- Maximum Motorsports Caster/Camber Plates Installation Guide (94-04)
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.

Nice caster camber plates!
These caster camber plates are really nice. Got them while they were on sale so i lucked up on that. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Should be able to align my lowered 94 cobra with ease now.Helpful (0)

Very solid, good adjustments.
These are super thick compared to the original ones, and the ability to slide the strut independently on both axes (caster and camber) is excellent. The tech that did my alignment even commented on them as I was leaving. Install isn't too terrible, and reasonably forgiving as long as your holes are close.Helpful (0)

Will this work with a strut brace ?
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates can not be paired with a strut tower brace.
Will these Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates work with KW V1 Coil Over Kit in a 2000 Mustang GT?
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will be compatible with the KW Suspension V1 Coilover Kit.
Will this fit on my 99 mustang cobra with bilstein struts
Yes, these would be compatible with the Bilstein struts on the 99 Cobra.
Do you believe these to be compatible with Raceland coilovers?
Will this fit 2003 cobra with out bilstein ?
Unfortunately this kit will not fit 03-04 Cobra models.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates are compatible with the Koni Sport Struts.
Yes, these caster camber plates are compatible with the older SR coilovers.
Air Lift front shocks generally include a pre-installed caster camber adjustment plate that is a perfect fit for your specific Mustang. Aftermarket caster camber plates are known to have fitment issues with the Air Lift suspension struts since the Strut Shaft generally runs a different diameter compared to standard gas struts. We have had people run different camber plates but is not something we recommend without professional modification. Reach out to one of our team members or a specialist at Air Lift with any questions or concerns.
The SR Coilovers are going to have their own built in caster camber plates, so these would not work for them.
Yes, this kit will work with the Eibach Pro-Street Coilover kit.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates are designed to work with the OEM suspension setup. Since we do not carry BC Coil overs, we are unable to confirm fitment with the Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates, however if your coil overs can be used with OEM strut mounts or caster camber plates designed for stock suspension, you should not have an issue.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates would be acceptable for this use, with a very sturdy bearing and plate design.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates are not compatible with the SR Coilovers.
These caster/camber plates will not be needed with the ST coilover kit as the ST coilover kit already comes with its own caster/camber plates.
Yes these caster camber plates will work with QA1 Front CoilOvers
