suspension still popping after dealer fix

My GT is a 2012 with 8500 miles. I have the Eibach pro street S coil overs on all 4 corners. I was always getting this popping sound on the drivers side when pulling in to driveways or hitting bumps and slow speeds. Last month I took it to ford and luckily they said they would "fix" it even though the suspension was not OEM. They replaced the strut mount and it was fixed,,,,, well it sounded fixed but then it came back 2 days later. So here is the problem, I want to buy the GT500 mounts but no one knows if they will work with my Eibach coil overs. I called America muscle and also Eibach. Eibach told me to contact maximum motor sports and they wanted to sell me caster camber plates. Does anyone know if the GT500 mounts will work with MY coil overs.

More than likely not since the GT500 strut mounts are designed to be used on the struts with the longer threaded portion at the top of the assembly such as the ones found on 05-09 Mustangs and the GT500s. My 2010+ Eibach struts didn't work with them, but the 05-09 struts that I bought did work.

Yea I don't think the gt500 mounts would work because they're meant to work with 05-10 style struts like WhoDat said. Your best bet would be CC plates from Maximum Motorsports, J&M, Ground Control or BBK they're the one that make them for 11+ struts.
Btw how do u like the pro street S coil overs? I have them just haven't had time to install them yet!

I like the coil over a lot. Makes handling great. Of course the adjustability when needed is real nice too and real easy.

Do the caster/camber plates totally eliminate the strut mount? That would be the only way I see it fixing the problem
