Well with the forum discount from AM you can get them brand new for $198 shipped so it all depends what sort of shape they are in and if you'd rather just spend the extra $50 or so for brand new ones.

With shipping its going to be like $15-$20 more so at that point i'd just buy new with warranty. They aren't hard to install but you'll need an alignment afterwards. I have them on my 98 and they are DEAD silent. No noise like the cheapie ones.

Well ended up buying them lol ,
It'll be alright,

155 shipped

Should be here soon

read the install is easy, hardest part it drilling the extra hole.

I'm going to do the alignment myself at work, so I hope it's not too bad, it looks pretty straight fwd.

Really needed these because I noticed my front tires have worn very bad after lowering my car, really bad camber wear

I wonder what's the difference between these and the SR ones

Easiest way to do it is sit the plates on the area to be mounted and take a really small drill bit and put it through the dead center of the holes and drill a tiny pilot hole, then remove the plates and go to the proper size bit and drill the real hole. When I did mine the holes drilled out perfectly like that at the right spots.

A write up would be awesome. My Mach is lowered too and I just noticed bag camber wear on the front tires so I'll be ordering the mm cc plates asap and installing them myself

They look pretty nice.. Although my engine bay looks way different than it was in this picture. Lol P.S. All those holes in there were there from the previous owner.. I didn't mess up drilling. Lol
