Default 912 rear spring plates

I am looking to lower the rear of my 69 912, I see Elephant and Sway Away names come up most often when searching for adjustable spring plates - anyone have experience with these? Any opinions or suggestions appreciated.

You can lower your 912 by using the indexing splines on your own torsion bars....

I need to go about 2", won't that give the rear wheels too much camber like the lowered bugs?

Haven’t done the indexing process in a while, but I think it may introduce some camber, not enough to be close to the vow problem...
