: : What are "front bearing hats" and how do they change the front wheel camber?

: The front bearing hats are the very top part of the front struts, that bolt at the shock tower. On 96+ M3s, you can swap them L<->R to add about 1-2 degrees of negative camber.

: I've found this to be a pretty good "compromise" setup. My street tires wear more on the insides now, but with same-size F&R rotating should help even it out. My track tires have nearly even wear (a bit more on the outside) - again rotating can even this out.

: And, no, I don't know the procedure :-) This seemed a bit too involved for me to DIY, so I had my mechanic do it while in for a track school tech inspection - took him about an hour.

: Cheers,
