Trying to decide on which shocks to buy with Ford Racing C springs.

I'm looking to replace the 200,000 km old springs on my 1999 GT with these Ford Racing C springs. Ford Racing Mustang C-Springs M-5300-C (79-04 GT, V6, Mach 1; 93-98 Cobra) - Free Shipping. If I get these springs will I need caster camber plates? I want to upgrade my shocks too and am looking at the Koni STR.T Orange shocks. I'm wondering if it's worth spending the extra money to get Koni Yellow adjustable shocks. The car is totally stock right now and is my daily driver in the summer months. It might see the drag strip once or twice a summer but that's it as far as track use. Another factor is I'm in Canada and our dollar sucks now:non ono: so the cost of stuff adds up super fast.

I just ordered the same springs for my 2004 GT. I'm picking up some CC plates just in case I need them. Better to have them and not need them.

My Bullitt came from the factory with C springs, and it does not require plates to align it.
I think that the orange Konis will be a good match for the springs.

I have a set of adjustable Tokico shocks/struts, and they work well for my purposes, but I probably wouldn't buy another set because I don't really like the way that they adjust.
I will likely go with Konis next time.

Koni STR.T's will pair nicely with the C springs. C's usually drop the car ~1.25" up front so it's very possible to get the caster adjusted using the stock plates. If you plan on going lower at some point I would install CC plates now.

I put Koni Single Adj. Sports (Yellows) in my Mach this weekend. I plan on trips to the drag strip and some light autocross so it was worth it to me to spend extra on the Sports. We also did SR Springs and STR.T's in my brother in laws GT and they are a very nice match to those springs. We took it out quick after the install and the ride was smooth and compliant.
