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.

I purchased these Max Motorsports caster camber adjustment plates to install with a set of front lowering springs on my 2014 Mustang GT. By following the included instructions, the installation was fairly straightforward and took about 4 hours. The quality and operation of the product is superior and makes adjustments a breeze. These are a must if you want to align your Mustang correctly.Helpful (0)

These caster/camber plates are as described and allow for independent adjustment of caster and camber. Haven't aligned yet but I'm sure it won't be an issue. Only problem is they shorted me 4 nuts for the strut mount.Helpful (0)

Can’t meet stock camber specs
Installed this setup along with Koni Yellows and Eibach Pro springs. Attaching these plates to the struts was a bit of a pain due to factory mounts...had to separate factory mounts and then attach these to the remaining lower portion of factory mount...have to watch out for those ball bearings getting loose. Recommend buying two extra mounts to replace the old. My biggest issue is the alignment shop can’t meet the factory specs of approx -0.7. Shop could get anymore positive than -1.4...appears to be hitting something underneath. That may work better for me if I autocross, but may impact tire wear for normal day to day driving. Plates were installed per the instructions. In talking to MM, they mentioned that they have seen this with a few cars, but it is rare. Looking to see if I need to even worry about this or try a different vendor product like Vorshlag.Helpful (10)

These were added when I lowered my GT w/Steeda ultralite springs. The garage that performed the install said when they had it aligned they were able to get a perfect alignment with plenty of adjustment for the future. Great quality product! Full day install for all upgrades (springs, caster plates and panhard bar alignment). JohnHelpful (9)
Would this work on a Mustang GT 2014 with the FORD RACING ASSEMBLED HANDLING PACK Item #MFR3AMGTA Since this kit comes with the GT500 mounts: "The included M-18183-C GT500 style Upper Strut Mounts are already installed on the struts with the springs to allow installation on all 2005-2014 Mustang GT Coupes"
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will not work with this handling kit. You will need caster cambers designed for the 2011-2014 GT500 because of the upgraded strut mounts included in this kit.
I know you have to re use the bottom of the stock mount, but do you install the ball bearings of the old mount?
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will reuse the OEM Spring perch and pivot bearings for a complete installation.
I have a 2014 GT Track Pack car that I am going to be lowering. I'm going with the Eibach Pro Springs so that will drop the car 1.0 front and 1.5 rear. My question is...some CC plates also cause additional drop on top of what the lowering spring does. Will these cause additional drop that I need to plan for when selecting the right 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.
Strut Tower Brace? Will I be able to use my stock GT Premium strut tower brace with CC plates?
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will work with any brace that utilizes (2) bolt holes on the inner front towers. The factory brace will fit without a doubt!
Do these CC plates replace strut mounts completely? I know that J&M CC plates replace the upper strut mounts and I'm wondering if these are the same or if they're just the plate.
They do not replace the spring perch, you will re-use the bottom of the stock mount.
Yes, these will work with your setup.
It would be best to pair lowering springs with caster camber plates to allow for the best possible suspension geometry.
The Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates will work with the RTR shocks and struts equipped with the RTR Lowering Springs.
Depending on the features of your BC Coil-over it may already have caster/camber plates, in which that case these Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates would not work. If they do not have caster/camber plates, then they may fit however since we have not tested these two products together we would not be able to confirm their fitment.
Yes, this will work with a 2014 mustang GT with the track pack addition on the vehicle.
The Maximum Motorsports 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.
We do not offer the support bracket individually, please contact Maximum Motorsports to see if they can avail you with the support brackets.
Yes, these caster camber plates will work with the Eibach R2 coilovers.
