Question GT500 or Steeda HD strut mounts?

I am going to install Steeda Sport springs and Koni STR.T struts/shocks on my 2011 Brembo Stang soon. My question is which strut mounts to use, GT500 mounts or the Steeda HD mounts, and why? Are the GT500 mounts going to be the weak link if I go that route? I don't want to spend the extra $$ on the Steeda's unless there is a real benefit. The car is a DD and will be mostly driven on the street. Maybe 1 HPDE per year.

The big benefit you get with the Steedas over the GT500's is the camber adjustability.

Depending on what your daily driving is like, you may not need or want quite as much negative camber as the drop will give you for that part of your driving. But you'd probably want more than that at an HPDE or auto-X, and you'd have the ability to temporarily run the more aggressive setting. DIY'ing camber is easier than you might think.

'08 GT coupe, 5M, wheels, tires, pads, fluid, a few suspension mods . . . finally lowered (all of half an inch)

'10 Legacy 2.5GT, 6M (hers) . . . '01 Maxima 20AE, 5M (spare, winter driver)

I got the "GT500" mounts and they are exactly, EXACTLY the same as the ones i took off the car. It's a **** design and I am going to upgrade the the Steedas as soon as I get the money. I don't plan on lowering my car so I don't need the adjustment, but the quality is so much better than the ford design
