Idk man, I don't really know if they'll be that big of an improvement. What all do you have done to the car?

Nothing much, tune Cai dual exhaust bullitt rims . I don't have much $ now but I'm really in need of suspension, so I thought this would be better then just getting a knock off suspension

Gotcha, then yeah definitely get some shocks and struts for those springs and an adjustable panhard bar and some camber bolts, way cheaper than plates

Skip the bolts. Do it right, and get the plates. Bolts can break and will do damage to the car if they do.

Why not camber bolts, you ask?

Read the link. Stock cars have broken them. Is the little extra cost really worth the chance?

I used to be an advocate for bolts also, but then I was brought to the light.

OP, you can use bolts if you want, they do the job for the alignment. But they aren't the most reliable.

If you do just the shocks and struts then you don't need any bolts or plates. Those come into play when you lower the car, same with the Panhard Bar
