Default Camber plates for FK Konigsport coilovers

Attempting to order camber plates for my FK Konigsport coilovers and need to know if they need 2.25", 60mm, or 2.5" spring perches and also whether they have tapered or squared struts.

The later of the two I can figure out by pushing one of the struts up into the engine bay. But the perch is not something I can eyeball. The product has been discontinued and is no longer on their site unfortunately.

Measure the diameter of your springs.

I was told it was too close to really measure well as all those measurements are within a quarter of an inch.

Not doubting you, but how'd you come to that? Thanks!

Pretty much all the German made coils = metric system. I used to have a set and went through the same info search you did for the same reasons. I sold mine and got KWs now however.

1/4" is huge. Stick a digital caliper in there and measure it. You'll be able to measure to an accuracy of 0.5mm or better. Or, take Chris' word for it.

FYI, 60 mm springs work ok on 2.25" perches. 2.5" is too much free play.

Sounds like they gave you length and circumference.
