I don't need caster camber plates, if your just lowering 1 inch you can use Camber bolts, and maybe a adjustable panhard bar, and make
Sure to get it aligned when you lower the car. I'm on eibach sportlines 1.6front and 2.0 in back and all I used was the eibach camber bolts and BMR adjustable panhard bar and it aligned just fine, the bolts are only $25 and camber plates are $125+

The camber bolts allow for 1 to 1.5 degrees of extra camber when you lower you car. They will adjust it when there aligning your car, just makes it easier to get within specs

Re: What all is needed for lowering done right?

If your planning to go SCCA racing by all means lower it. If your planning to piss off your wife and make it so that she hates riding in it / your girlfriend roll her eyes and just know that every bump in the road is her head bouncing into the roof then go for it! but if you like/are not doing any of those and hate getting laid..because she wont be in the mood after riding in you LOUD bouncy jerking race car... Than SLAM THAT THING TO THE GROUND! just be careful not to rip off your bumper like I did on the way home from a date in my Saleen. I WILL NEVER lower a Mustang....EVER again!!

My input:
Op everytime u talk about those wheels... say silver showed me: -)

don't go w p springs u will not b happy

K springs w matching shocks n struts ride better then stock... don't listen to these people

I installed springs first and after I drove it a couple of days I then decided I need cam bolts and pan hard bar... only get what you need caster camber plates are ideal but koni or frpp or steeda shocks n struts are almost the same price depending on how hard u look...

K springs give u a perfect drop for all around performance... and the only way u will mess up your front bumper is if you don't know how to properly navigate rough road ways..

K springs $189
Frpp matching s&s $400
adj pan hard bar $125

those prices are new... if u buy used like I do u can almost cut that in half
