science of compliance' is a hugely important part of their design work.

Dinan Performance Spring Set
Suspension systems that not only transform the stance of the vehicle but also maintain ride quality and improve upon handling are what Dinan suspensions are known for. This is accomplished by pairing springs sets with bump stops, spring perches or both to maintain suspension travel resulting in a smooth ride while also improving mechanical grip and handling. This is what makes Dinan suspension systems unique. While we are able to sell each component separately it is highly recommend that both the spring sets and the supplemental ride quality and handling kits are used in tandem in order to maintain the Dinan quality standards their customers are used to. Experience the Dinan difference with this combination and enjoy the ride it provides.
Dinan's Performance Spring set provides greater control over body roll by virtue of carefully calibrated spring rates. The Dinan springs are CNC wound with high tensile chrome silicon wire and shot peened for stress relief to last the life of the car. The increase in stiffness to the springs will reduce the rear suspension compression under acceleration and front suspension compression (or dive) under braking, giving your car a more controlled feel. The Dinan performance springs will also provide a noticeable improvement in grip, for high speed driving situations that will inspire confidence in your car's capabilities. The reduced body roll makes the steering more responsive to driver input.
Dinan Performance Spring sets should be purchased and installed with the corresponding Ride Quality and Handling Kit and/or Dinan/Koni Struts and Shocks to achieve the advertised ride height, performance, and ride quality. While not explicitly required, if the matching component is not purchased and installed you will get less than favorable results in the form of poor ride quality and improper handling traits.

Dinan Anti-Roll Bars
Almost all street cars come from the manufacturer with an anti-roll bar as it is a common part of modern suspension systems. However they are designed to be overly soft for maximum comfort. An anti-roll bar does exactly what it says by reducing body roll in all situations. Every Dinan tuned anti-roll bar is built and tuned specifically for each BMW chassis. Lowering the amount of body roll keeps your BMW more level than stock (while still allowing just enough body roll) to improve mechanical grip. This improvement gives the driver a much more planted and confident feeling in every corner. This Lightweight Tubular Adjustable Front Anti-Roll Bar may be added to the Stage 1 Suspension System for those who wish to build their high performance suspension in phases.
The Anti-roll bars may be added to the Stage 1 Suspension System for those who wish to build their high performance suspension in phases. The front and rear anti-roll bars must be installed as a matched pair.
