I have a feeling this is a dumb question but here goes....

I think my strut mounts are bad. I was checking american muscle for some and wasn't able to find any. I found caster camber plates which look like they go in the same place....r these the same things? Do they do similar things. I have 0 experience with either. Could someone send me in the right direction. Thanks mevo

Yes. The CC. plates do the same thing.
Probably, all that you need are the strut mount bushings though.
You can get them from Rockauto.

They offer more adjustability than the factory mounts.
If your car is lowered, the CC plates will allow you to get the alignment back to factory specs.

It was just detail spray I used to clean up the area because I had to drill an extra hole for the plate to work.

Actually it shows much more on dark colors like mine. Just have to keep up with it.

Simple green really helps to bring back the white. At first it just smears everywhere. But 10 paper towels later, should look pretty nice.

I wipe the engine bay down with a degreaser, detail spray, then I spray black plastics, and the engine down with Wd-40 and wipe it down and it looks super clean!
