So something like the camber bolts from Eibach negate the need for replacing the strut mounts? Thats one big reason I havent pulled the trigger on new suspension because I dont want to blow a bunch of extra coin on something I dont really need...

You can borrow a spring compressor thru the Advance Auto or Auto Zone loan-a-tool program. Did that when I changed my struts. Pretty sure it was Advance Auto.

Camber bolts only allow for camber adjustability. The reason you are getting the mounts is because the stock ones are a weak point, right? and will start to clunk over bumps. The camber bolts will not do a thing for this.

Def need to get the Steeda HD mounts. From what I've read its a waste to get the GT500 mounts are really no different design and still are prone to the popping. I just ordered them myself. The camber bolts only allow for adjustment, and as far as I know have 0 effect on structural strength.

Until he had to replace the whole unit later on from wear and tear.

Save yourself the hassle, and the coin in the long run. Get the Steeda mounts and never worry about it again.

Plus they are easy to make hot-swap points for more aggressive camber at the track.

I think tx_zstang was saying get the camber bolts instead of cc plates.
