Strut mounts

Thinking about getting the ford racing adjustable struts/shocks and some MM c/c plates.. Do I need anything else to go w this? They say I need the gt500 upper strut mounts.. Do the c/c plates replace them so therefore I don't need them? Kinda fuzzy on how the c/c plates actually work

You need the gt500 mounts or the cc plates. FRPP doesn't have shocks for the 11+ so they are too short to fit the stock mounts.

You can't have both. Cc plates replace strut mounts. The big difference is adjustability.

You can get either one, but there isn't much sense in spending the money on the CC plates unless you need the extra adjustment in your suspension. Last I checked the FRPP mounts could be had for about $100 and the MM CC plates were over $350.
