yea, so JRZ/Moton/MCS should all work, as long as you have the right perches.

For the front strut, a GC setup has a generic Koni shock in a custom threaded casing for the e46. This looks like Ohlins would replace both up front?

Summarizing, it sounds like we would:
Use the Ohlins front shock assembly and its perches (which I love for seperate spring and height adjustment)
Use existing front spring
Use existing front camber plate
Swap rear shocks, leave springs in place

..correct? Hopefully we would be paying a little less, since we're really just paying for four shocks and front perches.

With the Apex thing, I also got the impression we had to buy Camber plates and springs, so I'm stoked to get rid of the only two things I don't like about GC - Koni shocks and no separate height adjustment

Correct. The Ohlins unit would replace the damper and the lower perch. I am currently switching to MCS dampers from bilstein PSS and keeping the same GC street camber plates, you just need an adapter to do this because the shaft diameter is different between the two dampers. I'm not sure if that would be the case for the Ohlins.

I currently cannot disclose any details as everything is still in the works, but we should be able to share more details in about 2 week time frame. I will update this as soon everything is ready. Probably will be in a new thread though.
Updates?

Theres a bunch of questions I think haven't been answered . Are Ohlins using their own camber plate? Or are they supplementing a dedicated company IE: Vorshlag etc, to do the proper fitting camber plate? In for all info!

Have you gotten around to installing the street plates with the MCs? I have them for my jrzrs1 and there is a low speed rattle I canít hunt down.

Yea, it’s all set up. No issue with the camber plates. The dampers are amazing. The adjustments make a huge difference and the ride quality is surprisingly good considering the spring rates (448/840). It feels like a top quality suspension now. I haven’t tracked it yet but it has tackled a wide variety of road situations in the canyons with complete composure and predictability.

From my understanding, they are using Vorshlag. I already have those so I didnít get new ones with my setup. They are also using Swift springs. For mine, it was 5Ē springs, 672 lbs front, 896 rear, and a 223lb helper spring. Rogue rear shock mounts were also used but I donít know if that comes in the kit or not.

What else do you want to know?
