Review & Install Video
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.
Getting the correct alignment on a lowered Mustang with the limited stock caster and camber settings can be a nightmare. But you can wake up from that nightmare with a set of Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates. Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates have twice the range of motion of the stock parts, allowing you to dial in your alignment perfectly. They will even allow the use of the factory dust cover.
Maximum Motorsports designed their Caster Camber plates to be double adjustable. These plates feature separate adjusting slots to change the caster or the camber independent of one another.
These Caster Camber Plates are constructed from durable TIG welded steel for extra strength and feature spherical bearings that allow for a greater range of motion without binding, unlike old fashioned urethane bushing. These plates are completed in a durable black powdercoat finish for long lasting protection.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates are designed to fit all 1994 to 2004 V6 and V8 Mustangs, excluding the 2003-2004 SVT Cobra.
