Default Caster Camber Plate Kit

I have a 2004 convertible 4.6 and purchased the EIbach Pro Kit. My mechanic suggested that I get the caster camber kit so I can get the car aligned properly. I searched and could not find the correct Eibach kit for the springs. Any help? Thanks in advance. Ed.

How low are you going? Also our cars have a fair amount of camber movement with out the plates. We if you take off your top bearing plate you'll notice it is slotted but has a tab stopping it from sliding, cut the tab off and you'll have a lot more camber movement. If you want camber caster plate then pretty much any of them from 94-04 will work, they are all same. It doesn't matter what springs you have on. Also there are 3 bolt camber caster plates and 4 bolt. I'm a fan of the 4 bolt and use them in our cars because with the 4 bolt ones you have even clamping pressure on the bearing and plate and it doesn't wear out that much, but you have to drill a new hole for the fourth bolt and slot it like the other three. If you go 3 bolt camber caster plate you just need to put it in, no funny business. Just be in mind that if you get a cheap 3 bolt one that you have uneven clamping pressure and in my case it makes a ton of noise over time.

Thanks for all of your input. I am using the Eibach Pro Kit and it's not much lowered. 1.3 in front and 1.4 in back. I will go with the caster camber plate. This is a great site. Ed.

The problem with the four bolt cc-plates is that they aren't a direct bolt on, but we sell those too:
