Hey, guys. Justin here. As you can see, actually working on my own car for once. It's a nice little change of pace. You guys always see me working on the project cars and the Bolt-on build-ups and all that stuff. Well, I wanted to let you in on what I'm working on with my own Mustang. I have mentioned my 1927 Ford a few times. I've been working on that at home of course, but I figured this was a great time to show you my main ride. Recently upgraded to the 2014 Mustang GT, track pack, some other little bells and whistles. Had to get the Recaro Seats, of course, which were a must. But anyway, we're doing some mods. Spring's just about here. So, it's finally time to start working on this thing. Concentrating on the suspension today, I'll show you guys a little bit more about that in a minute, but I had to get rid of that stock ride height. It was absolutely hideous. So, Ryan and I are working on that. But of course, I did take care of a few of the basic mods so far, so I got the C&L intake along with the Bama tune. C&L, just a great intake and if I can be a little cheesy here, the blue couplers do go nicely with those Boss coil covers if I may say. Also, I know it's a little silly, but had to get the hood struts in place. Just a nice mod to have especially when you're wrenching under the hood like Ryan's doing all the work right now. Just clears out a little extra space, so definitely a must have mod and then, of course, we did the exhaust. I actually am going with the quad-tip Magnaflow street series. They're already installed. I did the rear valance along with it which I had to cut the bumper up a little bit. You guys will see that of course, but I got a good game plan for this car. It's going to be a little aggressive, but I definitely want to go GT500 inspired, but I'm just going to have fun with it, see how it comes together. Now, we're actually going to concentrate again on suspension today and show you guys what we're working on. So, check it out. All right, guys. Definitely tackling some of the performance and suspension basics here today. For instance, we're installing the Koni STR.T shocks and struts along with the SR Performance lowering springs. Now, you guys hear me talk about those SR springs all the time. We use them on a lot of our project cars and I'm even trusting them on my own car because they're a great product. They give you one and a half inch drop on all four corners which I think is just right amount. It's not totally slammed, but again it takes care of some of that wheel gap and the STR.T's are great as well. The adjustables are nice, the Koni yellows, but for the basic use of just lowering the car, handling the lowering spring, giving you a little bit more of a sporty ride, the STR.T's are a way to go. The STR.T's are nice because you can use them with your factory top-hat or your strut mount and you don't have to use an 2005 to 2010 GT500 strut mount, but my case, I just really like to be able to dial in everything, so I'm going with the J&M caster camber plates up top here, which would really set off this package. All right, guys. Ryan and I just finished up the front. We've got the shocks in the rear, the springs in place. Now, we're moving onto the SR Performance Panhard Bar which we have installed already, but we're going to be making some adjustments and that's the important part with these adjustable panhard bars. SR does a great job, they offer double adjustability here because when you think about it, you lower the car with a standard length panhard bar and basically the rear axle wants to shift to the driver's side pushing the tire out further over there which is not a good thing. So, the adjustable bar gives you the ability to basically center the rear axle under the car which is huge in lowering of course, gives you the best performance and to do so you pretty much just got to rig up a crude little plumb-bob just to make your measurements. Load up the suspension. Make your measurements, make some small adjustments if you need to and then get this puppy centered underneath the car, so we're going to make our final adjustments and see how we look. All right, guys, so that's going to do it for today. Obviously we kept things pretty simple. Just took care of the caster/camber plates, spring, shocks, struts, and the panhard bar, but the car's finally looking good. Ride height wise, we got rid of that ugly factory wheel gap and I'm very happy with how the car's sitting now. I do have some wheels in mind for the car of course, but it is still a little nasty up here in the northeast. There's still a lot of salt on the road, so in the meantime I'm sticking with the Brembo wheels. Do have a little bit of appearance stuff coming up. You can kind of see where that GT500 theme's coming from and of course definitely going to dive into the engine bay and take care of some parts there. So, thanks for checking out my 2014 Mustang GT guys and stay tuned for more.

Both plates ended up having a snapped bolt when being torqued Down to spec. Also , you can ONLY adjust camber in these . Not casterHelpful (2)

These make all sorts of noises when turning slow or driving through small areas slowly, it’s bad enough that I might have to re do this job using different plates. Very annoyed with these.Helpful (1)

Easy intall andperfect alignment!
Finally got around to my install using the Koni STR.T lowering kit and the Eibach springs with the JandM strut mount plates. I am very pleased with the outcome and my alignment shop got it dialed in perfectly with the lowered springs. Just a side note if you have a convertible as I do you will have more trouble installing the rear springs because of the extra metal bracing below the rear axle.Helpful (1)

Caster Camber Plates
The car was lowered 1-1/2" causing the camber to be 2 degrees negative. This wore the inside edge of the tread. With the adjustment plates we put the camber and caster back to the nonmail factor settings. This improved handling by tighten up the loose condition caused with excusive camber.Helpful (0)

They give a drop
Kinda weird situation. There is a question in "Questions and Answers" section about additional drop and AM Staff member replied that there is no additional drop. As a fact, after I installed the plates I've got additional 0.25"-0.5" drop. I'm running Koni strurts SR performance springs. 2013 Mustang GT. 5 stars for the product, 1 star for AM staff.Helpful (2)

Easier to mount than stock
The stock ford mounts kept coming apart while mounting using the spring compressor on the floor in my garage. These are contained and easy to mount. Also made the alignment easier. Also also, I have Roush 1/2 lowering springs on all four corners, I think these are flater than the stock mounts, lowering the car more, (not a problem, looks great) I could be wrong about this though.Helpful (2)

The JandM Caster Camber Plates installed as advertised and allowed my repair shop all the adjustment necessary to put my daily driver in SPEC with SR lowering springs, and Koni struts and shocks. Excellent product and absolutely zero noise from the engine compartment.Helpful (3)

Received on time, install done in a shop. Performs as expected, no squeaks or additional noise. Camber was really off with the addition of 1" wheel spacers. I did have to remove strut tower brace and at some point will modify or buy new one to accommodate. However the camber is on point and stands as close to perfect as you can get. Great product, well built from quality materials.Helpful (5)
I have a 2014 GT Track Pack car that I will be lowering. I'm going with the Eibach Pro Springs for final 1.0 drop in the front and 1.5 in the rear. My question is...several people have eluded that using these CC plants will cause an additional drop of .5 to .75" inch on top of what the springs will give me. If they cause additional drop that's not a big deal but I need to know to pick the proper spring. Thanks, Dave
Caster/Camber plates will not cause your vehicle to have an additional drop. They will realign your front struts. In this instance, you will not have any drop other than the drop of the springs that you choose to purchase and install.
Will these work with Koni STR.Ts and eibach sportlines?
The J&M Adjustable Caster Camber Plates will fit with Koni struts and Eibach Sportlines.
Will they Fit Megan Racing Coilovers?
The J&M Adjustable Caster Camber Plates fit most coil over kits, however, with the myriad of combinations, it would be difficult to confirm the exact fitment, we apologize.
Will these work on the OEM struts? I currently have springs but still have the stock front struts.
These are able to be used with the stock front struts.
can I use strut tower brace still? I'm wondering if I can still use my factory strut tower brace when installing these plates? On a 2014 GT
Yes. The plates use the stock holes so there should be no issues installing the factory brace.
These will fit with SR Performance struts.
This combination should work just fine together!

You can replace your strut mounts with these and should not have to purchase new ones!
The plates will adjust the camber and caster in your vehicle, which can be off when lowering your vehicle, and can cause other issues. Additionally, this has a lifetime warranty through J&M Products.
The J&M Adjustable Caster Camber Plates will replace the strut mounts and include new bearings.
This will work with your set up yes.
