If you want to make sure that your tires wear more evenly, camber is a thing. A cheap way to allow for adjustment is to slot the bottom hole of the strut where the strut bolts to the knuckle.

When I eventually do lower my car I will be getting the Koni orange and either steeda, bmr or SR springs. My question is should I stick with the GT500 strut mount or get Caster camber plates? My only concern is how much more NVH the caster camber plates will make.

I can't attest to how much or how little NVH is created by CC plates as I don't have them. I only have the GT500 mounts and they don't make a peep. It's really going to be dependent if you can still be in or around oem spec for alignment. I myself like you, was weary about actually needing CC plates because I simply didn't think the drop warranted it. I lucked out and was still able to get re alignment within spec. Some others have had issues and have needed them. Another thing is, what will you be doing with with car? DD, road racing, dragging? Road racing id say get them because you'll need the adjustment. If it's a DD, go the GT500 route.

I will be DD'ing my car, but I want better handling. I don't want to just lower my car and have the same floaty feeling as stock...just lower. I figure Koni orange and a 1.25 to 1.5 drop would give me what I want. Its so hard picking springs because everyone has different opinions on handling and what they qualify as good. I've driven Miatas and other small sports cars so I know what the rail like feeling is all about...but the more reviews I read the more confused I get. Lol

SR's and koni str.t's (Orange) end thread/ lol. Seriously you won't be disappointed. GT500 mounts of course.

Too much conflicting info on a 1.5 inch drop. I knew what I'd have to get on a 1 inch drop. Debating on buying P springs(1 inch drop) or RTR springs (1.5 drop).

1" springs IMO are the way to go. You will have basically no scraping issues. You'll still be able to get in & out of driveways fairly easily. You can still straddle uneven roads with out scraping your mufflers, etc.

1.5" springs and you'll start scraping things. Not horribly but A LOT more often. That extra 1/2 inch is all the difference in the world.

The rear springs 05-14 are all the same, so fit doesn't matter.

But I BELIEVE the front springs are little different from 05-10 & 11-14.
So when you see a spring kit that says 05-14, you will probably need a new GT500 mount or CC plates. There are 11-14 specific kits that I believe fit in to the stock 11-14 mount properly with out the clunking afterwards.

GT500 mounts - only work with 05-09 shocks.
CC plates can work with either.

The difference between 05-10 & 11-14 is the length of the stud that sticks through the center of the mount/CC plate. 05-10 are long & fit through the thicker GT500 mount. 11-14 shock's studs are short and will only work with CC plates or 11-14 mounts.

Some good points here. However, the only thing I ever scrape are my relocation brackets on speed bumps. Everything else I'm fine with clearing, and I have some good inclines to deal with daily. Just have to be a SMIDGE more careful than normal lol.

There are other factors involved.. how much weight or how many people are in your car. What type of exhaust you have.. skinny ones like Pypes, Flowmaster, Heartthrob, etc. won't hit. But the point is 1" you can still drive the car normally with out worrying too much about scraping. When/if you do scrape its very minor VS. that extra 1/2 inch you will be scrapping a lot more often.

Oh I agree, I'm all stock exhaust wise besides an MRT KR axle back. The relo's are legit a few inches off the ground.

Sorry if I'm not getting this: I have Koni orange (11-14) that I haven't installed yet. Would I need 05-10 or 11-14 gt500 mounts? Just too much conflicting info that I've reading across different mustang forums

With those struts made for a 2011-14 you cannot use the gt500 mounts. I realize the gt500s used these in 2011-14 but they still utilized the 05-09 style strut. It's longer in the top which is required to use the gt500 mounts

One factor forgotten also, geographical location. Someone residing in say Arizona isn't going to encounter issues like I am in MA. It's all about pre planning routes beforehand. And honest to god, I rarely have to do that. If I can handle a 1.5" in MA with craptastic roads, I think anyone can lol. I get made fun of because it not low enough lol. It's functional and I like it.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic lol, but Springfield MA has THEE crappiest roads known to man. They don't repave the roads, they patch them, the holes open right back up. This winter, and the plows have destroyed the roads that much more. I'm just glad I have a beater this year.

And my point is, if I can handle the roads here, anyone can. A 1.5" drop is nothing compared to some of these stanced cars (which I think is dumb as hell btw) lol

Lol not sure bro. I know a select few who run them. They just don't seem to be popular for whatever reason.

So looks like I'm stuck with stock mounts then? And as you know their little bearings have a habit of splattering all over when you take the mount out, what's my best option here?

Caster camber plates at this point. It'll cost ya a little more than GT500 mounts, but you'll have adjustability, and they sure do look snazzy! Lol

Or, don't break the oem ones, and reuse them as others have suggested. Mine crapped out immediately, and I kinda knew they would. That's why I went the koni 05-09 route with the GT500 mounts.

Or you can sell your oranges and buy the 05-09's I just picked up a set of used Steeda CC plates for mine that are for the 11-14 only. I am still looking for struts...

Steeda is having a sell right now on Konis right now actually fyi.

I used the Koni yellows(11-14 model) with Steeda sport springs(1"-front/1.25"-back) and the combination is excellent, they really compliment each other in improving multiple areas. The great thing about the mild drop is that they lowered me enough to make a noticeable difference in appearance by minimizing the gap as well as better handling with the lower center of gravity. Another nice thing about it is the other suspension upgrades like relocation brackets, LCA's, UCA's, bumpsteer kits, ball joints, etc., don't have to be installed immediately to maintain a still properly functioning suspension setup.

The one thing I would say I regret is not going with the Ultralites because just that little 1/4" lower all around would have made the wheel/tire gap the perfect difference.

So I just want to make sure I have this right, most likely the OEM mounts will not be usable once you take them off and you should probably get the 05-09 GT500 mounts for my 2014 GT correct with my lowering springs?

Also, are the Eibach Sportline a comfortable ride for a DD? I don't want to go the H&R Super Sport route, I don't think they are that practical for a DD.

Yes to ur 1st question but make sure u know that 05-09 GT500 mounts only work with 05-09 struts & won't fit 11-14 oem struts.

You'd have to put them back together or get CC plates.

Does anyone have experience with the steeda heavy duty strut mounts for 11 to 14 cars? I've decided to run steeda sports (linear) with my koni yellows and I like the fact that they claim no increased NVH. My only concern is they have no caster adjustment (according to steeda we already have 7.5 which is a lot) and only 1° of camber. Is that 1° enough to get me well within spec instead of at the "edge" of spec? If not I'll get the MM plates, but I hate how you have to use the bottom part of the factory strut mount.

I used the Koni yellows(11-14 model) with Steeda sport springs(1"-front/1.25"-back) and the combination is excellent, they really compliment each other in improving multiple areas. The great thing about the mild drop is that they lowered me enough to make a noticeable difference in appearance by minimizing the gap as well as better handling with the lower center of gravity. Another nice thing about it is the other suspension upgrades like relocation brackets, LCA's, UCA's, bumpsteer kits, ball joints, etc., don't have to be installed immediately to maintain a still properly functioning suspension setup.

The one thing I would say I regret is not going with the Ultralites because just that little 1/4" lower all around would have made the wheel/tire gap the perfect difference.
Do you have any pictures? I thought about the ultralights but I read that the koni yellows actually drop the car .25 inches since the mounting bolts are lower. That would makes the Steeda sports sit at 1.25F and 1.50R. Did you find this to be true?
