The S197 is a much better starting platform as far as handling goes. With that said, its got a fat *** and is a good 400lbs too heavy in stock trim.

05-10 S197's don't need full Caster/Camber plates for a 1.5" drop. Most customers get by with Eibach Camber bolts and do just fine. Unless you're a serious auto-cross or road racer, the Camber bolts is a nice affordable option.

The reason I said they're another story is because full CC plates are practically mandatory for 79-04 Mustangs to have a proper alignment with 1.5" lowering springs. That's all!

If you have more questions about your suspension setup, let me know. I'd be happy to help you get situated!

They're pretty simple to install. If you can install a strut then it's apart of the same process. However, you must take the car to get an alignment directly after the install. Without one, it won't take long to cause uneven wear on your tires and possible have the car pull in different directions in a straight line.

There's also install guides on our AM site under the caster camber plates product page. They're great for step by step instructions!

You should be running thinner than a 275 on the front btw, definitely for a 9" rim. 255 or 265. Heck even a 245 would work but might have to go up to a 40 sidewall. I've got 265/40/17s on my 17x9s up front and they definitely lip out too much but I do not even come close to rubbing at full lock.

yeah that's what I was thinking, the guy I bought it from is was running 275 on front which I thought was a little wide lol, just don't want to have to roll fenders or anything! Next set of tires will probably be 255 or 265.

Honestly 245s should be just about flush with a 9" wide rim. 255s are what came stock on my 95 with the 17x8" rims and they bulged out a good half inch from either side at least if not more.
