Can't really answer much of your question, but, the MM plates were the originals that Steeda copied for their version. They will give you 4 bolts so you will have a solid install, plus, I think they look pretty nice.

As for the adjustment, they appear to offer more adjustment range just looking at the pics of them vs the steeda. They will give you a world of different adjustment options over a stock plate. And, I believe they are like 30 bucks cheaper than the steedas.

Anyhow, just my .02. Wish I had more info on this topic. But, I will be going with the MM plates when I drop my car as well.

Thumbs up

The best as far as CC plates goes are Maximum Motorsports. They also on some years have a lifetime warranty.

i have a set of hpm 3-bolt plates on the 90, they didnt completely eliminate camber (b/c its dropped like 10000 inches) but they did a lot and i could see them completely eliminating camber on a 1.5" drop

I have UPR shark C&C plates They are of a excellent quality. I would highly recommend them.

UPR Caster Camber Plates 1994 - 2004 'The Shark' T-7075

UPR Billet caster/camber plates replace the stock flexible rubber strut mount bushings, allowing you ultimate control of the suspension geometry. New design manufactured from T-7075 Aircraft aluminum over twice the strength of T-6061 158.99

go with mm plates they are stronger and better than all the others out there, get the 4 bolt design also. They allow nearly twice the adjustment as all the others out there also.... the top plate can be fliped for more camber or left normal for a not so lower car, being 1.5 inches you can flip it and get amazing amounts of adjustment... they are expensive but they are very worth it.

Camber wedges are very old school used on antique automobiles and are not for performance cars. But if you want to use Model A technology from the 1920

They are nothing but a crappy cheap *** rig job at best. This was used years ago by import factories when they set up cars back in the McPhearson strut era of the 60's and early 70's


My best thought on wedges is " WORTHLESS"
