Default FOR SALE E46 M3 Turner Motorsport Adjustable front Camber / Castor plates Top Mounts

I am official Turner Motorsports (USA) UK supplier, specialising in the E46 M3.

Here I am offering a brand new pair of Turner Motorsports adjustable front shock top mounts for sale. They fit the E46 M3 2001-2006 Coupe and Convertible. Can either be used with standard OEM shocks or any after market shocks that can run with stock Top mounts eg KW, Bilstein etc. They allow you to adjust both Camber and Castor from top of the car to really 'dial-in' your suspension settings. Also referred to as Camber / Castor plates.



-1.2 - -3.85 degrees of Camber adjustment plus castor adjustment too. A lot of adjustable top mounts only allow Camber adjustment, they don't allow you to adjust castor as well like these do. Changing the camber drastically effects the way the car drives and turns in.

Yours for only 495 delivered (UK mainland). Brand new in the box with fitting instructions


Many people over here run them on their suspension and rate them very highly. They are a massive improvement over other aftermarket top mounts. The bushing in the top makes them very compliant on the road and they are a must for anyone wanting to do a track day or for spirited driving. Only by dialing in your Camber AND Castor will you get your car handling truly right.

Info on them from Turner to read:

Turner E46 M3 Street Camber Plates - General Information
Race camber plates (with solid spherical bearings) are great for the track, but what if you want to drive your car on the street too? That’s what the TMS E46 M3 street style caster/camber plates are: A plate you can use on the street, still have the available adjustment of a race camber plate, and not have to put up with a harsh ride or replace the bearings every season.

The E46 M3 STOCK strut mount only allows about camber adjustment and no caster adjustment. For most track cars or street cars that occasionally see the track, that is not nearly enough. The stock strut mount is also set at an angle that is suited only for that position, and puts additional bending load on the strut if it is not in its original position. The TMS Caster/Camber Plates allow significant camber adjustment from approximately -1.2 to -3.85 and allows for the needed strut angle change.

***Note: Each car’s suspension setup/geometry/ride height will be the limiting factor on range of movement.

Our Plates directly replace the stock strut mount, and incorporate a replaceable custom designed urethane bushing. The stock spring perch and bearing are retained in the assembly, allowing this part to be used with stock or aftermarket struts, such as a Bilstein PSS9 kit. Basically, this is a must for any one who will be auto-crossing, going to track days, or doing any performance driving, and still needs their car as a daily driver.

Made in the USA Manufacturing Each part of the TMS caster/camber plates is CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum billet. All aluminum pieces were then coated to MIL-A-8625F Type III spec hardcoat anodizing. Each steel part was either powdercoated or nickel plated to QQ-N-290A Grade F specifications. High grade hardware is used and main internal threads are helicoiled to add strength and life.

The urethane bushing has been custom designed and manufactured specifically for this part and its required characteristics. It is now undergoing lifetime cycle fatigue testing. Real world testing was done using the red TMS E46 M3, and they are still being used.

Design
This product has been fully engineered and designed by Turner Motorsport R&D, in–house. The assembly is designed to directly replace the stock upper strut mount. Each piece has gone through stress analysis, and all movements were pre-simulated in CAD to eliminate any potential interference issues. The main goals for this product were:

Large range of adjustment while still allowing caster and camber to be adjusted from the top without cutting the strut tower. Cutting of strut towers significantly reduce their strength.
Maintain proper strut angle at any position by not pre-setting the angle.
Provide proper orientation with a replaceable urethane bushing
Minimize any noise associated with the urethane bushing

The surrounding casing and bushing (internal and external) have been designed to work together to allow the proper strut angle to be maintained during adjustment, reducing the bending force on the strut itself, while offering longer life, and proper dampening. This was done through Finite Element Analysis to predict flow characteristics in different situations.

A scale for camber and caster has been laser engraved on the upper plate which will always be visible for adjustment, and the upper plate is a full round circle to better distribute the force on the strut tower so it is not compromised. This has shown to be a problem on several BMW chassis, including the E46. This TMS part will not accelerate strut tower deformation.


I sell the full Turner Motorsport range for the E46 M3 including (but not limited to): Turner Rear Trailing Arm Bush (RTAB) Limiter kits, Rear shock top mounts, Anti-roll bar kits and the adjustable rear camber arms as well. Check out my other threads for details

Just a couple of quick questions, do you know if the front E46 M3 turner top mounts will fit E46 330i with bilstein struts?
Also, do you have any of the rear camber arms left?

Thanks.

Hi there. These top mounts are M3 only I'm afraid.

I have the rear camber arms in stock and they will fit your 330

Hi john.

Do these increase or decrease ride height at all, compared to OEM?

They decrease ride height slightly compared to OEM which is a good thing. It allows you to have more suspension travel when you lower your car if that makes sense?
