034 Negative Camber Strut Mounts

Rumor mill alert: I had heard about the possible development on vortex and confirmed with 034 that they are currently developing fixed position negative camber strut mounts. They are currently being tested on their shop MK7, S3, and MK3 TT RS cars.

Apparently they are supposed to provide around 2 degrees of negative camber but I guess we will see what comes out of testing.

The release date is TBD. Now let's just hope they aren't $$$$.

that would be good.
Dinan made this type of thing for BMWs, basically added around -0.7. It also added 1/8 to a 1/4 ride height. Their design worked with the oem mount. People claimed minimal added nvh.

Would think 034 would have to design a new mount top to bottom.

The MQB platform needs front camber adjustment outside of moving to camber plates. I have been hoping to see SuperPro release adjustable ball joints for the MK7 like on the MK6.

Fingers crossed there is a good option coming!

I would welcome another 1/8 to 1/4" ride height in the front.

And yes I can't imagine it not being a complete redesign.

yeah the dome for the oem mount would be hard to carry over.

springs are also a limiting factor on how much change can be provided. For my GSW with adjustable plates, I can't quite add -1.5 on one side due to spring rub on the tower.
edit:
you can see how close it gets even with coil over springs, here:

I think my stock springs may have larger od.

Acccording to the following response, it's not going to happen:

"Sorry, no adjustable ball joint in the works for the MK7 any longer as the packaging limits the ability to offer adjustment and proper geometry thereafter.

Kind Regards,

CSS swivels will provide additional (fixed) negative camber.

for $250 or less, they should sell well.

regarding adjustable plates, mine are quite tolerable though I'm riding on 15s and keeping the front suspension soft. The increased steering feel and response is a plus. might push others over the nvh cliff with 18s and aggressive setup elsewhere.

it will be interesting to see 034's approach especially if they're adding more than -1.0
