do you need caster camber plates

Just received my new bmr springs and was wondering if you have to buy new caster camber plates. Our will my stock ones work. Springs will lower car by about 1 1/2 inches. Thanks

I went with the J&M adjustable ones, but the shop I had install them wasn't very fond of them. He said he thought they were kinda janky. Not sure what others think. He recommended I go with Maximum Motorsports. Curious of what others think

No you do not need caster/camber plates for 1.5" drop.
I put Eibach Sportlines on my 14 TrakPak car 7000 miles ago with and have no issues.
After putting them in and letting them settle I had the Ford dealer check the alignment and the caster was +7.8 degrees...Ford spec's say +6.4 degrees to +7.9 degrees. Camber was -1.2 after the drop and the Ford spec is from -1.5 degrees to +0.0 degrees. I've helped 4 other late model Mustang guys drop their cars also with BMR and Eibach springs and not one needed caster/camber plates and all were within Ford Specs after the drop....If you are going to track the car then by all means get the plates....the best plates are Steeda and Maximum Motors Sports.....IMHO
