Hey guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with these Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates, that are available for a wide range of Mustangs, from 1979 all the way up to the S550 Mustang. These caster camber plates are going to be a good option for those Mustang owners out there that have lowered their Mustang with a drop of more than one and a half inches and would like to gain some alignment adjustability from a brand that's highly reputable for its quality and performance. Lowering your car is going to change the geometry of the suspension, which is what's going to create the need for an alignment in order to keep everything in spec and proper. Because the factory plates only have so much adjustment, aftermarket caster camber plates like these ones here, are better at dialing in alignment specs, so they're going to have benefits like more consistent steering and better steering response, especially if you have suspension upgrades already. Tires are obviously going to wear better when the car's properly aligned, and another little plus here of the caster camber plates is the fact that you can actually dial in your suspension for a particular track or demand, depending on what you're planning on doing with your Mustang. Looking at these on the table here, these are a set for the 2015 and up Mustang, so they're going to look a little different than the traditional caster camber plates that you may be used to seeing, but as the chassis and suspension change throughout the different gens, the style of the plates change too, so just make sure that you're shopping in the correct gen for your car. Like I said in the beginning, Maximum Motorsports has created plates for all Fox Body through S550 Mustangs with the same features. All of these plates have Teflon-lined, spherical bearings and they're all powder-coated black, and have a two-plate design, which separates the caster and the camber adjustment. This allows for caster or camber to be adjusted independently. You don't see the two-plate design in all caster camber plate options that are out there, so this is definitely a nice touch. And it's definitely worth mentioning here that these plates are capable of the largest continuous range of alignment settings possible. So because Maximum Motorsports is known for quality and performance, and because these plates have features like the ones that I just mentioned, they're at a premium price point. They tend to be one of the higher priced options on the site, usually costing between $200 and $400, depending on which gen you're shopping for. And just as a side note, these plates might not work with all coilover setups, but those instances are noted on the product pages, so just keep an eye out. Installing these plates is a little time consuming, but I wouldn't consider it a difficult install, even for the handful of guys out there that are going to have to do some drilling for these, and I'm talking to you '94 to '04 guys. You're going to at least want a jack and some stands, and the plates do come with detailed install instructions to help you through if you haven't done this before. No matter which gen you have, you're probably looking at about a few hours to complete the install and I'll call this a two on our scale. And just remember that you should take your car for an alignment after the install. Wrapping things up here, if you've lowered your Mustang or you're looking for some extra alignment adjustability, then Maximum Motorsports has a highly-engineered, high-quality and performance-proven set of caster camber plates for you to check out no matter what year your Mustang is. Feel free to check these out more for yourself and see what others are saying, or see if they're for you. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Installed myself, and the instructions were actually pretty good. Just followed them to a T and had no issues. Pretty straight forward. Had the alignment done right after and they dialed in my caster camber. Time will tell for issues after hitting rough road of coarse. In Southeast Michigan it’s not hard to find mine fields here. Almost to scared to drive it.Helpful (0)

A must for lowered cars
Lowered (eibach sportlines) my car without getting the plates and even with camber bolts couldn't get the alignment sorted. Had my shop install these and now everything lines up perfectly. Save yourself the headache and purchase caster/camber plates when you lower your stang.Helpful (4)

Does this model fit the ford racing handling package?
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will pair up with the Ford Performance Assembled Adjustable Handling Pack Item #50498 (http://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-adjust-handlingpack-0514gt-assembled.html) with no issues!
Will these Caster Camber Plates fit with an SR Performance Strut tower brace? The SR Performance Strut tower brace has four holes on each side, this caster Camber Plate seems to have five bolts each... Will it work together, can't tell from the customer pics. Thanks.
Yes. I have both
When I installed the MM CC plates on my '05 GT (stock suspension), MM also sold a coilover version of their plates. I want to verify that the plates I have on the car will work for Pedders Extreme Xa Coilover Kit.
These will not work with the Pedders coilovers. WIth the Pedders coilover kit, you will need to get the Pedders CC plates as well.
Will the M.M. Caster Camber Plates work for Eibach Pro-System-Plus Suspension Kit w/ Solid Rear Sway Bar? I have a 2007 gt. Also, will I need or should I use Ford Performance GT500 Style strut Mount upgrade, or does the caster camber plates take this into consideration..
These caster camber plates would indeed work with that suspension kit. No need for the strut mount upgrade if you are getting the caster camber plates.
Does this fit the ford racing handling pack?
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates (05-10 All; 07-14 GT500) will fit with the Ford Performance Assembled Adjustable Handling Pack - Coupe (05-14 GT) item number 50498.
lf the components appear to be installed backwards, l do recommend re-checking install to avoid any issues.
The caster camber plates all fit the same application, unless otherwise specified for a specific application. These will offer no different fitment than the Steeda version.
The camber plates will not require any additional parts for the installation.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will work with Steeda springs and struts.
So long as these were properly and securely installed these should not create added noise with the vehicle.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates indeed adjust from inside the engine bay.
Hey Lance, These will work with stock suspension and then will allow for proper adjustment when you get that handling kit!
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will fit with both Eibach shocks and Cobra Jet drag springs.
