Likewise, people ask, do I need camber plates with lowering springs?

If you purchased a set of lowering springs it's extremely important to get a set of aftermarket caster and camber plates. After lowering your Mustang, you will need a front end alignment, and this is where your new caster and camber plates will come in handy.

do I need camber plates with coilovers? Well since they designed it for the factory ride height, when you lower the vehicle it will throw off important suspension geometries, including some that will throw off camber. A camber plate will be installed on top of the coilover strut and will allow the coilover to lean towards or away from the vehicle.

In this regard, what do camber plates do?

Camber plates are basically an adjustable adapter for your shocks. They install usually on top of the strut and allow for fine camber adjustments. Camber plates are available for most car/suspension set-ups.

Do you need camber kit when lowering car?

When you lower the car, the camber will go out and you need a camber kit to fix it. However, I find it is not necessary to correct the camber in most cases. Most people think they need a camber kit because of a tire-wear concern. The reality is, TOE ANGLE kills tires WAY faster than camber ever will.
