H&R Springs

Just got in my H&R Super Sport springs. I'm gonna put them on soon with bike tubes no iso's. Am I going to need CC plates or can I get away with just camber bolts? I've read conflicting views on whether or not I'm gonna need CC plates. Anyone with these springs, what did you use? Here's a link to springs. http://www.americanmuscle.com/h-r-sp...ngs-96-04.html

ive never used camber bolts so I dont know but something will be required regardless. Some CC plates wont give you enough adjustment also so research that. I would aim for MM's 4 bolt CC plates.

Because they're thinner and will give it more of a drop. And bike tubes are more durable then things like duct tape or electrical tape. Or nothing lol. I don't want squeaks.

CC PLATES help If your front wheels are over sized. I had to use them. Stock broke apart

I got everything on today! It looks good and I will have pics tmmrw for before and after, but man 4 hours my *** haha it took like 7 hours man, we got the front struts with the springs on with no problem but my tie rod end was completely torn so I had to replace that, after that it was a breeze but them another problem came up, fml right?! Lol the bolts where the rear and the lower control arm connects to we're all boogered up and didn't want to budge for anything, had to run to Home Depot to get new bolts for that but to get the bolt out was a pain! It literally took like 3 hours just to get them out on both sides of the rear but I guess hard work pays off right? :p but the ride is great and better than ever! Going through tight corners is great, no more body roll or flew its just stiff all around and feels great! So happy with H&R super sport and tokico shocks and struts= a great combo! Every mustang should have them!!

I have h&r springs on mine. They dropped it about 1.75 inches. It has a good stance and a good tight feel to it. I ordered some cam bolts hopefully that's all I need for an alignment.
