like i said before you dont really need em. i have rokkors and i dont use camber plates and my negative camber is not noticeable i use 328 front top mounts i had my car slammed and the negative camber was still very little but the offset on my rims is around 42 if im not wrong, so your camber will be more noticeable just like eurohb car when he had the bbs rz rims on his with the rokkors

Mods: 325is zender spoiler, 3" carbon fiber antenna, 5% tints rear windows, black out grills, Fogged air intake, Ds1 wheels, Rokkor coilovers, bilstein rear shocks, blacked out tails and home made angel eyes

Just get em for the E36 and you'll be fine.

A note about the ti rear suspension. It's not adjustable, so when you slam it the camber and toe go way out of whack. There are weld in adjustment kits, just a PITA.
Just a question in regards to ^, coilover install and post alignment. After a Ti coilover install, although I know this depends on how low you go, and what the car is used for, are factory alignment specs. generally ok considering the rear is not adjustable and the front, when not outrageously low, shouldn't be effected by camber? Or are there advisable post coilover alignment specs. (or a loose guidline) posted somewhere on the forum?

All they can adjust is front toe. So have them set the car as close to spec as possible for front toe.
