FRPP Front and Rear Lowering

Bringing up an old thread, but how do these feel on the stock struts. My plan right now is to just do the FRPP springs, necessary camber bolts/plates, and adjustable panhard. I was going to do the entire handling pack, but I like the way the car handles as is. I would just like it a tad lower.

 

I still have the OEM shocks/struts with the FRPP springs and they ride fine so far. I know the shocks/struts will tend to wear faster since they aren't optimized for the lower ride height, so they'll be replaced one day. In the mean while I am enjoying the enhanced ride and lower stance.

So with the FRPP springs only lowering this short amount, are camber/caster plates or bolts required to be able to get to hit say a -.75 degrees of camber for daily driving? Or will I be able to reach this setup without them? Sorry for the questions about this simple stuff. I can tell you everything you need to know about Honda/Acura suspensions, but I have just been out of the domestic cars for too long...lol. My last Mustang was in '96.

Lowering the front end will increase negative camber. My camber is set to -0.8 (driver's side) and -0.9 degrees with MM camber/caster plates and you can see from the picture below that the strut stem is positioned outboard of center. I would have to believe on my car, you can't get to -0.75 degrees without a means to adjust camber. Could it be withing spec without the camber plates? .... Perhaps, but I wanted to be able to dial-in the camber to minimize tire wear.

Awesome this is what I wanted to know. I agree with you totally on being able to dial in the settings you want. I have never cheated out on doing a suspension setup right, so I guess I will be doing the camber/caster plates on here. Thanks for the help and the pics; they helped put it into perspective.
