So as much as I'd love to just go buy some BC Coils and max them out at -2.8 degrees to get some camber, that just isn't in the budget with a new baby at home. I was luck that my better half let me buy wheels, r-compounds, brake lines, and a tune. So I won't push my luck...well maybe I will next off-season :)

Anyway, for now I'm stuck with stock suspension but would like to be able to dial in more camber. Can anyone comment on the H&R camber bolts? Are people seeing -3 degrees (or up to) on an otherwise stock suspension?

Thanks.

I have camber bolts on OE struts with Eibach springs.
-3 degrees is pushing it unless you replace all four bolts.
-2.5 is about the limit with the recommended top two bolts.
I personally run at -2.

You should also check the specs on the tires you plan to use as they may also provide a maximum recommended negative camber.

I'll be using NT01's. I ran them at -2.7 on my M3, but that was really just by default as a carry over from what I ran my street tires on. The -2.7 seemed to work pretty well, I was seeing signs of "use" right up to the witness arrows on the NT01's so I felt that was a good amount of camber given my suspension.

Between -2 and -2.5 should really be plenty, but I'll see if Nitto has a recommendation.

Edit:
Did some googling, seems like Nitto is a little hesitant to offer up much, but there's what I've seen posted a few places:
