My car is lowered about 1 1/4"- 1 1/2" and it just barely falls into camber spec without plates. In fact it's right AT the negative camber limit for my alignment shop's specs. I have personally never seen caster/camber plates on a TC, but if you are only lowering it 1 1/2" or so you might check it out first and see if you really need the plates. If so, I don't see why other Fox body caster/camber plates wouldn't work. Anyone actually done this?

Usually an aftermarket CC plate will give you a bit more camber adjustment for a lowered car. The other benefit is the addition of positive caster, which helps out a bit on the handling on the front of these cars. You can't get massive amounts from a std plate, because you wind up limited to the hole in the tower. BUt a couple degrees is a couple degrees. I made a set and modified the towers on one of my cars to get an extra 3 deg or so over what a std CC plate offers. Anyway, the next question is that the TBird plates are different from a Mustang. You can make a Mustang set work if you turn one around and elongate the front hole rearwards so it will bolt up. There are a couple manfs for TBird specific plates. I think Maximum, HPM and KB have a set. I think Pete bought the last set KB had assembled, but I know for a fact they have the bits to make several more...if they can figure out which pieces are which..(snicker)...
Anyhoo, a set of CC plates aren't a neccessity, BUT they do make a difference.

You won't *need* em but I'd say get some. Forget moding stang ones...maximum motorsports makes a set for a TC specific and my set works flawlessly. Allows so much adjustment its almost ridiculous.
