Well except for the fact that you will have to remove the springs all over again in the front, the J&M plates are the best most affordable option.

Take it to get it aligned as your toe in will also need to be adjusted.

Rob What's your opinion on the maximum motor sports caster camber plates?

The MM caster camber plates are a bit more expensive and also provide a caster adjustment as well as camber. Since I have a 4 bolt strut tower brace, the MM,s would not have worked for me.

That cause Ford tweaked the tolerances. For instance they say that anywhere between 0 and -1.4 degrees of camber is within range.

I too lowered mine and when it was aligned they mentioned that it was within tolerance.. It had the slight lean in look that most European cars use to come with in the 90's. In fact I believe to help the Challenger corner it too has a slight lean. But the bottom line was for moderate driving i was told there would be no issue. My Shelby is a DD and I average about 1000k a month (that is no typo or iPad auto correct) and at the 17k mark they were smoked. The tire was worn down one the outside 2/3rds.. And the insides looked new. So when I had some other work done I had the C&C plates installed. Since then I have put 13k on the new tires and they look great. So IMHO invest in the plates and pay once not twice.

The best way I know how to explain caster is , the measure of change of the vertical angle of the tire when turning versus straight line.

The shop I used outside of Philly ordered them from American Muscle. I am not sure. They are just down the road from them.
