These are our steel weld in camber plates for the 240Z, 260Z and 280Z. Designed with the same profile as the factory upper strut top, you simply cut the factory strut top out, leaving a 1/8" rim and weld these in place, creating a new strut top.
The bearings on these are inserted into the aluminum blocks with what is called an "interference fit". What that means is that the holes that the bearings go into are actually a hair smaller than the bearing going into them. What we do is freeze the bearings and heat up the aluminum blocks to 200 degrees. This makes the bearings shrink a bit and the blocks expand a bit, and then they slip right in!
Once the temperature equalizes on both, those bearings are IN THERE! They will not move around or cause you any "clunking" noises. They are also held in by a keeper ring, to ensure they don't pull out of the bottom of the blocks.
If you are running our T3 coilovers, you'll want to check out our Full Upper Hat System for 2.5" coilovers for use with our T3 camber plates! The needle bearing upper hats are pretty much the only way to mate the camber plates properly to coilovers.
Swivel hats are required for use with coilovers.
Now functions with our strut brace specifically designed for these camber plates.
