      Has anyone installed these? Trying to source a solid alternative to the mounts available out there. Mainly interested in the solid mounting with spherical bearing in these. The camber adjustment is also a nice feature:

      Keep in mind that spherical bearings are much better at handling radial loads rather than axial loads. There are three resulting approaches:

      1) Use spherical bearing in axial loading but replace frequently.
      2) Use otherwise greatly oversized spherical bearing in axial loading.
      3) Use some other means or bearing for axial loading and let the spherical bearing handle just the radial loading.

      If memory serves, the Ground Control plates use method #3 and work well. In my experience, though, the simpler spherical bearing types (e.g., Carrera) work fine and are usually designed to let you replace just the bearing quite easily (e.g., single circlip, etc.). If you get some that use a common bearing size, they can usually be sourced immediately/locally due to common interchange rather than having to wait for replacements to be shipped from the original supplier. YMMV
