Caster/camber plates

Best ones out there?


Got my car aligned today after I got my sportline springs put on and the guy said if you want the car perfectly aligned I would suggest some caster/camber plates. Opinions?

Maximum Motorsports seem to be the most popular ones that I've seen people use. Another common set is the Steeda plates.

The 96-04 Mustangs are much less tolerant to being lowered with the factory strut mounts, unfortunately. If you're going lower than a half inch, a nice set of CC plates is almost required.

I would say the best CC plates that we carry are the Steeda's. They're made from billet aluminum and designed to withstand severe track use!

Now a more budget, but quality CC plate that will work nicely with your build is the SR plates. These aren't as rigorous as the Steeda's, but will hold up to daily use and the occasional track conditions.

Both are good options for different reasons. I suggest finding what suits you the best!

There are some great step by step instructions with pics.

I'm doing mine but I'm an engineer and my car is a second car.

But yeah you can do it or pay someone 150.

I had a shop price me at $500 where I love and that includes installation and alignment afterwards. But that seems high to me..

Personally, I would go with the SR CC plates. The cost difference is very attractive and the SR plates work perfectly. Even with a good beating on the street. We use them on most of our AM cars!

Alignment should be 100...so 300 top top price.

Go to a Toyota dealership they have a full high tech rack and charge about 70 bucks for a full alignment.

That's what we do in Charlotte.

Find a small shop to do it around your place let them look at the instructions and tell if you don't want to do that for 200 bucks bye bye

The instructions are so good with pics a 10 year old can do it... Requires some muscle and finesse too though.

I got the Maximum Motorsports kit off AM. It was well worth the cash and is top notch quality. It's not hard to install either. You only have to drill 1 hole per side and the instructions that they include are 100% perfect and easy to follow.

I also did H&R SS springs and new struts / shocks and when I took it in to get the alignment, the tech was saying how nice the CC kit was and how easy it was to use. He got me back lined up in no time.

Maximum Motorsports is the leader in these areas and their quality is amazing. They have a PROVEN record of being the best.
