New '14 Owner with lowering question

Hello everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Derek, and am in the Northern VA area. I just got my new 2014 Mustang GT last week and have already been bit by the mod bug.
Although this is my first time back in a Ford in nearly a decade, I could not be happier with the car so far. I Had a 2000 Mustang GT back in 2003, and have since owned a pair of Trans Ams Ws6s, 2 Camaro Z28s, and I just now traded in my 2004 GTO for the Mustang. I have been away from the Ford performance scene for awhile now, but am looking to learn a ton from you all, and hopefully lending some advice to others as well. Obviously been spending alot of time around the LS1/LS6 motors as of late, but am loving the power of this 5.0 beast so far. Here are some pictures of my car since I added the mods. Have also already a Roush axle-back kit, and am currently trying to decide on a lowering kit, and had a question for you all. I have decided that I want to go with the Steeda Ultralite springs, with koni str.t shocks/struts, and bmr adjustble panhard bar. Now here is my question for you all. I was orginally going to go with the GT500 strut mounts in order to use to 05-10 koni shocks/struts and eibach camber bolts, but I think it would just be a better idea to spend the extra $80 and just get the B&M camber plates from american muscle which they only make for the 05-10. Now, if im going to use the 05-10 struts, will I be ok using the 05-10 B&M camber plates? Do i need anything else to make them fit on a '14? If that set-up will not work, please give me some advice on similar priced options. Thank you so much!

Congrats on your new 2014 GT! We're thinking about picking one up, ourselves. It's hard to resist, to say the least haha.

As for your suspension- The 05-10 B&M camber plates will work perfectly with any 05-10 struts. Sounds like you're going to have a wicked suspension setup, soon. You'll be surprised how much better it will handle around the corners!

Let me know if you have any other questions. Just shoot me a PM and I'll be happy to help!

Shane

Sorry for the delayed response to your question! I came down with a wicked sickness last week and today was my first day back.

Let me check in with my guys on the Koni's today and I'll get back to you by this afternoon!

Evil2014GT,

No sweat! I wish we could get your business with the Koni struts/shocks, but they're on back order right from the manufacture. Hopefully someone else has a few left in stock for you though. Nothings worse than waiting on parts!

How do the Tokico HP's compare to the str.t? Do you guys have those in stock? Id like to get everything from AM if possible since the prices are hard to beat, and since im in northern VA I get everything you ship me within 24 hrs haha. Cant beat it.

The Tokico HP's are a very similar quality to the STR.T's. I think they're one of the most comparable two struts we have. I'm sure you would be happy with either!
