e36 front suspension geometry questions

I just got coilovers and here is the scenario:

-control arms non m3
-Lcabs 95 m3 offset for castor
-spindles: 95 m3 for m3 brake upgrade
-sway bar 28mm with non m3 endlinks
-top shock mount: centered

So at my current ride height, everything is great.

I wanna install the coilovers but I want to get new top mounts, and I am afraid that if I use centered ones, the extra castor will cause my front wheels to rub the inner wheelwells when I lower it....

Do the 95 m3 top hats delete some of the extra camber??? or is it less with centered, or do I need to go 96 m3 inorder to move the wheel back to centered more??? Do the 96 m3 top mounts delete some camber too? I need the camber....and some castor would be nice....

Can someone chime in?
