Is this a good deal?

Brand new in box SR performance caster/camber plates and a set of Eibach pro series lowering springs (used) for $110.00 all in.

Are the SR performance plates any good?

The SR plates are crap and a death trap. There was someone on here a while back that had them and they were rattling loose on him no matter what he did. Skip the SR plates and pay a little money for Maximum motor sports ones. I also wouldn't buy used springs. But that's just me. They're probably fine but you have no way of telling if they're worn slap out or not until you install them.

DO NOT GET S&R CAMBER PLATES

I made the mistake by buying them a little while ago, they are noisy and cheaply made and the bottom bracket broke on me, just a big pita. I got upr products camber plates now, i would highly recommend them.

No SR!!! Personal experience with them. They sound like your strut is going to come thru the hood on every bump. Get Maximum Motorsports and nothing else.

What everyone else said...you don't need caster/camber plates with Eibach Pro springs...total waste of money...I've helped lower three 11/14 Mustangs with Pro springs and non of them needed caster/camber plates. I also lowered my 14 TrakPak and a 2011 with the Sportlines and didn't need caster/camber plates. My alignment is within Ford Specs and so was the 2011.
Just a word to the wise....never buy used suspension parts if you value your life or ones that ride with you.....IMHO

Ok I won't get the plates.

I just confirmed that the springs are sportline S. How much should that lower my car and is it necessary to have camber plates for these?

Hard to say since they are used...maybe 1.25 to 1.5 on all four corners.
No, you won't need plates.

Eibach springs give a really nice drop.
Especially after one of the coils breaks off!

I would think you'd give the OP a swinging deal on those used Sportlines!

That photo is from PolarBear's thread titled "Is there anything better than Eibach?"
I don't know how old that the springs are but if you Google "Broken Eibach springs" you will see that PolarBear is not the only one who has had this problem.
Apparently, Eibach has opened a manufacturing facility in China, so rather than the fine German springs that the company has built it's reputation on, they are likely all produced in China now.

Just as a side note...Les Schwab Tire Centers no longer sell anything Eibach because of liability issues...they now only sell H&R.
