Default What do you guys think?

Ive been debating on whether to intall my caster/camber plates on while i put my Tokico shocks/struts and H&R Springs in. Its an estimated 1.5" drop all around, so I am not sure if I will need them or not. If I install them and dont need them then i will be wasting money and time. What do you guys think?

I've always heard 1.5 is the MAX you can safely go without them, so it's really up to you. I personally would try it without them first.

+1 but having the CC plates certainly won't hurt you. I have a Tutorial for the install of those shocks/struts and springs if you want it. PM me your email addy.

I have the sportlines and no c/c plates, but im ordering them some time soon, I would just put them on and keep it safe.

I'd get them. Couldn't hurt you. When you installed the springs you'll have to get it aligned anyway so get the adjustable caster camber plates to make the alignment more precise than the factory plates.

Definately wouldnt hurt. Ive seen drops as little as an inch to a inch and a quarter need an alignment with CC plates.

1 thing ive learned. If company advertises 1.5inch drop its going to be 1.2-1.3 and if a company advertises 8 hp they mean 4-5. Its going to be about 1.3 inch drop in the front 1.2 inch in the back. I have eibach pro-kit and my car lined up perfectly without c/c plates.
