Quick question guys, does anyone know anywhere who sells adjustable top mounts for the Mk3?

I see from Jam's post here Thread Linky that would need to chop top mount and weld a new plate on but questions would be:

1) Where to buy plate from/what dimensions to get machined etc.
2) How do you then interface with coilovers top mount?
3) Paul can you get me some pics of what Jam had done??

Cheers

Paul

Would you not rather do Jams suggestion of camber adjustable lower arms? Probably cheaper and a more viable option?

Ben,

I am going to do the lower arms but that only affects Camber.
Adjustable top mounts can affect Castor too I believe (may be talking absolute bollocks here!!) and it was just something I was loosely looking into at the time so wondered if anyone has done it as there are no off the shelf kits/

ahh ok I get you. Surely if you get the camber sorted, polybush, anti roll bar, rose jointed track arms your suspension set up will be pretty much bob on?
How badly does neg/pos caster effect a track car?
